Online AI Courses To Get You Started, Even Better For Non-Engineers.

I know for the fact, that all of us believe that AI can help us grow our careers or companies, but what stops from taking the first step is "Where to start from". Usually you will hit google and then get swarmed by more 10,000 AI online courses and then your next question - "Which One Should I Take" . For people with "Non Engineering Background" , this becomes even more daunting.
