Module 1: Understanding AI Fundamentals


In this learning course, we unravel the intricacies of AI, demystifying the algorithms that govern its decision-making processes. More importantly, we delve into the crucial concept of trustworthiness – an essential pillar that ensures AI serves humanity responsibly. 

In Module 1, we cover the following Lessons:

Lesson 1.1: What is Artificial Intelligence?

Lesson 1.2: The Role of AI in Society

Lesson 1.3: The Scope of Trustworthy AI

Lesson 1.4: The Importance of Ethical AI


In the initial lesson, we will acquaint ourselves with the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI), examining a range of examples and seeing where it’s used. Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to the development of computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. These tasks encompass learning, reasoning, problem-solving, perception, and language understanding. AI systems often utilize machine learning algorithms, enabling them to adapt and improve their performance over time as they process and analyze data. Applications of AI range from virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa to complex tasks such as image recognition, natural language processing, and strategic decision-making in various industries. The ultimate goal of AI is to create machines that can simulate human intelligence and perform tasks autonomously.
