The AI course offers a brief overview of key concepts. Some videos feel rushed, focusing more on tool names than substantive learning. It's a decent starting point but lacks depth on specific tools.

La inteligencia artificial generativa es fascinante. La capacidad de crear contenido nuevo e innovador a partir de datos existentes es una prueba del potencial creativo de las máquinas. Los conceptos básicos de ingeniería de instrucciones son fundamentales para comprender cómo diseñar y entrenar modelos que puedan generar contenido de manera efectiva y coherente. Es como enseñarle a una máquina a pintar o componer música, pero en lugar de pinceles o instrumentos, se utilizan algoritmos y datos. Esta disciplina no solo abre nuevas posibilidades en campos como el arte y el entretenimiento, sino que también tiene aplicaciones prácticas en la generación de contenido personalizado, como recomendaciones de productos o la creación de contenido automatizado para empresas. Sin embargo, también plantea desafíos éticos y sociales, como la autenticidad y la propiedad intelectual del contenido generado por IA. En general, creo que la IA generativa es un campo emocionante con un potencial enorme, pero es importante abordarlo con responsabilidad y consideración hacia sus implicaciones.

First of all, the course is well made. it is a focused course with very nice hands on labs. the order of the course is good. it's hard to keep up to date with the fast pace of AI models development. the course is up to date even if sometimes there is undated software or the outcome in the lab is not exactly what the course would have wanted. i loved the course.
