Course 1

Mastering Cloud Computing for AI: How to Use Microsoft Azure

One in ten global enterprises use at least ten artificial intelligence (AI), including chatbots and process optimization, as well as fraud analysis. This course will help you become an expert in AI and machine-learning and increase your professional standing. This course will teach you the basics of Azure, Microsoft's powerful tool to build cloud-based machine learning applications. Learn about Azure's core services and pillars: security, privacy compliance, and trust. Amazon Web Services is the company's cloud platform provider. You will also learn the basics of Amazon Web Services. You will need to manage hardware and software in order to store data, stream video, and host a website. This is an unnecessary hurdle when you deliver an application to users. This problem can be solved by cloud computing.

This course will show you how businesses use these services to be more efficient and successful. You'll find out about the differences between the three core cloud computing models: infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS). These models are becoming more popular than standard IT software for businesses. This course will help you understand the fundamental principles behind chatbots and digital assistants like Siri and Alexa. These two technologies, AI and cloud computing, are making it possible to create intuitive, connected experiences. Microsoft has accredited this course

Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Are you ready to make your first steps in your career as an artificial intelligence professional? This self-paced course combines engaging lectures with hands-on activities to give you an overview of AI and the future of software solutions. It also demonstrates how AI can be applied to real-world applications.

AI can be used in smart apps to improve efficiency and enrich the lives of people. Machine learning can be used for predictive models of AI. You'll also learn how software can be used for processing, analysing, and extracting meaning from natural language. Chatbots are able to communicate via text and speech between humans as well as AI systems.

Machine learning is an AI application that allows computers to learn from their experience and make improvements automatically. As the foundation of AI, you will learn about all aspects of machine-learning computer algorithms. Learn how AI uses machine learning along with deep learning to solve real-world problems.

How does artificial intelligence work to build better conversational user interfaces (CUIs), and how is conversation-as-a-platform (CaaP) providing new ways to interact directly with companies, important data and key services? This course will show you how intelligent applications, also known as interaction bots or chatbots provide richer, more personal and more human-like experience.
