About the Selected Topics in Artificial Intelligence Program

Note: During this trying time, UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your goals. Because this program is in an entirely online format, no changes have been necessary. Our classes will continue to run as scheduled.

Certify Your Expertise in Artificial Intelligence

In the last three years applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have increased exponentially thanks to the increase in the processing power of supercomputers, and with the development of tools necessary to create AI algorithms.

Examples of applications of AI are for instance rapid translation of texts from any language to any another language (this is covered in the "Natural Language Processing", course that is part of this certificate), as well as drug repurposing where machine learning algorithms discover potential new applications of existing medications.

Following our extremely successful certificate “Machine Learning Methods” that introduced necessary tools to understand and create machine learning algorithms our specialized certificate “Selected Topics in Artificial Intelligence” is a 9 unit specialized certificate and will start in January 2022. It will introduce concepts that allow machine learning i.e. artificial intelligence practitioners to exploit to full extent the capabilities of the machine learning world.
