 MARCH 2018

Cybersecurity: Technology, Application and Policy
Starting March 6, 2018 | Course registration

Course Description: By examining security challenges in hardware, software and cryptography, this program will introduce the latest research that can help organizations move from 'patch and pray' defenses to security 'by deafult'. This course will also use case studies to illustrate the impact of the emerging technologies and look at policy implications impacting the field. The program will be taught by a team of world-renowned MIT CSAIL experts.

Internet of Things: Roadmap to a Connected World
Starting March 6, 2018 | Course registration

Course Description: By 2020, there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. How will you and your organization capitalize on this tremendous opportunity? Join this new evolution in hardware, software, and data by registering for this six-week online offering. MIT Professional Education’s new Internet of Things: Roadmap to the Connected World course offers important insights on how to overcome these challenges and thrive in this exciting space.

APRIL 2018

Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Business Strategy
Starting April 4, 2018 | Course registration

Course Description: What is artificial intelligence (AI)?  What does it mean for business?  And how can your company take advantage of it?  This online program, designed by the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will help you answer these questions. Focusing on key AI technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, and robotics, the course will help you understand the implications of these new technologies for business strategy, as well as the economic and societal issues they raise.  MIT expert instructors examine how artificial intelligence will complement and strengthen our workforce rather than just eliminate jobs. Additionally, the program will emphasize how the collective intelligence of people and computers together can solve business problems that not long ago were considered impossible.

Coding Chemistry: Advancing Sustainable Agriculture
A BASF Hackathon | Ray and Maria Stata Center
April 7-8, 2018 | Registration link

As the world’s population grows, farmers need to produce more food on the same amount of land. Farming is the biggest job on earth - this is why BASF is committed to be part of the movement to foster sustainable agriculture.

Bring your image analysis and data science skills to our two day event where you will build an algorithm which distinguishes weeds from crops.

At the end of the weekend the top two teams will win $1,000 and be given 30 days to advance their solutions. The teams will then virtually present their results to BASF and the team with the most accurate results will win $5,000.

MAY 2018

Human-Computer Interaction User Experience Design
Starting May 2, 2018! | Course registration

Course Description: Human-computer interaction (HCI) integrates aspects of computer science, psychology, and design to study the nature of interaction between humans and computers. Each of these disciplines possess a rich history of theory and research, which, in their combination, have contributed to the equally rich and evolving field of HCI. The Human-Computer Interaction for User Experience Design online short course from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), will provide you with access to some of the most cutting-edge research in the field, from MIT CSAIL top faculty.
