PM Narendra Modi has been quite vocal about the benefits of ‘Artificial Intelligence’ and he even spoke about it on his radio talk show ‘Mann Ki Baat’ last month. Google on March 1 introduced “Learn with Google AI”. It is an online course developed by Machine Learning (ML) experts who work in Google. It is aimed at people learning about concepts, develop skills and apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) to real-world problems.
Programme Manager for Google’s machine learning education, Zuri Kemp in an official statement said,”We believe it’s important that the development of AI reflects as diverse a range of human perspectives and needs as possible. So, Google AI is making it easier for everyone to learn ML by providing a huge range of free, in-depth educational content.” “This is for everyone — from deep ML experts looking for advanced developer tutorials and materials, to curious people who are ready to try to learn what ML is in the first place,” he added.
Kemp also said that the engineers had originally developed the practical introduction to machine learning fundamentals for Googlers. As of now, over 18,000 Googlers have enrolled in the course to enhance camera calibration for Daydream device, improve streaming quality at Youtube and building the virtual reality for Google Earth.
“MLCC’s success at Google-inspired us to make it available to everyone,” Kemo said.
The course features videos from ML experts at Google, coding exercises using cutting-edge TensorFlow API, interactive visualisations illustrating ML concepts and a focus that teaches how practitioners implement ML in real life. Originally developed by Google’s engineering education team, more than 18,000 Googlers have enrolled in MLCC so far.
The course will take approximately 15 hours and is designed for amateurs who do not have any knowledge in machine learning.
