HJU's BSPH Biostats folks are doing some great stuff. I liked Jeff Leek's "op ed" in Nature "5 Ways to Fix Statistics" (2017). I think I'll have to take their 4-hour Data Science course you linked to, though with all the 5-minute classifier tutorials, 4 hours should get you a PhD these days, I think.

Most important thing for non-experts to understand is how important it is to "ask the right questions" in ML / "AI" / Stats / Data Science - and what kinds of problems naturally lend themselves to ML solutions (and which don't).

This is a great intro: https://developers.google.com/machine-learning/problem-framing/

This is another really good high level intro i found: https://www.coursera.org/learn/data-science-course

Second most important is understanding the importance of data https://developers.google.com/machine-learning/data-prep/
