To help people educate themselves about machine learning and spur more interest in this invaluable component of today's increasingly automated business environment, Google just launched a new website: Learn with Google AI.
Learn with Google AI is a collection of resources, apps and courses to help individuals get to grips with AI -- specifically machine learning -- an area where much of today's AI research is focused. The site centers on the Machine Learning Crash Course, led by Google Director of Research Peter Norvig.
The course consists of about 15 hours of instruction on machine learning, initially used to teach Googlers internally about machine learning. Now the company has opened the course to everyone.
Google is arguably one of the world's leading machine learning researchers so when the tech giant publicly releases some of its teaching and resources, we mortals should probably sit up and take notice. While all the proper, game-changing, proprietary know-how remains tightly under wraps, the course could help coders entering AI and machine learning learn the technology and build simple apps.
While Google says the site is aimed at anyone with an interest in AI and machine learning, the vendor notes basic algebra knowledge and Python experience are helpful. Even if you lack those skills, just jump in: the best way to learn is by doing.
