Artificial Intelligence is the science and practice of systems that exhibit the characteristics we associate with intelligent human behavior. In the first session we will look at the question of “what is AI?” How are probability models, optimization, and machine learning implemented? Session two will focus on “AI and Corporate America” as we discuss some of the applications of AI in business and whether AI needs regulation. The third session will view “AI around the World” as we look at some of the applications affecting international relations and how the US should respond.
The course will give you a practical grounding in the science of artificial intelligence. You will acquire the ability to identify, discuss, and evaluate issues surrounding existing and novel AI applications.
