Free online course – Elements of AI
More than 460 000 people have acquainted themselves with artificial intelligence through the widely popular crash course Elements of AI. We launched the Swedish version of the course because we firmly believe that a basic understanding is needed within the public to speed up innovation and benefit from AI.
Knowledge about AI should be for all
The educational platform of Elements of AI has been very successful in Finland, launched in 2018 as a collaboration between the University of Helsinki and the IT company Reaktor. The platform is intended to give the entire population, not just experts, a basic knowledge of what AI is.
The course is not about how to make money using AI or how to build your own AI platform. What we provide is general basic knowledge, an awareness of what the technology is, and how it is and can be used. It is also possible to get ECTS by applying through a collaboration with Linköpings Universitet.
The course Elements of AI - Grunderna i AI - was launched in Swedish on May 15, 2019, and until now, more than 32 000 students have signed up.
The course Elements of AI is a free online course for everyone with the aim of educating the Swedes in the basics of AI. Elements of AI comes in both English, Finnish and Swedish. The aim is to reach 1% of the Swedish population. The project is financed by Vinnova and coordinated in collaboration between AI Sweden, Reaktor, and Linköpings University.
