Masterclass

Understanding what artificial intelligence (AI) is about

The application of AI is boosting, but its capabilities are not yet exploited to the fullest. In this introductory mastercourse, we will explore the potential of AI and walk through the different steps of an AI project, focusing on what needs to be taken into account in order to ensure that the project is successful. Also ethical, privacy and security considerations that should be considered will be taken into account.

The development, availability and affordability of highly performing computers and storage units has led to a boost in artificial intelligence (AI) and the creation of new, advanced applications, such as image and speech recognition, failure prediction, recommendation, etc. This advent has had a massive impact on our society and revolutionised the way industries, companies and organisations run their services. However, the true potential of AI is often misunderstood, leading to an under-exploitation of its capabilities.
On the other side, commercially available AI solutions often introduce the belief that realising an AI solution is easy and straightforward and that insights can be delivered by simply feeding data to their solution. Yet, AI is much more than that.
