Artificial Intelligence: A Free Online Course from MIT

#artificialintelligence

That's because, to paraphrase Amazon's Jeff Bezos, artificial intelligence (AI) is "not just in the first inning of a long baseball game, but at the stage where the very first batter comes up." Look around, and you will find AI everywhere--in self driving cars, Siri on your phone, online customer support, movie recommendations on Netflix, fraud detection for your credit cards, etc. To be sure, there's more to come. Featuring 30 lectures, MIT's course "introduces students to the basic knowledge representation, problem solving, and learning methods of artificial intelligence." It includes interactive demonstrations designed to "help students gain intuition about how artificial intelligence methods work under a variety of circumstances."


Ms. Robot Will Be Teaching You: Robot Lecturers in Four Modes of Automated Remote Instruction

AAAI Conferences

Methods and materials are described for employing a human-shaped robot as a lecturer in automated remote instruction. Video segments from the stimuli of a 2 (participant substrate: VR or non-VR) x 2 (robot embodiment: copresent or screen) balanced between-participants experiment are provided. In each condition, a robot delivers the content for a lecture on the nutrition of carbohydrates. The robot uses identical speech and body movement while the same set of slides plays on an adjacent computer, thereby controlling for such factors as educational content, robot appearance and robot size. The experiment employs Aldebaran’s 25-degrees-of-freedom Nao as the robot and the Oculus Rift as the immersive VR system. The lecture speech and slides were obtained with permission from a Mandarin Chinese-language online course and translated into English. The setup for different delivery modes for automated remote instruction are illustrated using a robot delivering foreign language online content. These methods support the design and evaluation of robots that perform the role of lecturer.


Data Science: Supervised Machine Learning in Python

@machinelearnbot

In recent years, we've seen a resurgence in AI, or artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Machine learning has led to some amazing results, like being able to analyze medical images and predict diseases on-par with human experts. Google's AlphaGo program was able to beat a world champion in the strategy game go using deep reinforcement learning. Machine learning is even being used to program self driving cars, which is going to change the automotive industry forever. Imagine a world with drastically reduced car accidents, simply by removing the element of human error.
