Artificial neural networks are the building blocks of AI. The course investigates and compares human neural network with 
artificial neural networks. The human brain is trained to solve problems by attempting them. Similarly, AI makes use of deep learning and machine learning, while trying to resolve an issue logically in its own programming language. 

Learn how AI is used by businesses in marketing and customer relations. For example, AI can observe a customer’s online shopping patterns and make recommendations. The company can target market their products. Customers receive specific information, and can choose the best option.

AI can be seen in industries such as horticulture and agriculture (e.g. for precision pest control), transport and logistics industry (e.g. implementing self-driven vehicles), healthcare sector (e.g. customising patient's treatment delivery). Education, leisure, environment are some other industry sectors that make use of AI. 

AI is everywhere!
