About this course

Skip About this course

Google AI for Anyone teaches you about what Artificial Intelligence is. You’ll cut through the hype and learn about AI and Machine Learning.

As its name suggests, this course is for anybody -- you don’t need a computer science, mathematics or AI background to understand it. No programming skills or prior knowledge are needed.

We’ll take you through, from first principles what the fuss is all about, and you’ll get hands-on in playing with data to teach a computer how to recognize images, sounds and more.

As you explore how AI is used in the real world (recommender systems, computer vision, self-driving etc.) you will also begin to build an understanding of Neural networks and the types of machine learning including supervised, unsupervised, reinforcement etc. You will also see (and experience) what programming AI looks like and how it is applied.

From here you will be able to continue your journey through the emerging fields of AI and ML and related technologies. In so doing, you will formulate a basis to understand and discuss AI and ML related matters in your personal and professional life.
