Study 12-15 hrs/week and complete in 3 months.
Learn from the world’s foremost AI experts, and develop a deep understanding of algorithms being applied to real-world problems in natural language processing, computer vision, bioinformatics, and more. Practice a structured approach for applying these techniques to new challenges, and emerge fully prepared to advance in the field.
Learn AI algorithms that have been successfully applied to real world problems in NLP, computer vision, bioinformatics, and more. Learn how to solve problems with these tools so that you can apply them in the real world.
Explore probabilistic models for pattern recognition with Sebastian Thrun, founder of Google’s self-driving car team. Discover how to implement key AI algorithms with Peter Norvig, co-author of the leading AI textbook. Learn how to frame and solve modern AI problems, and gain real-world experience.
Engage with a mentor consistently throughout your program experience. As you build your AI skills, the mentor will provide 1:1 support as you master new concepts and complete challenging projects.
Work on career-caliber projects that will populate and enhance your professional profile, and benefit from detailed and actionable feedback from project reviewers who will help ensure you're doing your best work.

Additionally, you should be able to follow and interpret pseudocode for algorithms like the example below and implement them in Python. You should also be able to informally evaluate the time or space complexity of an algorithm. For example, you should be able to explain that a for loop that does constant O(1) work on each iteration over an array of length n has a complexity of O(n).function Hill-Climbing(problem) returns a State current <- Make-Node(problem.Initial-State) loop do neighbor <- a highest-valued successor of current if neighbor.value ≤ current.value then return current.state current <- neighbor
We have a number of courses and programs we can recommend that will help prepare you for the program, depending on the areas you need to address. For example:
