670 Free Online Programming & Computer Science Courses You Can Start in December

#artificialintelligence

I've sorted these courses into the following categories based on their difficulty level: Courses that are being offered for the first time are marked as [NEW]. Many of these courses are completely self-paced. The rest will start at various times later in December. You can find complete lists of the technology-related courses starting later in 2018 on Class Central's Computer Science, Data Science, and Programming subject pages. I understand this a long list and might be daunting for learners new to programming.

Software predicts the lifespans of machines by 'cloning' them

Engadget

In some cases, machine breakdowns are more than just inconveniences -- in the military, they can spell disaster on the battlefield. Software is quickly eliminating those rude surprises, however. NASA spinoff Sentient Science has been offering DigitalClone, a software tool that predicts failures by'cloning' parts. It uses an understanding of the physics of a given part, such as friction and wear, to determine when that gear is likely to break. The clone is uncannily accurate (Sentient Science has sensors to confirm its data), making it easy to extend the lifespan of a device by replacing parts before there's a crisis.


The most in-demand data science skills you need

#artificialintelligence

The most sought-after data scientists not only know how to use the technology but when to use it and why, experts say. That requires an understanding of the business benefits of the data, as well as the ability to communicate these benefits to executives and colleagues in other areas of the company. "I've seen a lot of data scientists have a good understanding of the models and not have any business impact," said Andrew Fast, chief data scientist at CounterFlow Inc., a cybersecurity company based in Charlottesville, Va. To address the issue, some professionals are zeroing in on specific use cases. "We see that the market is getting more specialized," Fast said.
