10 Free Courses to Build AI Agents in 2024

A new era of autonomous AI agents has begun. The latest developments from Google I/O 2024 and OpenAI’s Spring Update confirm that all major companies are bullish on agents and that the future of AI will be ‘agentic’.

“Honestly, the path to AGI feels like a journey rather than a destination, but I think agent workflows could help us take a small step forward on this very long journey,” said Andrew Ng. 

AI Agents will be ubiquitous, and the best part is that you can build them too!

Here are the top 10 free courses to help you build next-gen consumer and enterprise agent workflows that can enhance your productivity and help you solve complex problems.

Multi AI Agent Systems with crewAI

Recently, Andrew Ng unveiled this agentic short course, ‘Multi AI Agent Systems with crewAI’. 

Available on DeepLearning.AI and built in collaboration with crewAI’s founder and CEO João Moura, it will teach you how to break down complex tasks into subtasks for specialised AI agents. Alongside this, it helps in discovering how to define roles, set expectations, and manage interactions among multiple AI agents.

The course also touches upon key agentic AI techniques like role-playing, tool use, memory, guardrails, and cross-agent collaboration. It also helps you build and manage your own multi-agent systems to tackle complex tasks effectively.

By the end of the course, you will also be equipped to design and deploy multi-agent architectures, driving significant progress in AI systems.
