When people Google “resources to learn AI,” “Accessible AI Education” or a variation of those keywords to educate themselves about the major risings in artificial intelligence, machine learning and related fields, countless blogs, courses and bootcamps appear in the search feed.
Paralysis by analysis ensues. What resource do you choose? What is the cost? What is the time commitment? By introducing its new Google AI website, the tech giant seeks to reduce this problem and make learning AI and machine learning much more accessible and more affordable.
Google has been continuously expanding its open AI education efforts and states on the site, that the Google team is “working to make AI accessible by providing lessons, tutorials and hands-on exercises for people at all experience levels.”
The site makes it very easy for different user types such as students, researchers, software engineers or even “curious cats” to gain access to the appropriate materials via a simple drop-down filter bar. All a user needs to go is input who they are, the type of content they seek and what stage of machine learning development they are in.
One of the main components of this site is the new free course called “Machine Learning Crash Course.” The course features 15 hours of materials + lecturers from Google researchers, 25 lessons, over 40 different hands-on exercises and real-world case studies. The course also provides an in-depth Machine Learning glossary to clarify any terms related to AI and machine learning. Components of the course are broken down into bite-size videos accompanied by transcripts, exercises and more thus enabling people to complete the course (for free) at their own pace.
As the demand for AI and machine learning experts increases, Google seeks to empower anyone who wants to learn these skillsets with the necessary tools to do so in a free and accessible way. The Machine Learning Crash Course will more than likely pave the way for other similar courses in the near future. Keep on the lookout for more from Google.
