In this course presented by FutureLearn, you will learn the history of artificial intelligence, beginning with the work of Alan Turing and John McCarthy. With a comprehensive review of artificial intelligence scholarship and research, the course examines various machine learning techniques and explores parallels between human, animal, and computer intelligence.
