How was this course created?
In spring 2018, Reaktor and the University of Helsinki came together to help people to be empowered, not threatened, by artificial intelligence (AI). Together they built the Elements of AI course to teach the basics of AI to people from a wide range of backgrounds.
The course has over 220,000 registered students so far and has been ranked on Class Central as one of the highest-quality free online courses. The course in available in English, Finnish, Swedish and Estonian.
And good news! The Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU has decided to invest in people’s future skills and will make the Elements of AI online course freely available in all official EU languages by 2021. See more information here
