Estonia welcomes the AI challenge

Estonia has been a good example of a country excelling in digital transformation. Furthermore, it has surely inspired many others to begin their digital journey.

TalTech has brought one of the most popular online courses – “The Elements of AI” – to Estonia. It was developed in 2018 by the University of Helsinki and Reaktor OY by university professors, data scientists and designers with the purpose to help better understand artificial intelligence and its social role. As it happens, “The Elements of AI” is already the most popular computer science course in the world, according to Class Central, a free online course aggregator, and surpasses the online courses of educational superstars such as Stanford, Harvard and MIT.

The course consists of six topics and 25 exercises and covers several critical features of advanced AI technologies, such as neutral networks, machine learning and implications for the future. An added attraction is that students can complete the course at their own pace, so they can study alongside their work.

The university invites everyone to learn about what AI really is (and isn’t), how AI will develop over the coming years, and if and how it will affect the nature of work and everyday life. Find more out here.
