Hi @Jiratchaya_Ninsuay

Welcome to the community.

I’m sorry. I am not entirely sure if I got it right.

Could you provide a bit more information regarding your question to ensure my better understanding, so that I can assist you more effectively?

Best regards

Hi Jiratchaya,
Thanks for this question!
All courses help learn and improve in the area of ML, thanks to which it is easier to get recognised later on when looking for a new job!
I believe you’re referring to Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence (MSAI), aren’t you? Which university would you like to do it at? Let me know.

Hello everyone , indeed th course is in need of some changes in light of the tremendous developments the field. But courses take a while to be prepared as they have to be tested in multiple rounds thus the information could be a bit predated.

Hi Yokesh. Thank you for posting the slide. I took this example, created a prompt for ChatGPT using my free account and it responded a well written, empathetic reply that was paragraphs long. ChatGPT is built on top of a Large Language Model (LLM) which according to this article in Computer World magazine’s site, is machine learning.

My ChatGPT prompt:
I run an online toy store. A customer called our support line and said, “The toy arrived two days late, so I wasn’t able to give it to my niece for her birthday. Can I return it?” Please write an empathetic response to the customer.

ChatGPT’s response:

Agree 100% that this should be corrected asap. This is an introduction course to AI and then it immediately tells the viewer what AI cannot do when it currently can do all the examples it gives.

I understand that Machine Learning outside of Deep Learning would most likely not be able to do these things but Mr. Ng repeatedly refers to “AI” not being able to accomplish these things, when he should be specifying Machine Learning with a mention that Deep Learning can indeed do these things now.

It sounds like a small thing, but for people who are completely new to AI, this sends confusing and false narrative.

Thank you for reading and I hope to see updates soon.


Totally agree, just realized it by watching today (Oct 2023) the whole LLM development (chatGPT, Bing, Bard) is missing


Totally agree. I keep trying to picture Mr Ng’s face when he first tried Chat GPT. He really kept emphasising all the things Deep Learning wasn’t able to do, so I’m sure his mind was blown when he tried it out. lol.
