Artificial Intelligence (AI) Essentials Training Course

Learn The General Principles Of AI & Machine Learning

Introduction

BCS Membership Offer: If you do not hold a BCS certification and successfully pass the examination for this training course - you will be given one year's complementary BCS Membership. This offer is only valid for your first BCS qualification.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a methodology for using a non-human system to learn from experience and imitate human intelligent behaviour. The essentials certificate tests a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the terminology and the general principles of AI.

Our one-day Artificial Intelligence (AI) Essentials training course covers the different types of AI, the basic process of Machine Learning (ML), the challenges and risks associated with AI projects, and finally the future of AI and humans in the workplace.

Our Artificial Intelligence (AI) Essentials training course was developed and delivered by Dr Andrew Lowe - Andrew has 20 years plus of experience in academia and industry working with high-performance computing. He has worked with high-tech startups and large high-tech engineering organisations using some of the world’s most powerful computers. Andrew uses AI on a daily basis in the analysis of simulations (e.g. Weather, Extreme Environments, Engineering) he builds.
