October 10th (the day before my birthday) through December 16th Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig host a massive online open course (MOOC) on Artificial Intelligence. Using Standford’s introductory course on Artificial Intelligence, they will facilitate a free course open to anyone on the ideas behind programming that reasons based on its environment.
Having participated in several MOOCs over the course of the last few years I have to say I am especially excited about this one. This primer on artificial intelligence will definitely help me develop immersive educational environments for my students.
