The course was developed by the University of Helsinki in partnership with the technology company, Reaktor Education and was funded by the Finnish Government. Thanks to the European Commission, the course will be available in all EU languages by 2021.
The Romanian-American University is proud to represent Romania’s education sector in this partnership and encourage every student in the country to access the course and thus, upscale their skills before entering a rapidly-evolving labor market”, said Justina Lavinia Stănică, Lecturer PhD. within the Romanian-American University.
“Furthermore, Elements of AI explains the implications of AI in real everyday situations with interactive exercises, so that students can make informed decisions […].”
Comprising six sections, the course sheds light on various aspects of AI, including definitions, neural networks, machine learning and societal implications. Each part should take from 5 to 10 hours to complete.
The course does not require any programming skills, and anyone can access it both in English as well as in the local Romanian language.
Elements of AI Romania will be officially launched in the evening of December 8, during the Pitch & Demo Day, the closing event of #BeAI, Europe’s AI pre-accelerator.
