Get a Stanford University Education in AI!

We have discussed robots here before but did you know that this fall YOU can take an online artificial intelligence class, straight from Stanford University from you living room! It’s true!

The course teachers are Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig. Dr. Norvig is a former NASA scientist who is now Google’s director of research and Thrun is responsible for the Google driverless car.
They say this online course and other classes that will be offered have a goal of, “…bringing education to places that can’t be reached”. What’s particularly fascinating about this class is that it went viral and started with only 80 students and now has over 60,000 students potentially enrolled.

If that many students actually follow the class through to the end I think that goal of spreading education will indeed be reached.

It is recommended that you know some higher math to take the class but there are no actual restrictions to signing up. You won’t get Stanford class credit but you will get a “statement of accomplishment” if you make it through.

I love this idea. Go here to sign up.
