Special Topics- Artificial Intelligence in Business

From self-driving cars to digital assistants, such as Amazon's Alexa, and cognitive computing platforms, such as IBM's Watson, many of today's revolutionary products depend on artificial intelligence (AI). This course is designed to introduce business students to AI in a thorough but non-technical manner. We will look at the history of AI and then look at developments in machine learning (ML) which have driven many of the recent commercial applications of AI. We will compare and contrast traditional natural language processing (NLP) and traditional expert systems, with ML systems based on deep learning. Student will be assigned readings and instructional videos which will be assessed through a couple of weekly quizzes, there will also be a class discussion and a hands-on ML exercise that will demonstrate how some of these AI systems "learn".
