Applied AI from Concept to Market
This course provides an overview of the processes for specifying, designing, and launching AI/Deep Learning products. AI/Deep learning applications are predicted to bring the next wave of disruptive innovation to many industries. In addition to the highly visible applications such as Autonomous Cars, Grand Master Chess winning Apps, Industrial Robots, Customer service Chatbots, AI software is already changing work processes in many professions such as law, Journalism, finance and medicine. Many platforms have become available to assuage the growing appetite for new AI/deep learning applications. The course will give an overview of the software platforms available with detailed examination of one of the major tools. The course includes a team project where the business and technical methods presented are used to launch a virtual AI/deep learning product. Students interested in registering for this course should be familiar with the programming language, Python.
