The Duke Difference: AI and Machine Learning

What is AI for Product Innovation?

  • Artificial Intelligence is computer programming designed to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities of the human mind
  • Machine Learning is a subset of AI in which a computer learns from past data without programming that explicitly

Duke's AI for Product Innovation program creates graduates who can use the powerful tools of AI and machine learning to solve challenging problems in the creation of products and services.
