It’s science fiction no more. Artificial Intelligence is now one of the most valuable assets in the business world.
“Artificial Intelligence is a ‘must-have’ capability for global companies...Without it, they are competitively impaired, if not at grave risk of being obsoleted in place,” says Jean-François Gagné, CEO of research lab and start-up incubator Elements AI.
For entrepreneurs who have a keen interest on deep tech and its transformational power in business, learning more about artificial intelligence (AI) is a good way to start. Here are some online courses that can make you stay competitive:
Coursera partners with top universities and organizations around the world to provide global learners access to various courses no matter where they are. Every course includes recorded video lectures, hands-on projects, peer-reviewed assignments, and discussion forums.
