AI class at Stanford
by Massimo Lauria
Maybe you heard that Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun, professors at Stanford University, are giving an online course on Artificial Intelligence1. The guys are real experts in the field; this course has got tens of thousands of people enrolled for the “online version”, which runs in parallel to the actual class in Stanford.
The quality of the experiment is amazing: it is not just a bunch of lecture videos. Videos are specifically made for selfstudy, with integrated exercises and everything.
But one brilliant thing of the course, that I guess even the professors didn’t foresee, is the amazing series of “lecture notes” that are being produced at http://larvecode.tumblr.com/.
Seriously, even if you don’t care about AI go and watch what these people (or this person) are doing on a daily basis.
