can you good people direct me to sources to start learning the aspects of AI?
I recommend you the Artificial Intelligence micromaster on EDX, at least the first course (AI), in my own experience provide a very good background and framework to think about the field of AI. You can put in practice the theory in the project assignments (python programming is required).
In general on internet one can found more material about machine learning subfield (the micromaster also have a course on machine learning) and this program gives you a more broad view of the field.
The course also is based on the book Artificial Intelligence: a modern approach (Norvig - Russell).
