IIT Delhi launches a free 12-week long artificial intelligence course primarily targeting undergraduate students. This course will be taught by Prof. Mausam, who was named 25th most influential scholar in AI for 2019 by ArnetMiner.
Hosted on National Program on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL), an e-learning platform by the Government of India, the course is ideal for beginners to get started with artificial intelligence.
The course follows a book — third edition of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig. Although the course will only cover around 50 percent of the book, it will touch upon a wide range of artificial intelligence techniques.
Some of the key concepts in the free artificial intelligence course by IIT Delhi include adversarial search, bayesian networks, decision theory, Markov decision processes, reinforcement learning, and neural networks.
The course starts on 18 January 2021, but the enrollments will be accepted till 25 January 2021. After the completion of the course on 9 April 2021, you can opt for an examination to get the certificate. However, the e-certification is not free; you will have to pay Rs 1000 to enroll for the examination.
Since the certification is optional, you can complete the entire course for free. Enroll for the free artificial intelligence course by IIT Delhi here.
