How to learn about AI
Artificial intelligence is a tool for us to make our society better. AI is surrounded by a mystery because the underlying technology is difficult to understand. But fortunately, you do not have to learn all the details about AI to be able to use AI in your work. It’s the same with your computer: you do not need to know how a transistor works to be able to write a Word document.
AI is a great enabler. The great opportunities can be challenging. It can be difficult to know where to start if you are going to learn about AI. Use the competence guide to read more and discover courses with different levels of difficulty.
If you are interested in orienting yourself on AI, we recommend that you take some introductory courses available on the website. These contain almost no mathematics. It can be good to take some courses where you see how AI is applied in your field. Even if you will not learn about the underlying mathematics, you will benefit greatly from this orientation. It will make you better prepared for the working life of the future.
AI finds applications in many areas. Things that were previously handled manually are automated, and AI makes it possible to do completely new things that we could not imagine before. Such applications will affect your work, as it involves people and computers working together to get good results. To learn more about applications, it is not necessary for you to master the mathematics behind AI, but a background eduction that includes mathematics and statistics will give you a deeper understanding.
Advanced courses are for you who are already at a high level, and who want to immerse yourself in special areas. You probably consider developing systems that contain AI solutions.
