In a move to democratize artificial intelligence (AI), Coursera co-founder and AI expert Andrew Ng announced an “AI for Everyone” program for nontechnical business leaders, coming to the online learning platform in early 2019.¬†¬†Engineers and data scientists might handle the technical details of AI, but business leaders also need to understand application opportunities for machine learning and deep learning in their organizations, as well as what the technology can’t do, Ng wrote in the announcement. The course will help nontechnical leaders build “a sustainable AI strategy” and serve as a resource for technical employees to suggest to managers to promote understanding of the technology. Domain experts and engineers are critical to harnessing the potential of AI. But the industry also needs millions of business leaders, managers, sales and marketing professionals, financiers and designers that can apply AI in their communities and businesses, Ng said.
