While full artificial intelligence is still far in the future, the latest machine-learning algorithms are making progress on problems that we previously thought were the unique domain of humans—tasks like speech and object recognition. In a hands-on tutorial, Angie Ma explores what’s possible (and not) with machine learning and what that means for businesses. You’ll gain experience with cutting-edge artificial intelligence by building your very own handwriting recognition engine. This will be placed in the wider context of what it means for businesses, so you can understand what is (and is not) currently possible with algorithms, and how these are translated to the real world and business value. If you are an executive, product manager, business leader, or user, Angie will help you lead innovative machine-learning projects more effectively.
