DiploFoundation’s new course Artificial Intelligence: Technology, Governance, and Policy Frameworks provided 26 students with in-depth knowledge to enable them to assess critically the consequences of artificial intelligence (AI) and understand the opportunities and challenges it creates across a broad spectrum of areas. Conceived in particular for policy-makers and diplomats, the course covers technical topics like big data, machine learning, neural networks, and deep learning in an easy-to-understand way, to support decision-makers. In addition, the course introduces the implications of AI in fields such as security, human rights, and development.
Due to high demand, the course will be back in October with added supplementary material, as confirmed by course lecturers Dr Katharina Höne and Ms Marília Maciel.
