There are two more courses guys, machine learning and databases :D Will sign up for both, it will be crazy, since I will study for my college too. But it will be worth it I think, will put those stuff later in my CV.

Thanks for this. I signed up but unfortuantely I would've loved to take the advanced class but I do not believe I will be able to devote the time required with how swamped I am at work and will be for the rest of the year. Oh well, the basic course should still be really good.

Thanks again.

Thanks a lot for this.

Seems like a hell a lot of fun to learn many different things in this department. Plus the professors seem quite excited about this themselves.

Anyway would be cool to know if we will are still able to change from basic to advanced.

[font="Arial, Helvetica,"][font="inherit"][size="2"][font="inherit"][size="2"][font="inherit"][size="2"]If you are taking the Stanford Artificial Intelligence course, OCW has some great resources to supplement your study. If taking a structured course is more of a commitment than you are ready for, these courses are great opportunity to explore the field:

I signed up to both this and the two other courses.


I study programming at a uni in sweden, but being able to take part in this feels like a real treat.
You know the teacher is good when he have written the course literature :P

I think it is great that more schools/universities offer their education in alternative forms.
There are so many people (including me) that have signed up for these courses that would othervise never be able to do something like this!

like! =)

Me too. A few of the questions are framed badly and don't give you all the necessary information, but I guess if I can spot that I must be learning something [img]http://public.gamedev.net/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img]

So far it's been pitched just right for me - lots of "uh-huh" and "ah, I see. Awesome!" moments, and very few "what the hell did he just say?"

When I first looked at the syllabus and exercises for the real Stanford class, I was a bit worried about implementing A* as the first week's homework. After doing the online homework, I'm a little disappointed and very tempted to do the Stanford pacman homework as well. Which just goes to show how well paced the course is so far, I guess!

I don't know much about AI, and it's been interesting to compare a modern Stanford(ish) "Intro to AI" course to the "Intro to AI and KBS" I did many years ago in my time at (a lesser) university.

For me the course is running pretty great :) I remember trying to implement a pathfinding algorithm in my sidescroller and having a hard time with it. I wish I had taken this class before having attempted it, as it would've made things magnificently easier. But oh well, at least I won't have as much trouble now XD

Great course I think. I hope it can only get better!

I am really happy about how things go so far. They concentrate on the good stuff so far and don't waste time on things like history and bla bla. That was just given as suggested reading. Also Peter's explanations about Uniform vs A* search was amazing.

The cool thing was I finished the book AI Game Programming by Example right before I started the course. I finished it in the sense, I did all the code too. It made it much easier for me being in this course now. When they talk about agents, I am not like woooo what is that woow, my goood, you know :) ... I have already done that and I feel comfortable instead of going nuts about it. That experience allows me now to concentrate on the real stuff in the course.

Can anyone explain how the A* homework question about the hueristic is "yes"? I said it isn't because although the pieces surronding the goal are correct, there is no way the values set on the rest of the board are guesses to the goal.

Other than that the course and homework is going very well.

Bah nevermind I figured it out looking back through my notes for the 100th time. The hueristic is admissiable as long as it doesn't over estimate.

Anyone know when we/if we really get into any game related AI? I am having a hard time staying focused and interested with all of this machine learning stuff. I may be more related if it was being linked to real world uses.

It's a university course, not a trade school. They are offering you higher learning for the sake of knowing. It's up to you to find new ways of applying the concepts.

I understand that but I guess I assumed it was going to have more relavence to games as they are trying to get people interested in the field of AI and several statements about AI say game AI is currently the most interesting area. The first week with tree searches and A* I can see an application, I can barely see an application of week 2's lessons on Bayes Networks but this weeks Machine Learning is just dragging for me. With the crunch at work I am struggling to find time for the units and I suppose I am looking for if they aren't going to be talking specifically about game AI anytime soon than maybe I should stop killing myself trying to get these done.
