So, what is AI really? In this course, we will draw on our familiarity with such “everyday” applications, to explore the technical, but also social and ethical aspects, of the modern AI paradigm.
The main objective of the course is to help you appreciate what today’s AI is, as well as to understand the basic elements of AI technologies, and how they are developed. You will become familiar with the fundamental definitions and concepts around AI, but also the widespread methods used in the creation of systems. In particular, an introduction to data-driven AI, based on machine learning, is provided. The role of personal data in the AI ecosystem – provided to companies via the use of services such as search engines and social media – will also be discussed.
