Editor’s note:Note that this is an actively-growing collection of courses, and that you can contribute to the repository by simply opening a pull request.

A curated list of awesome, free machine learning and artificial intelligence courses with video lectures. All courses are available as high-quality video lectures by some of the best AI researchers and teachers on this planet.

Besides the video lectures, I linked course websites with lecture notes, additional readings and assignments.

### Introductory Lectures

These are great courses to get started in machine learning and AI. No prior experience in ML and AI is needed. You should have some knowledge of linear algebra, introductory calculus and probability. Some programming experience is also recommended.

- Machine Learning (Stanford CS229) | Course website
This modern classic of machine learning courses is a great starting point to understand the concepts and techniques of machine learning. The course covers many widely used techniques, The lecture notes are detailed and review necessary mathematical concepts.

- Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition (Stanford CS231n) | Course website
A great way to start with deep learning. The course focuses on convolutional neural networks and computer vision, but also gives an overview on recurrent networks and reinforcement learning.

- Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (UC Berkeley CS188) | Course website
Covers the whole field of AI. From search methods, game trees and machine learning to Bayesian networks and reinforcement learning.

- Applied Machine Learning 2020 (Columbia)
Alternative to Stanford CS229. As the name implies, this course takes a more applied perspective than Andrew Ng’s machine learning lecture at Stanford. You will see more code than mathematics. Concepts and algorithms are using the popular Python libraries scikit-learn and Keras.

- Introduction to Reinforcement learning with David Silver (DeepMind) | Course website
Introduction to reinforcement learning by one of the leading researchers behind AlphaGo and AlphaZero.

- Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning (Stanford CS224N) | Course website
Modern NLP techniques from recurrent neural networks and word embeddings to transformers and self-attention. Covers applied topics like questions answering and text generation.
