Courses are interactive; experts guide students through the process and hands-on exercises. Some courses include challenges with step-by-step instructions and access to pre-configured environments.

Some students ask about prerequisite skills. We advise that a basic understanding of data management and programming languages like Python, R Programming, Java and C++ is helpful. Our AI and ML technical instructors also say many are drawn to AI through their knack for numbers: mathematics, statistics, calculus, probability and linear algebra.

But apart from Computer Science and Mathematics, the discipline also requires knowledge of how people behave, communicate and interact with systems. So, people from all fields have a chance of getting into AI, bringing something to the table and helping shape future governance and learning pathways.
