Elements of AI

Elements of AI is an online course that provides easy-to-understand information and practical examples on the topic of artificial intelligence. The University of Helsinki and a Finnish learning company MinnaLearn launched the course in 2018 with a mission to educate one percent of the Finnish population about the basics of artificial intelligence. Due to high demand, the course was quickly translated into several other languages and has now become a global success with over one million participants worldwide.
