by Pat completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
The overall and weekly course objectives were stated clearly, much more clearly than many other courses I have explored.

The course had lots of reading, including extra links to other pages. There were no videos. Each chapter’s material consisted of three pages, but they were long pages full of comprehensive information. It was an excellent introduction to just what AI is and the implications in today's society of the many applications of AI both now and into the future. The assessments were unforgiving, with only one attempt available for most questions. I made basic mistakes in some answers but managed to pass the course quite comfortably.

I found the course surprisingly interesting!

I did not find the reading and the exercises well balanced. Reading was fun, the goal and focus of the exercises not so. For someone having studied some maths and computer science - just read the text or take another class; you’ll get frustrated with the vague definitions used in the exercises.

I finished the course just to improve the statistics of the course itself ;)

(Thumbs up for the effort of preparing the course, with still a bit more effort it will be a good one)

The course was inspiring and fun to take; still it taught me efficiently the main elements of AI. As a professional not related to technology at all (medical doctor) I found the course comprehensible. I recommend this course to anyone interested in AI, regardless of educational background.

I recommend this course to everyone! It gives a good view to the current state of the AI. The tasks are not always easy to solve but they give a good challenge and motivate to read the theory well.
