"Artificial intelligence is the new electricity."

- Andrew Ng, Stanford Adjunct Professor 

Take advantage of the opportunity to virtually step into the classrooms of Stanford professors like Andrew Ng who are leading the Artificial Intelligence revolution. 

Classes in the Artificial Intelligence Graduate Certificate provide the foundation and advanced skills in the principles and technologies that underlie AI including logic, knowledge representation, probabilistic models, and machine learning.  Students can pursue topics in depth, with courses available in areas such as robotics, vision, and natural language processing.

New from Stanford: NLP with Deep Learning, a not-for-credit, professional course based on CS224N: Natural Language Processing.

Recommended Courses

Prepare for advanced Artificial Intelligence curriculum and earn graduate credit by taking these recommended courses; these courses will not count towards the Artificial Intelligence graduate certificate. We highly recommend taking CS109 Introduction to Probability for Computer Scientists, or STATS116 Theory of Probability.
