AI Literacy

This course is designed to equip students with a fundamental understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications in various fields. Students will explore the exciting world of AI, its potential benefits, and the ethical considerations surrounding its use. The course will begin by considering how AI works, then look at its impact and potential across a range of sectors. We will then explore the debates around bias, privacy, cheating and deepfakes, and finish by examining the future of AI and how and whether it can be harnessed for good.
