Trustworthy AI for Decision Making Systems

Program Overview

Certificate Program:

AI tools are being developed at a blistering pace, deployed into an environment where value maximization precedes regulation. Policymakers, engineers, and technical managers are being asked to make mission-critical decisions about which emerging tools to adopt and how best to deploy them, while balancing concerns about system safety, security, and efficacy. This graduate certificate is designed to give you the tools to make those decisions with confidence, through foundations in machine learning, decision system design, special topics in AI and trust, and a depth or application elective to support unique learning needs.

Program Requirements

The following requirements must be fulfilled: 12 credits, including two semesters of a 0-credit course, 9 credits in selected courses, and one 3-credit elective course.
