What you'll learn

  • Explore a reference architecture for artificial intelligence systems


Implementing artificial intelligence applications in the real world involves more than deep learning. In fact, systems are often hybrid, clever combinations of sensors and measurements, specialized algorithms, and some heavy machine learning component.

Mikio Braun looks back on the past 20 years of machine learning research to explore aspects of artificial intelligence. He then turns to current examples like autonomous cars and chatbots, putting together a mental model for a reference architecture for artificial intelligence systems.
