Hi Joe and All,

 

So, I’m sure a countless introduction to this course will be made tomorrow, right? At college the professor just teaches,

in a group we can bounce some ideas of to other people, and study along the way.

 

Joe, did you post a free copy of the required AI, and ML, book in the many responses you gave?  I did find and view the

http://www.stanford.edu/class/cs229/materials.html course’s awesome navigation, and the

http://www.khanacademy.org/?video=introduction-to-matrices#linear-algebra (which has an abundance

linear algebra explanations) teachings.

 

Just a note: Joe, I read that tidbit on Munakata’s genetic algorithms (what the preview allowed, anyway J).

It’s really cool how Munakata’s ideas stemmed from his work at CSU, right next door to our meeting.

 

Thanks,

Edgar Zotov

 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.'
http://robots.stanford.edu/cs221/

 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,
Joe

Hi Joe,

 

So, is this study session, on Saturday, preparation for the October AI course?

 

Thanks,

Edgar Zotov
