The topic of artificial intelligence has become a global phenomenon in recent months. No wonder that with the rapid growth of technology, there is a shortage of skilled workers.
But OpenAI and Deep Learning.AI want to do something about it. The two companies have started a cooperation and launched a (temporarily) free online course on artificial intelligence. Switching again could be worth it.
The course, titled “ChatGPT Prompt Engineering for Developers,” aims to equip participants with the necessary skills to use the language models GPT-3.5 und GPT-4 to be integrated into the development of applications.
Not only will it explain how these language models work, but also their application in various fields, including text summarization and transformation, information derivation, and idea generation.
Participants will also learn about the key principles of Creation of effective prompts informed and learn how to build custom chatbots based on Large Language Models (LLMs).
DeepLearning.AI co-founder Andrew Ng emphasizes that generative AI offers many opportunities and allows AI engineers to within minutes or hours to develop powerful applications for them earlier days or weeks would have needed.
In addition to Andrew Ng, Isabella Fulford from the OpenAI technical team also teaches.

Clearly: “no«. OpenAI and DeepLearning.AI have indicated that basic knowledge of the Python programming language is required. So you have to be able to program to be able to follow the course.
However, Python is considered a beginner-friendly programming language that offers many possibilities despite high error tolerance (via learnprogramming.com). So if you want to learn Python beforehand and you are interested in AI, the course could be the right one for you.
It might be worth it for you
According to a New York Times report, there are only 10,000 AI experts in the world. This scarcity is said to ensure that they will allegedly earn $300,000 to $500,000 after just a few years.
Salary.de reports that an AI developer in Germany earns an average of almost 63,000 euros. The assumption is that this number will increase in the future – although there is of course no guarantee of this.
What about with you? Is the course interesting for you? Will you get into the AI business? Are you just starting to program or do you intend to? Are you just switching to Python now, or is that your programming language of choice anyway? As always, let us know your thoughts and experiences in the comments!
