Udacity – how to build your own search engine over even a robotic car

Last year I successfully attended “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” bay Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig. Sebastian and Peter are pioneers on the field of free online education and gave an awesome experience to a lot of online students.

A few days ago I received this Email from Sebastian asking to promote his latest venture udacity:

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for your interest in AI Class and congratulations to those who
successfully graduated. We were totally amazed that over 23,000 students
made it all the way to the end in a Stanford graduate-level class.

Due to popular demand, we are teaching a follow-up class: AI for Robotics at www.udacity.com . Also due to popular demand, we now have a programming environment, so you can develop and test software. Our
goal is to teach you to program a self-driving car in 7 weeks. This is a topic very close to my heart, and I am eager to share it with you. (This class builds on the concepts in ai-class, but ai-class is NOT required).

We are also launching an introduction to programming class, where students will learn to program a search engine, without any prior
knowledge of programming. This will be great for students new to computer science.

We are doing this with a new university: Udacity. In the next months, we will offer an entire computer science curriculum through Udacity, and offer certification services so that an entire degree can be obtained online.

I would love to see you in class again! I would also love if you could help us spread the word and recruit students. Udacity is an experiment in democratizing education, in making free education available for
everyone in the world. It can only succeed if you join us and help spread the word.

Sebastian

Best of AI-Class 2011

AI-Class was an exciting experience. So many people were supporting the professors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig with their work. For most of us watching all the lectures, doing the homeworks and taking midterm and final exams was quite a lot besides regular jobs and other spare time projects. I for my self built a house, built 2 smaller websites and went to my full time job doing some overtime. Besides that I still wanted to have some time with my family. Let’s just say a bunch of things besides learning

All the people compiling additional resources helped me a lot, so by listing them below I want to say Thanks !

AI-Class Grade calculator – let the machine do it

It’s not to hard for an AI-Class student to calculate her or his final score and the corresponding grade but having the machine do it for you is far more geeky.
I built a small calculator in Google docs, so feel free to use it for your grade estimation.

 

Just follow this link and find the calculator:

New Stanford courses online – enroll now

For all of you interested in education, Stanford’s new online courses maybe worth a look. I like the entrepreneur classes and I will try to attend as many courses as possible. How  about you?
