CS50’s Introduction to Artificial Intelligence with Python
This course explores the concepts and algorithms at the foundation of modern artificial intelligence.
Through hands-on projects, students will learn the graph search algorithms, classification, optimization, reinforcement learning, and many other topics in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
CS50’s Mobile App Development with React Native
Through hands-on projects, students will gain experience with React and its paradigms, app architecture, and user interfaces.
Using Python for Research
This course aims to bridge the gap between introductory and advanced courses in Python.
After reviewing the basics of Python 3, students will learn about tools commonly used in research settings.
Students will also get to practice their newly acquired Python skills with various case studies selected for their scientific breadth and coverage of a number of Python features.
Data Science: R Basics
This course introduces students to the basics of R programming.
Over this course, students will learn R’s functions and data types, vectors, and advanced functions like sorting.
They will also apply general programming features like “if-else,” and “for loop” commands, and will learn how to wrangle, analyze, and visualize data.
