Artificial Intelligence: The Revolution Is Here

General description

The course on artificial intelligence will be organized in the campus area of the famous multidisciplinary Aalto University of Helsinki, where science and art meet technology and business. We will focus on the applications of AI technology, but we will also briefly go deeper in how the technology (for an example computer vision) works.

The course will include valuable education, company visits and networking not forgetting the fun: you also get to explore our campus life, the Helsinki city and maybe even spot the northern lights. Our weekend adventure and our famous sauna crawling will welcome you to the the land of a thousand lakes (187,888, to be precise) and two million saunas. So what are you waiting for? Apply now to educate yourself on the most exiting technology of the decade, enjoy a sip of Minttu, relax in real Finnish wooden sauna and dip into the lake naked!
