Course Description

Get Acquainted with Generative AI

Artificial Intelligence is reshaping our world like never before. Generative AI is a type of AI model that can create new content, from text to images and more. In this non-technical course, you will learn this emerging field's key concepts and how to prepare for a future where such AIs are pervasive.

Understand How Generative AI Works

You'll start by comprehending how these models create content, where they fit into the machine learning landscape, and how they are developed. From gathering training data to evaluating and improving models, you'll learn what AI companies must consider and do to bring generative AI tools into the world.

Given the power of generative AI, we will also consider how laws and ethics play into building and using these models. You'll learn how to avoid bias and apply generative AI in a responsible way.

Get the Right Mindset for Utilizing These Tools

Finally, you’ll look at the future of generative AI and how we can leverage and collaborate effectively with these tools. After this course, you, too, will be able to unlock the creative capabilities of generative AI. Let's go!
