Course description

AI for Teachers

Technology and computers are becoming more and more capable every day. Moving forward, computers will become increasingly good at solving problems. That means humans will become the problem finders and definers , translating the world into terms a computer can understand. This course is designed to teach you how to "speak" to computers, preparing you for a future in which computers are increasingly powerful and prevalent.
