Artificial intelligence (AI) has exploded over the news, provoking great optimism, pessimism, and confusion. In this course, we will cover the history of AI through recent developments including self-driving cars, get a useful understanding of just what AI is - and is not - and explore the positions of figures from Elon Musk to Ray Kurzweil. We will review studies to see which jobs will be most affected, and how to protect careers.
