“The topics are comprehensively covered. Reading materials given are relevant and useful in providing better understanding and gaining more insights to AI. However, I felt that the training hours accorded to this course should be more than 12 training hours. We have 18 modules altogether. Each module would take about 1 hour or slightly more to complete as it comprises of (i) video lecture (12-13 mins), (ii) reading materials (15 mins or more), (iii) interview from guest speaker (12-13 mins) and quiz (10 -12 mins). 18 hours should be considered reasonable.”
