I am a student of software engineering. We studied AI in last semester but it was all theory. Now I am interested in practically using AI. I have searched AI tutorials everywhere but i can't find single one. I have studied all theory, okay not all but much theory to understand the concepts of AI. If anyone can guide me to the right direction or any book or tutorial where i can learn a little bit of using AI in practical, i would be very thankful..

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to AI! I think this is a good, general question. You might want to focus it more on online tutorials. (It may also be somewhat similar to earlier "getting started" questions, so I highly recommend searching this stack for more info.) $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Sep 21 '17 at 21:47
  • $\begingroup$ Can you please give me any link for an online tutorial. I am searching but all i can find are libraries. I dont want to work with libraries for now as i wouldn't be able to understand the basics of AI $\endgroup$ – Ahmad Raza Sep 22 '17 at 11:01
  • $\begingroup$ @DukeZhou is this question inline with what the guidelines say?or l'm the only one here.let's keep it scientifically research based...some one who has done computer science course,already knows what to do. $\endgroup$ – quintumnia Sep 26 '17 at 10:08
  • $\begingroup$ Hey Ahmad, I have found that both the tensorflow machine learning crash course and the github repo mx-net-the-straight-dope to be the most comprehensive while still getting you going with writing ml/ai code rather quickly $\endgroup$ – nickw Aug 23 '19 at 14:05

If you want to put your knowledge into practice, I recommend participating in AI challenges. There are different platforms hosting such challenges available. One established website for game challenges is The AI Games. You have actual challenges, can compete with other AI authors and learn from them through discussions on the message board. Don't expect to win anything during your early attempts, this will only lead to frustration.

In case you need a more step by step guide on how to start, I recommend the articles How to learn Python for Data Science and Keras Tutorial: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Deep Learning in Python. They are really hands on and teach you the fundamentals for working with Python and Keras to build your first basic neural networks.

Last but not least I want to recommend the article Demystifying deep reinforcement learning, because it contains pseudo code examples for a deep learning algorithm, that will be valuable if you try to go in this direction.
