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 !
