Artificial Intelligence: Distinguishing Between Fact and Fiction

Huma Shah, Coventry University

Is artificial intelligence a reality or just marketing hype?

On this two-week course, you will have the opportunity to explore artificial intelligence, how it’s perceived today and the differences between the hype, marketing and reality of AI.

You will have the chance to examine Alan Turing’s scholarship following his codebreaking successes in World War II at Bletchley Park. You will also explore how John McCarthy coined the term ‘artificial intelligence (AI)’ and the current state of the art, including manufacturing and social robotics.

This course is for anyone interested in artificial intelligence in psychology, philosophy and child development.
