Microsoft has just launched a new, free, self-paced course on the edX platform. Introduction to Artificial Intelligence sets out to show how Machine Learning provides the foundation for AI, and how you can use cognitive services in your apps.
The course will take an estimated 3-4 hours per week for four weeks, including lectures from Microsoft Learning Experience's Graeme Malcolm, further reading, hands-on labs, and assessments. You have until the course end date, December 31st, to complete all its graded coursework.
According to edX, students will learn how to:
All of this complements the developments Microsoft has made in what was originally known as Project Oxford and has since become Microsoft Cognitive Services and with conversational bots, including Cortana.
There are no programming prerequisites, but Python experience might help, as would an understanding of variables, loops, branching, and other software basics.
The course has four main modules, each of which culminates in a hand-on lab.
An Azure subscription is required to complete the hands-on labs in this course and for this you can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Azure, or engage in various Microsoft programs that include limited free access to Azure. A credit card may be required to authenticate your identity.
Like other Microsoft courses on edX this course is free. However, a Verified Certificate costs $99.
