AIL I - AI for Everyone

Artificial Intelligence is changing the world. It is changing jobs, creating them, and even replacing them (but less than you think). More than ever before, companies need employees who can use AI tools to solve problems creatively and responsibly. This non-technical AI crash course builds the foundational skills needed to do that and is designed to be valuable to anyone. Learn how to distinguish problems that AI is useful for, master prompt engineering to improve outputs, detect AI-generated output, analyze ethics and privacy, and stay up-to-date on one of the most transformative technologies of our lifetimes.

AIL II - AI for Decision Making

Artificial Intelligence decisions are often only as good as the person asking the question. In this course, you’ll learn how to ask the right ones and increase the productivity and innovation you can achieve with AI. Create better prompts, compare and contrast strengths and limitations, evaluate outcomes, and by the end of this course, understand and leverage the power of AI for decision-making across any discipline, opening up new career paths and personal growth.

AIL III - AI for Creativity

Generative AI has introduced a new paradigm of AI: the co-creator. Top professionals and companies use AI to improve productivity and creativity every day, and in this course, you’ll learn the iterative prompting, search, and functional evaluation metrics powering these uses. By the end of this course, you’ll integrate AI tools into a variety of creative skill sets, and your own projects, building new avenues for creativity in your career.

AIL IV - AI Ethics

Have you ever heard someone say that AI could take over the world? As drastic as that may sound, AI poses substantial ethical risks to businesses, people, and anyone taking advantage of the technology. Therefore, learning the ethical theories and legal frameworks surrounding AI is critical for anyone using AI tools. This course will explore the ethical standards and legal requirements in AI deployment, covering topics such as bias, privacy, and governance.
