No longer stuck in the fantasy world of science fiction, Artificial Intelligence (AI) today is a reality, and data is its fuel. It is a key component of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in which the physical, digital and biological worlds are being fused together in a way that will have a tremendous impact on our global culture and economy. While the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings along promises and opportunities, it also raises concerns about security, user privacy, data misuse, and more. People distrust artificial intelligence. It is the responsibility of business and data professionals to change that: add transparency, develop standards and share best practices to build trust and drive AI adoption. Business and data professionals today need AI frameworks and methods to achieve optimal results while also being good technology and business stewards. This course will teach you why AI and Big Data ethics is so critical and how to apply ethical and legal frameworks to initiatives in the data and analytics profession. You’ll explore practical approaches to data and analytics problems posed by work in AI, Big Data, and Data Science.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
