Description:
This course focuses on the fundamentals of what artificial intelligence is, how it is applied in business, and why it is heralded as the next industrial revolution. This course requires no prior technical knowledge, starting with an examination of what machine learning and artificial intelligence is, how it functions, and where it excels. We progress to building AI models, exploring potential benefits and pitfalls of AI in comparison to traditional decision-making and how the two are complementary, and discussing best-practices on implementation at organizations. We cover both the historical origins of AI---including how IBM's Deep Blue and Google's AlphaGo beat Chess and Go Grandmasters--as well as modern applications across a broad range of business sectors and applications. This course is a lecture-based course with case-based discussions, group activities and projects, and a final individual assignment. The overarching goal for the course is to enable you to confidently lead data science and design teams, know the expansiveness and limits of AI, and be capable of applying human and machine thought partnerships to grow businesses or disrupt Grand Masters in any field. MMM Class of 2019 should not enroll in this class as the content overlaps with DSGN 497-24
