TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS “THE MIND” AND WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
Very interesting course with a basic level. Topics are addressed in a very general way. Topics are of philosophical importance and motivates you to think more about them.
This was a lot of fun and just the right amount of challenging at the end!
Really good course. Absolutely loved it! The last week's content was difficult to understand. But overall, it was an insightful journey. Definately recommend it :)
This course has been extremely enlightening. Big thanks to Coursera and the University of Colorado, Boulder!
