The CyCAT research project through the Open University of Cyprus aspires to make knowledge about Artificial Intelligence accessible to all. So it takes the initiative to offer a free online course that teaches basic knowledge about Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). The course is addressed to the general public and specifically to those who are interested in learning and understanding the basics of A.I. and its applications/systems that they use daily. The course aims to acquire basic knowledge and to understand basic applications and systems of A.I. that we use – even unconsciously – every day.
The course is offered in Greek and is consisted of 8 synchronous online lectures. The course starts on October 6, 2021, and will take place every Wednesday between 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., with the last lecture on November 24, 2021. Course instructors are dr. Jahna Otterbacher, coordinator of CyCAT, and the researchers at CyCAT dr. Styliani Kleanthous and dr. Kalia Orphanou.
The course is divided into seven units:
- Introduction to the course
- Introduction to A.I. application
- Computer Vision – Face Recognition
- Natural Language Processing (NLP)
- Ethical issues
- Living with A.I.
