Why Enroll for the Applied Artificial Intelligence course?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being used extensively to solve real-world complex problems. From driving automobiles to providing virtual assistance, use of artificial intelligence in our day to day lives are projected to increase manifold in the coming years. In fact, as per a survey conducted by PwC, business leaders said they believe AI is going to be fundamental in the future. In fact, 72% termed it a "business advantage."

At Columbia Engineering, we are fascinated by the possibilities of data-driven technologies. We have created the Applied Artificial Intelligence course, in partnership with EMERITUS, to help students across the world understand how this data-centric approach can be applied to your daily lives.
