Helpful AI Courses for 2021


Artificial Intelligence is one of the top new skills to learn and apply. Some experts suggest that we will rewrite the majority of applications to include components of artificial intelligence in the coming years.

We have more platforms for learning and practical labs than ever before. Given these “MOOC” platforms have been available for a number of years, it is sometimes difficult to find appropriate content that is not “marchitecture.”

According to Kaggle’s 2020 “State of Data Science and Machine Learning Survey”, 63% of data scientists look to Coursera for ongoing education, while 35% use Udemy and 30% use DataCamp.

I wanted to share my favorite and meaty forums to learn, apply, and practice AI.
