IntroductionArtificial Intelligence (AI) is a methodology for using a non-human system to learn fromexperience and imitate human intelligent behaviour. The BCS Essentials Certificate in ArtificialIntelligence tests a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the terminology and thegeneral principles. This syllabus covers the potential benefits; types of Artificial Intelligence;the basic process of Machine Learning (ML); the challenges and risks associated with an AIproject, and the future of AI and Humans in work.Levels of Knowledge / SFIA LevelsThis syllabus will provide candidates with the levels of difficulty highlighted within the followingtable, also enabling them to develop the skills to operate at the highlighted level ofresponsibility (as defined within the SFIA framework) within their workplace. The levels ofknowledge and SFIA levels are further explained on the website.Level7654321Levels of KnowledgeLevels of Skill and Responsibility mberSet strategy, inspire and mobiliseInitiate and influenceEnsure and adviseEnableApplyAssistFollowLearning OutcomesCandidates should be able to demonstrate a basic knowledge and understanding of generalconcepts in the following areas:1. Human and Artificial Intelligence;2. The Machine Learning process;3. The benefits, challenges and risks of a Machine Learning project;4. The future of humans and machines in Work.BCS Essentials Certificate in Artificial Intelligence Syllabus V1.0 BCS 2018Page 4 of 16

Target AudienceThe Artificial Intelligence Essentials certificate is focussed on individuals with an interest in,(or need to implement) AI in an organisation, especially those working in areas such asscience, engineering, knowledge engineering, finance, or IT services.The following roles could be interested: Engineers Scientists Professional research managers Chief technical officers Chief information officers Organisational change practitioners and managers Business change practitioners and managers Service architects and managers Program and planning managers Service provider portfolio strategists / leads Process architects and managers Business strategists and consultants Web page developersCourse Format and DurationCandidates can choose to study for this certificate from one of two ways: by either attendinga training course provided by a BCS Accredited Training Organisation, or by self-study.BCS recommends that for full coverage of the syllabus to be achieved, training coursesleading to the certificate should normally run for a minimum 6 hours over 1 day.Candidates should spend about 40 hours on self-study with no prior knowledge.BCS Essentials Certificate in Artificial Intelligence Syllabus V1.0 BCS 2018Page 5 of 16
