Easiest course I've taken at UF. Didn't learn much though.
Basically, a first foray into CS and AI for non-technical people. Not a great starting point for a CS major or someone with programming experience.

So fun and interesting. It's soo easy but you actually learn a lot if you pay attention and don't BS things. You need absolutely no coding or AI experience. There's one big project that you do in separate parts, and it's all tutorial-based. I remember a few quizzes, but they were entirely based on lectures and not too bad. Assignments didn't take long at all. There wasn't a final either.
Teaches you the basics of AI as well as the ethical aspects of it and how we can use AI in the real world. No actual programming was done.
One of the best professors I've ever had. He cares way more about his students learning the material and enjoying it than grades or deadlines. A lot of due dates got extended, and we always had plenty of time to complete things.
