  • Artificial Intelligence Workshops - Expert Systems for the Masses
  • Fee: $10.00
    Dates: 4/17/2024 - 4/17/2024
    Times: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    Instructor: Charles West
    Expert Systems have been in use for decades in many varied fields. They are used to taking existing knowledge to solve complex problems by using an IF, THEN set of rules. These systems emulate how individuals think and make decisions. They are used extensively in the field of medicine. Through this class you will learn how Expert Systems are created, their strengths, and their weaknesses. You will learn the nomenclature, such as forward chaining and backward chaining, so you will be able to communicate with those creating systems that surround us. This class is designed to assist you in developing an appreciation for creating the inference engines and knowledge bases used in implementing the systems. Together we will develop a simple expert system. No prior programming knowledge is required. All you need to bring to class is the desire to expand your knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
 

  • Artificial Intelligence Workshops - Neural Networks
  • Fee: $10.00
    Dates: 5/1/2024 - 5/1/2024
    Times: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    Days: W
    Sessions: 1
    Building: Peoria Campus
    Room: Hickory Hall 103
    Instructor: Charles West

    Neural Networks are the underpinnings of many of the Artificial Intelligence disciplines. They are a subset of machine learning and deep learning. These systems emulate the way the human brain works and learns. Ever wonder how a computer can decipher handwriting or pick a dog out of a plethora of animal pictures? Through what you learn in this class you will understand how they are trained, what they can do, and how they are made more accurate. After this class you will be able to communicate with others in the field and develop an understanding and appreciation of what these systems can do to resolve complex problems. The next time you listen to a newscaster talking about perceptrons or supervised learning or unsupervised learning, you will be able to better understand what they are talking about.

 

  • Artificial Intelligence Workshops - The Reality of its Impact
  • Fee: $10.00

    Dr. Charles West will share how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the face of technology, business, education, and home life. AI impacts millions of lives now and many millions more in the not-so-distant future. Some jobs will be lost, while new jobs will be created. Lives will be made easier as we will live longer with AI augmentation. You will not want to miss exploring the impact AI innovations have on society now and what exciting possibilities lie ahead.
 

  • Artificial Intelligence Workshops - Deep Learning
  • Fee: $10.00
    Dates: 5/13/2024 - 5/13/2024
    Times: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    Building: Peoria Campus
    Room: Hickory Hall 103
    Instructor: Charles West
    Dr. Chuck West will take you through a journey into the world of one of the most powerful uses of Artificial Intelligence, that being, deep learning. Deep learning is a subset of machine learning which is a part of Artificial Intelligence umbrella. Upon completion of this class, you will understand how massive amounts of unstructured data are converted to useful knowledge that can be applied to such fields as customer support, medical care and diagnosis, and self-driving vehicles. You will learn about the basic concepts of neural networks, the time to train them and their limitations. The student does not need a background in A.I., computer software, or any programming skills. This class is intended for individuals that want a conceptual understanding of the general idea of deep learning and how it can be applied.
