Learn the general principles of AI, its potential implications and capabilities and how to assess AI products and services from multiple angles.
AI is already pervasive across many sectors. The vast majority of software and systems already incorporate elements of AI, in its broadest sense, specifically in regard to machine learning.
APMG and BCS have developed the Essentials Certification in Artificial Intelligence, enabling individuals to embark their journey to understand AI and associated benefits and risks, including the insights to,
• Artificial intelligence as a piece of technology that can imitate and perform intelligent human behaviour, like problem-solving or recognition.
• How AI is relevant to any intellectual task, it has applications across every sector, including healthcare, automotive, finance, advertising, government and military.
• In financial services, for example, we can use AI to organise operations, invest in stocks, monitor behavioural patterns to reduce fraud and crime, and increase overall efficiency.
• Artificial Intelligence as a compelling area of computer science research and one which is becoming increasingly present in tech, society and the workplace.
