Reddit has a study group, and also you can link via facebook for a study group. I plan to take the class as well (advanced level), and take some serious time to go through the material. Maybe we can have a LA Robotics study group, but we'd need a place to gather, etc and probably do it weekly and consistently.

This is the Reddit study group: http://www.reddit.com...­

Thanks for posting the links - this is just the sort of resource I'd been hoping to find.

I've already signed up for the Machine Learning class, advanced version.

If any local study group forms, let me know.

Thanks

Interesting press in the NY Times.

If the NY Times paywall blocks you try going to the article from the link in the twitter feed of @aiclass with content: "Read about @aiclass and @SebastianThrun in today's New York Times: nytimes.com/2011/10/03/opiā€¦"

I signed up for the AI class, looking forward to it! I think this is a great resource that Stanford is providing and am excited to see where education goes from here. I have also been working my way through CS classes at: see.stanford.edu
