Hi guys,

While doing some searching I came across the Standord University website.

Quote:
For the first time in its history, Stanford is offering some of its most popular engineering classes free of charge to students and educators around the world. Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE) expands the Stanford experience to students and educators online. A computer and an Internet connection are all you need. View lecture videos, access reading lists and other course handouts, take quizzes and tests, and communicate with other SEE students, all at your convenience


Some modules there which I think would be usefull with AI, learning software engineering, etc. You can view the lectures in youtube, see what material they use etc. Basically you can download the enture module.

The website is here:
http://see.stanford.edu/see/courses.aspx

Some of the modules:

Quote:

Introduction to Computer Science
Programming Methodology CS106A
Programming Abstractions CS106B
Programming Paradigms CS107

Artificial Intelligence
Introduction to Robotics CS223A
Natural Language Processing CS224N
Machine Learning CS229


Linear Systems and Optimization
The Fourier Transform and its Applications EE261
Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems EE263
Convex Optimization I EE364A
Convex Optimization II EE364B

Additional School of Engineering Courses
Programming Massively Parallel Processors CS193G
iPhone Application Programming CS193P


Take a look at it and let me know.

Regards,

Hi xxx,

Thank you for your interest in taking "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence", enrollment is now open. If you have not already done so, please visit http://www.ai-class.com/registration?email=xxx and complete the enrollment form, it only takes a minute. This is a required step for all students taking this class.

Due to its popularity, we will be offering this class in two tracks:

* the basic track - in which you watch lectures and answer basic quizzes. This is not the full course. But you will still learn all the basics of AI.
* the advanced track - is the full class, which aspires to be of Stanford difficulty. You do homework assignments and take exams.

In both cases, you will receive a statement of accomplishment signed by both of us (Peter and Sebastian) upon completion of this course. If you enroll for the advanced track now, you can always switch back to the basic track.

The schedule of this class is posted at robots.stanford.edu/cs221/online.html

In other news... we will supply sub-titles to all lectures, and we might be able to provide translations into popular foreign languages. Please stay tuned.

We are very excited to teach this class, and it's great to have you in this class. This is clearly an experiment. Let's hope things go smoothly and we all have fun, while we learn a lot about the exciting field of Artificial Intelligence.

Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig

---You will not receive any more e-mail from us unless you enroll.

So did anyone else sign up for the online classes? I'm taking "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" and "Machine Learning." So far they are pretty awesome.

I agree. Good stuff. Top notch material from the best experts, and it's free - can't beat that. Any tricks on how to wrap one's brains around the Baes Rule? I mean I understand both the formal part and the meaining but would like to know of perhaps some kind of mnemonic to make it stick.

It turns out I was on to something when I said I didn't get the Bayes.

http://yudkowsky.net/rational/bayes

And here is a quote:

"Bayesian reasoning is very counterintuitive. People do not employ Bayesian reasoning intuitively, find it very difficult to learn Bayesian reasoning when tutored, and rapidly forget Bayesian methods once the tutoring is over. This holds equally true for novice students and highly trained professionals in a field. Bayesian reasoning is apparently one of those things which, like quantum mechanics or the Wason Selection Test, is inherently difficult for humans to grasp with our built-in mental faculties."

The article goes on to drill it. Answer to my prayers.

looks like a great lecture. i'm not sure if i read it somewhere or it's just my hypothesis but i can bet that all top poker pros have outstanding built-in skills if it comes to bayesian reasoning.

Where did you actually sign up for a course?

I can only find the material which was distributed during the course.

Here is a nice compilation of online rescources http://www.learnerstv.com/

Sidenote, does anyone know why they give this away?
