Artificial intelligence and machine learning are expected to make significant breakthroughs in a number of industries over the coming years, and both are a big focus for Microsoft going forward. For its own employees, Microsoft already offers AI training sessions, but it's now expanding those efforts to the public.
Microsoft today announced (opens in new tab) the Microsoft Professional Program in AI, a public program that offers up online courses intended to give engineers "job-ready skills and real-world experience" in AI and data science. From Microsoft:
In total, the program is made up of 10 required courses, with each running for three months starting at the beginning of a quarter. The courses can be taken in any order, and each includes hands-on labs and assessments. Anyone who successfully completes the learning track will earn a Microsoft Professional Program Certificate in Artificial Intelligence.

I've looked at the website linked to, but doesn't see what the cost is for these courses. What do the AI courses run?
