Elements of AI - Introduction to AI

  • What is Artificial intelligence (AI)? 

  • How does it influence you? 

  • What are the possibilities of AI? 

In cooperation with prg.ai, we offer you the introductory course to AI, which does not require deep mathematical or programming understanding. The online course was created by University of Helsinki together with the company Reaktor. The students of Charles University have an option of completing the course in Czech or English – the translation is provided by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University.
