Book- AI without Jargon

A course on Artificial Intelligence for non-technical “curious” professionals to help them understand the world of AI without knowing Coding, Maths & Statistics

Who is this book for?

This book is for full-time professionals, freelancers and entrepreneurs who are curious and want to gain functional knowledge about AI.

This knowledge can help them in getting a new job in an AI company, or getting a promotion within the organisation or starting a business/ income source.

Why do we need this book?

If we want to learn AI today, all the existing content is focused on Technical people (developers, coders, etc.)

The pre-requisite is that we should know Mathematics, Statistics and Coding.

And In case we don’t want to spend time learning or revising these concepts, it would be slightly difficult to sit through the initial lectures.

So, I decided to write a book that is more focused on non-technical professionals like me.

The idea is to simplify AI concepts and explain them without Jargon, Coding, Maths and Stats

Here is how I learned AI as a non-technical person in 4 months for free

Why should I take courses from AI ML etc?

I am on a mission to increase the speed of learning AI by 5-10X, leveraging the incredible potential of technology, simplification, and relatable examples.

We aim to create an upskilling space where learners can discover, explore, and learn new tech skills at an unprecedented rate.

Who am I?

My name is Nikhilesh Tayal. I am a non-technical person turned AI professional. I self-learned AI.
