A few words on AI and Machine learning


The information revolution of recent decades has seen a dramatic rise in the volume and complexity of the big data being collected. To deal with these volumes, effective information processing and analysis are critical. Machine learning is the basis for numerous key applications in artificial intelligence (natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, and self-driving cars) and in business analytics (stock market prediction, fraud detection, and e-trading personalization).

The machine learning and artificial intelligence specialization provides knowledge in the theoretical and algorithmic foundations of artificial intelligence and machine learning; in tools for effective big data storage and processing, such as distributed storage and parallel processing; and in such fields as computer vision and language processing, where AI applications can achieve near-human results.
