Applied AI with DeepLearning, IBM Watson IoT Data Science Certificate

I’ve just (literally minutes ago) completed “Applied AI with DeepLearning, IBM Watson IoT Data Science Certificate”. It is a very well prepared course by IBM — mostly by the very nice people of the Munich Watson IoT Center 🙂 and also some important portions by Skymind, the awesome creators of DL4J —  delivered through Coursera.

The course covers a lot of ground in a very short time. Details get lost at this speed, so if you look for a deep understanding of AI, you will be happier with some of the offerings of academia. But if you look for a refresher or an update on industry trends, this course is for you. Even more so, if you are an industry practitioner with a software background, and need to come up to speed on AI.

Here is the link to the course. If you have more time, and look for a solid foundation, I recommend Andrew Ng’s “Machine Learning”. Of course there is nothing to stop you from taking both courses…
