| Yes. We are studying ahead of time for the upcoming Stanford AI class, and the upcoming Stanford ML class. The plan is to spend an hour on each for the first meeting. First on 15 questions from chapter 3 of 'Artificial Intelligence a modern approach', and maybe some from chapters 1 and 2 if people want to cover that. For the second hour on questions created from the first 1.5 to 3 hours of Khan Linear Algebra videos in prep for the ML course. If you don't have the book, consider stopping by anyway to get a head start and talk about options for study.|
Stanford is the number 1 or 2 University in the world for computer science undergraduates, so studying ahead of time is no doubt a good idea.
I noticed this on the AI class site:
'A solid understanding of probability and linear algebra will be required.'
So anyone taking the AI class only may want to consider sticking around for the ML class review of those topics for a couple weeks.
That's great you know Matlab Michael, because the ML course is mostly math and it would probably be good to see if there is a way Matlab can work with it, if you would like to try that. If your Laptop is setup with it Matlab might be useful tomorrow in checking our Linear Algebra answers and related.
See you tomorrow at 10,
