Google, Udacity offer free course on Gemini API

Google and online educator Udacity have teamed up to offer a free online course to teach developers and designers how to use the Google AI Studio developer tool and Google’s Gemini API AI model. Participants will be taught how to build generative AI capabilities into applications, websites, products, operations, and services.

Entitled “Gemini API by Google,” the Udacity course was announced July 9 and developed in collaboration with Google and Machine Learning @ Berkeley. The course will take fewer than two hours to complete. Udacity recommends that learners already know basic Python skills. The course agenda includes using the Gemini API effectively and using core components such as making calls, configuring parameters, sending prompts, and receiving results. Students will learn fundamental concepts behind LLMs (large language models) and Gemini models, the differences among common prompting techniques such as zero-shot, few-shot, and chain-of-thought prompting, and how to use Google AI Studio for designing prompts.

Generative AI has become the most sought-after capability across sectors, Udacity CEO Kai Roemmelt said. Using the Gemini API, developers can integrate the largest and most capable AI model from Google into their apps, regardless of interface, platform, or industry, Roemmelt said. This makes acquiring practical knowledge relating to integrating AI into new and existing web and mobile applications with Gemini a highly marketable skill, he said.
