The Elements of AI
Reaktor & University of Helsinki (2018): The Elements of AI.
"The Elements of AI is a series of free online courses created by Reaktor and the University of Helsinki. We want to encourage as broad a group of people as possible to learn what AI is, what can (and can’t) be done with AI, and how to start creating AI methods. The courses combine theory with practical exercises and can be completed at your own pace."

Technical Requirements / Accessibility
"Introduction to AI: The course can be completed with a computer or a mobile device. We don’t recommend using the Internet Explorer browser - it works, but it sometimes struggles with displaying the course progress. Building AI: The Beginner exercises can be completed with a mobile device, too, but in order to complete the programming exercises in the Intermediate and Advanced level, you’ll need a computer. All the programming exercises can be done in the browser: there’s no need to install anything on the computer. The course does not work optimally on older iPad models, Internet Explorer or Safari browsers prior to version 12.x."
