AI is changing the world we live in and every new technology advance is based on the advances of machine learning. In this unit you will go beyond the algorithms and learn how to build, develop and deploy AI solutions. A core characteristic of AI is understanding how it differs from traditional software projects and the different tasks that are required throughout the software development lifecycle. Due to the inherently probabilistic nature of AI Solutions, practitioners need new tools and approaches to assist them in building robust solutions. In this unit you will learn how to manage challenges that arise when building AI Solutions and gain a deep understanding of how to overcome these challenges. Throughout the course you will learn how to plan for and design the core elements of an AI Solution and guided through the development from concept all the way through to a deployable artefact. These skills will prepare you for the workforce ensuring that you have a strong vocabulary for communicating efficiently with project stakeholders including research engineers, software engineers and project managers. At the conclusion of this unit you will be equipped to make strong contributions to the development of new AI technologies.
