From voice-powered assistants such as Siri and Alexa to subtle behavior algorithms, artificial intelligence technology is affecting how people live, work and entertain today.
McHenry County College is offering an artificial intelligence class (ROB 220) beginning in August. The class will be from 5:30 to 9:50 p.m. Aug. 23 through Oct. 11 in Room D154.
“We interact with intelligent systems and services in various forms, including apps on our phones, websites, intelligent devices and much more,” robotics instructor Jack Brzezinski said. “AI is the future of computing, and soon will cause big changes in the economy. He said many jobs will change because of automated systems.
Although this class is new to MCC, AI has been part of Brzezinski’s career for many years. He has conducted extensive research and completed his doctorate dissertation on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Brzezinski has taught programming and robotics at MCC for 10 years.
MCC’s artificial intelligence course, which is part of the robotics degree program, will provide a broad understanding of the basic techniques for building intelligent computer systems and an understanding of how AI is applied to problems.
