Sample Artificial Intelligence Modules

To see how the Online Insights programme is structured, please view the timetable.
  • Module 1 - Ethics of AI

    This module will discuss the ethical questions that are currently debated with the rise of AI and its growing reliance in the modern world. Will AI replace human workers? Will it spread or help tackle the rise of fake news and misinformation? Put your scholar's hat on to debate the hottest topics of the century.
  • Module 2 - Applications of AI

    Learn the implications and applications of AI in different industries, from medicine to the social sciences and humanities. Which industries benefited most and what new jobs has AI created - all of this you will find out in this module.
  • Module 3 - AI and Machine Learning

    You will explore the fascinating history of AI research and the initial experiments that seemed promising but ultimately turned out to be dead ends. Then, you’ll turn to the probabilistic basis of machine learning and neural networks, demystifying this arcane-sounding technique and its many variations.
  • Module 4 - AI and Gamification

    In the 1990’s IBM successfully defeated chess grandmaster Gary Kasperov, a feat that shocked the world. IBM’s machine, deep blue employed artificial intelligence to defeat Kasperov. But what is artificial intelligence? What does it mean to be rational? And how does this tie in with playing games? Further, why do we need artificial intelligence, and what does it provide us with? A commonly misunderstood question. In this topic, you will consider algorithms such as MiniMax, simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, and monte carlo methods, and how they can be used for optimisation problems.
