Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not only bringing forth unprecedented research, innovation and commercialisation opportunities, but also providing an entirely new methodology for scientific research and discovery. Effective application of AI requires a good understanding of its fundamental and an AI way of thinking. This lecture series aims at introducing AI to non-technical professionals who wish to employ AI in their scientific research and business development. It provides the necessary vocabulary and conceptual understanding required to describe and discuss problems and proper use of contemporary AI, machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL). In addition, it will allow participants to appreciate and understand some of the successful AI applications in real-world, as well as the limitations of AI techniques. The series will also provide the participants with general information on the commonly used AI tools and an opportunity to discuss their own problems with AI experts who deliver the lecture series.
The lecture series consists of the following four modules:
- A gentle introduction to contemporary AI and ML
- A gentle introduction to DL
- A gentle introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP)
- A gentle introduction to tools and systems of AI, ML and DL
