So do Coursera, Udacity, EdX, Apple, and (I assume) MIT.

I would say that we need a new AI course like we need a new Javascript framework, but education is different. Different people learn in different ways and it might be useful to have different courses.

I wish we could compare all the courses in some kind of overview to see what they do, how they compare, and how well people learn from them.

It's actually likely pretty high up there.

hey want to make Finland the world's most educated country in the field of artificial intelligence

The way to do this is almost certainly to make it the world's most educated country in the field of linear algebra first!

exactly! This course is made for non-technical people. We are planning to do a followup course later on with programming skills required. (I'm a member of the Elements of AI team)

Keep us posted. But this looks good. I think it is important for tech people to know what is the level out there.

It's a great initiative regardless of depth. I love seeing Finland mentioned here :)

This looks like a high level "What is AI" 'course'. Not really practical except for the manager or generalist trying to understand what AI is.

Wow, this is awesome. This is a great way to help everyone take a step forward into the future. The public having a larger understanding of AI will be extremely important as it becomes a larger part of our lives.

I'm always a fan of free educational tools, especially ones that cross traditional borders.

There was a strong interest within our company about this course (I work in an agency in Helsinki). I'm curious if the authors of the course would be willing to share some stats with me: how many people are actively participating vs saying they will (for anyone with @companyname.fi emails). If it's possible, could some of the authors get in touch via my profile :)

If you take the course, begin with the Finish in mind.
