Welcome to AI U

We aim to give everybody a conversational understanding of AI - how it works, its advantages and limitations in just 2 minutes a day for a month (and for free!)

Anyone can eat a burger and chips BUT that won't keep you fit and healthy. Just as a basic understanding of nutrition is essential for health, a basic understanding of AI is essential for modern life.

Anyone can be a technology user, but being a user runs the risk of you being used. A little knowledge of how the technology works can prevent you from being taken advantage of and also give you a competitive advantage over others. A good analogy would be checking the tyre pressures on your car. You can drive the car without doing so, but your grip, braking distance and fuel economy could be affected. A 2 minute job could prevent an accident and save you money. That's what we are trying to achieve with AIU.

Most explanations of Machine Learning are either too mathematical or too simplistic, our goal is to tread the middle ground. Our cartoon-style sketch approach keeps it simple and appealing. It encourages you to show and share it with others - which we encouage - as this starts informed conversations on AI, rather than repeating the marketing, hype or fear. Developing and growing your own informed knowledge network allows you to learn together with others and their insights. The 30 day course is free - our mission is to educate as many as possible on Machine Learning.
...and introduce a new pedagogy of viral learning underpinned by motivational design.

The 30 cartoons give a birds-eye overview of AI and Machine Learning, making it a perfect starting point for finding out more.
If you Sign Up one cartoon will be sent to you every day for a month, so you have time to read, share and discuss them with others. We encourage you to share and discuss the cartoons, because that will help you learn more, get greater insight and keep your knowledge up-to-date. AI and Machine Learning is a fast-developing field, so by talking to others, and building a knowledge network you have more chance of hearing the latest developments and applications.

Build your own learning community and that network and conversations will be more effective than taking a one-off hour long course by yourself.

Companies and Organisations

Machine Learning can give a competitive advantage for organisations. It can save time, costs and give greater insight. However, the greatest advantages come not from deploying off-the-shelf AI toolsuites and hiring consultants, as anyone else can do the same. real advantages come from those who know your business, your customers and your data - which is your team. This course is ideal for reassuring staff and inspiring a bottom-up digital transformation. The Viral learning approach creates a critical mass of connected-conversations that drive action and deliver results.
