Kudos to Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig for teaching a free online version of Stanford University’s intro to artificial intelligence (AI) class. The website promises that online class participants will receive a benchmark certificate. The class is scheduled to occur between October 10 and December 16, 2011. I plan on purchasing the text book and attending the class if I can manage to sign up fast enough when the online section opens.
- Will other professors offer popup online sections?
- How many participants will be allowed to take the class?
- Could this type of online section breakdown the admissions gatekeeping system?
