Starting November 13, 2017!
Course and registration information


Course Description:

Human-computer interaction (HCI) integrates aspects of computer science, psychology, and design to study the nature of interaction between humans and computers. Each of these disciplines possess a rich history of theory and research, which, in their combination, have contributed to the equally rich and evolving field of HCI.

The Human-Computer Interaction for User Experience Design online short course from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will provide you with access to some of the most cutting-edge research in the field, from MIT CSAIL top faculty.

Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Business Strategy

Starting November 20, 2017!

Course and registration information

Course Description:

What is artificial intelligence (AI)?  What does it mean for business?  And how can your company take advantage of it?  This online program, designed by the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will help you answer these questions.

Focusing on key AI technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics, the course will help you understand the implications of these new technologies for business strategy, as well as the economic and societal issues they raise.  MIT expert instructors examine how artificial intelligence will complement and strengthen our workforce rather than just eliminate jobs. Additionally, the program will emphasize how the collective intelligence of people and computers together can solve business problems that not long ago were considered impossible.
