Professional Certificate in Artificial Intelligence for Non-AI Scientists


Course Objectives

Artificial intelligence (AI) has transformed the way we live. AI identifies the fastest route to a destination, recommends music and movies, and screens job applications. Behind AI technology, techniques, and tools is the thinker – the human thinker who sees opportunities to mine with the technology.

This professional certificate will address both theoretical and practical aspects of AI to make the subject accessible to learners who do not have deep technical background. The programming skills introduced will provide the tools and framework for the development of data analytics and machine learning programmes widely used in AI. Skills and knowledge in-hand, participants would be better equipped to identify possible applications of AI in their workplace, with the option to use it to meet operational, customer support, or business support challenges.
