Google announces free AI lessons, with 'Learn with Google AI'
The site provides ways to learn core Machine Learning (ML) concepts, develop and hone one’s ML skills, and apply ML to real-world problems.
Technology is shaping the way we live and function. Pacemakers in the heart can fix your heart rate to normal, while cars can throw in recommendations and use computer vision to detect traffic patterns and predict accidents. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the future of computer science, thanks to digital data pattern recognition, which is enabling software to tell humans possible outcomes and scenarios. Taking its increased usage into concern, Google has announced the launch of an AI learning platform, which will be available to anyone willing to learn about the world of software and data.
According to Google, AI can solve complex problems and has the potential to transform entire industries, which means it's crucial that AI reflects a diverse range of human perspectives and needs. Google's mission is to use AI in all aspects of life, including healthcare, finance, retail, and education.
To help everyone understand how AI can solve challenging problems, Google has created a resource called ‘Learn with Google AI’. This site provides ways to learn core Machine Learning (ML) concepts, develop and hone one’s ML skills, and apply ML to real-world problems. From deep learning experts looking for advanced tutorials and materials on TensorFlow, to people who want to take their first steps with AI, anyone looking for educational content from ML experts at Google can find it here.
Learn with Google AI also features a new free course called Machine Learning Crash Course (MLCC). The course provides exercises, interactive visualisations, and instructional videos that anyone can use to learn and practice ML concepts.
Google’s engineering education team originally developed this fast-paced, practical introduction to ML fundamentals for Googlers. So far, more than 18,000 Google employees have enrolled in MLCC, applying lessons from the course to enhance camera calibration for Daydream devices, build virtual reality for Google Earth, and improve streaming quality at YouTube. MLCC's success at Google inspired them to make it available to everyone.
There’s more to come from Learn with Google AI, including additional courses and documentation. With this initiative, Google wants to continue to be a leader in AI like Amazon.
