Artificial Intelligence - A Gentle Introduction

Matthias Biniok


We start with a definition of artificial intelligence and explore the different technologies behind this topic. We will have a look at typical use cases in AI and talk about their application in various industries. We will try to find an intuition for the math behind machine learning to understand how it works. Also, we will talk about the current state of AI, challenges, as well as how to start your own AI project.
