Course Description This course takes a deep dive into the world of blockchain, AI, and machine learning. We open the hood and look inside blockchain to see what it is, how it has evolved, and where it is headed. We then explore artificial intelligence and machine learning and seek to understand the philosophical and ethical issues, relationship with consciousness and self-awareness, the categories and applications of the different families of AI algorithms, and what challenges and opportunities lie in the future. Students are encouraged to think about the impact of these technologies on society and how they themselves might become leaders and shapers in these fields. The course includes asynchronous work, which students are expected to complete between class sessions. Light team-based coding in Python helps elucidate and make concrete ideas around blockchain and artificial intelligence. No prior coding experience is required, however.
