Google has made its in-house AI training programme available online, meaning tech students and “curious cats” can access it from anywhere in the world.

Google announced its Machine Learning Crash Course will be offered for free online after realising its content may be useful for learners outside Google’s own training scheme.

Online education has the power to educate students in locations which have traditionally been cut off from groundbreaking research and contemporary changes.

But now any student with Internet access can discover the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it can be used to solve real problems through the Learn with Google AI website.

“To help everyone understand how AI can solve challenging problems, we’ve created a resource called Learn with Google AI. This site provides ways to learn about core ML [machine learning] concepts, develop and hone your ML skills, and apply ML to real-world problems,” Google’s technical programme manager Zuri Kemp said in the announcement blog post.

“From deep learning experts looking for advanced tutorials and materials on TensorFlow, to “curious cats” who want to take their first steps with AI, anyone looking for educational content from ML experts at Google can find it here.”

The platform is aimed at anyone interested in AI – from the Computer Science PhD student to the History undergraduate who is wondering whether AI will, in fact, destroy humanity.

Students can learn about basic to advanced AI and Machine Learning applications from videos, blog posts and tutorials for free.
