Andrew Ng launches ‘AI for Everyone,’ a new Coursera program aimed at business professionals

Ng’s new course is available through Coursera, appropriately, and launches on November 14. And while it’s open to anyone, it’s principally geared toward business professionals who want to “better understand AI” and how it can impact their business — that is to say, executives interested in learning to select AI projects that’ll yield a return.

“Artificial intelligence will transform every industry, just as electricity did 100 years ago,” Ng wrote in a forthcoming blog post, pointing to a study by the McKinsey Global Institute. AI will result in a 1.2 percent increase in gross domestic product growth (GDP) over the next 10 years, the researcher firm predicted this year, and help capture an additional 20-25 percent in net economic benefits — $13 trillion globally — in the next 12.
