Online education provider Udacity said today it's launching a nanodegree program to teach product managers how to create AI-powered products. The nontechnical course will also teach product managers how to identify business opportunities with AI or machine learning. Enrollment for the first program begins today and consists of 6 lessons and 3 projects, and lasts about 2 months. "Students will start off by learning the foundations of AI and machine learning, starting with the unsupervised and supervised models that are used in industry today," Udacity founder Sebastian Thrun told VentureBeat in an email. "As a next step, they will learn how to use Figure Eight's data annotation platform to develop a labeled dataset for supervised learning. Finally, students will develop a business proposal for an AI product of their choice, while learning strategies for continuously learning and updating a machine learning model."
