Stanford Offering Free School of Engineering Courses this Fall

Stanford School of Engineering is offering three classes this fall with open enrollment and free admission. The first is Introduction to Artificial Intelligence. It is taught by Peter Norvig, author of Artificial Intelligence, A Modern Approach, and Sebastian Thrun, Research Professor of Computer Science at Stanford.

From the course description:

Artificial Intelligence is the science of making computer software that reasons about the world around it. Humanoid robots, Google Goggles, self-driving cars, even software that suggests music you might like to hear are all examples of AI. In this class, you will learn how to create this software from two of the leaders in the field. Class begins October 10.

In addition to Artificial Intelligence, Introduction to Databases, and Introduction to Machine Learning will be taught. When registering, students can opt for the advanced track with assignments and quizzes, or the beginner track with just quizzes. After completion, a certificate is awarded.

I signed up for the AI class, looking forward to it immensely. I was going to pick up the book (1152 pages!) but I was quickly reminded by Amazon of the cost of school books. Over 43,000 people have signed up for the Machine Learning class already. Which one are you taking?

  1. Hey! after seing this i went on the site to sign up for the classes but they say

     “The exams will be offered within a 24 hour period around Nov 19/20 (midterm exam) and Dec 17/18 (final exam). Please make sure you are available during those days. The actual exams will only take 4 hours and there is flexibility when you start the exam within these dates, but once you begin you must complete the exam in 4 hours”but they don’t say how and where we’re supposed to have these exams. Is it online too? Online courses seems okay, but online exams sounds a little weird..
