Artificial intelligence has been studied for decades, but recently it has made significant progress. Advances in analyzing images and processing language are making an impact in many aspects of life, and that impact is likely to accelerate in the coming years. In this class, using almost no math or statistics, the intuition behind A.I., as well as A.I.’s implications for the future, will be presented in a way that anyone can understand.
This is a three-session master class. In the first two sessions, teachers learn from the master. In the third, participants have a rare and valuable opportunity to exchange ideas with other brilliant teachers. Participants are assigned a small amount of homework to prepare for each session.
