EdX is an online learning platform trusted by over 12 million users offering the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Program in collaboration with Columbia University – ColumbiaX. Learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence,and apply them. Design intelligent agents to solve real-world problems including, search, games, machine learning, logic, and constraint satisfaction problems.

About

What do self-driving cars, face recognition, web search, industrial robots, missile guidance, and tumor detection have in common?

They are all complex real world problems being solved with applications of intelligence (AI).

This course will provide a broad understanding of the basic techniques for building intelligent computer systems and an understanding of how AI is applied to problems.

In this Artificial Intelligence (AI) course, part of the Artificial Intelligence MicroMasters program from Columbia University - ColumbiaX you will learn about the history of AI, intelligent agents, state-space problem representations, uninformed and heuristic search, game playing, logical agents, and constraint satisfaction problems.

What you'll learn
  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and intelligent agents, history of Artificial Intelligence
  • Building intelligent agents (search, games, logic, constraint satisfaction problems)
  • Machine Learning algorithms
  • Applications of AI (Natural Language Processing, Robotics/Vision)
  • Solving real AI problems through programming with Python

Hands on experience will be gained by building a basic search agent. Adversarial search will be explored through the creation of a game and an introduction to machine learning includes work on linear regression.

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) programme is part of the Artifiacial Inteligence MicroMasters Programme.
