Artificial Intelligence is predicted to impact every industry and every individual. But how many people actually know what it is, or what it means for us? That’s why Reaktor and the University of Helsinki have joined forces to offer a free online course – The Elements of AI – that explains the basics of AI without using complicated math or programming.
Our goal is to educate 1% of the Finnish population by the end of this year. But we can’t make it happen alone – that’s why we’re challenging you and your company to educate yourselves on AI during 2018. Take the #tekoalyhaaste pledge.
«We at Finnair want to be the frontrunners in utilizing technology. As we are building our first cases for AI, we want to offer everyone an opportunity to increase their understanding of what it really is. I think this is crucial for every organization not just in the future but already today.»
«We at Cargotec believe that within the next coming years, artificial intelligence will transform our industry and business. We are committed to improving efficiency, safety, as well as eco-efficiency of our industry, and see huge opportunities in AI making cargo handling more intelligent.»
«AI has the potential to revolutionize our patient encounters. In the future, doctors and other healthcare professionals won’t need to spend large amounts of time catching up on patient histories; instead, physicians can focus on interacting with the person.»
«For the financial industry, AI is a core competence – and it’s happening now. We need to be able to spot the opportunities, make use of them, and make AI work for us in the long term. We see that the time spent on learning about AI is an investment not only in our and Finnish competitiveness, but also in our clients’ wellbeing.»
«Unlock level 1 Machine Learning, it can solve problems that were previously too costly or even impossible to solve.
Targets: Games & Services
Range: Mobile games on global scale.»
«For businesses, Artificial Intelligence means a completely new era of probing. Companies that are willing to learn by experimenting are the ones making the most progress; and most likely the ones gaining the upper hand. Now is the perfect time to dive deep into the world of AI.»
«We use artificial intelligence every day, even though we may not realize it. Algorithms that learn are capable of solving complex problems, and the application areas are limited only by the depth of human imagination. Taking the time to learn about AI is one of the best investments you can make.»
«Helsinki is going to lead the way in how cities can benefit from digitalisation, and we've already started training our personnel in for example AI. This free course is a great addition to the training resources available to us all.»
«For AI to be successful, not only do we have to develop it; we also must work on finding diverse ways of utilizing AI. And it’s not just up to the engineers, which is why it’s so great that the Elements of AI course is free for anyone to attend. At the same time it tests new ways of learning as you don’t need previous experience to get started.»
«It’s hugely important that we understand what AI means for our lives. That’s why I want more young women to study the basics. When making decisions about AI, it’s valuable to have diverse viewpoints.»
«AI is going to have as big an impact on our society as electricity.»
«AI requires data, knowledge and time. We have plenty of data already, and this course gives you the knowledge. The clock is ticking, so start right away.»
