Robots: Instructional Materials


Ever wanted to teach yourself AI? Here's 22 online classes from Stanford to MIT

#artificialintelligence

For some us, AI is kind of an iffy proposition. To many, it is nebulous enough to seem like it might replace us or our jobs. And the harbingers of this sea change aren't exactly affirming: every other week in the news, self-driving smart cars keep crashing, with injuries and sometimes fatalities. AI generally doesn't seem to be that well-received in mass media, either, like in movies like Minority Report or TV shows like Westworld. Because of all this, the public perception of AI might be on the negative side.


Here's a free AI class that'll prepare you for the robot takeover

#artificialintelligence

The Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence now offers a free six-part online course, The Elements of AI, available to anyone. I like free stuff: Especially when there's no catch. Sign up is quick and simple, and there's no application process. Completion of the course will earn you a LinkedIn certificate and, if you're enrolled in a Finnish university, you can get a couple credits. It's happening, Join 15k digital minds to shape what's next for your business More importantly, you'll get a free education designed to introduce students to the basic concepts surrounding artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning.


Data Science: Machine Learning algorithms in Matlab

@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.


The Biggest Hurdle to Building AI Apps, And How to Fix It!

#artificialintelligence

Building apps for cloud is a thing of the past. Yes, the new wave is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Unfortunately, AI apps that happen to learn from the experiences are lagging way behind when compared to self-driving cars and their evolvement. Since the whole concept of AI revolves around making life easier for the user, the same rule of thumb applies to artificial intelligence apps. Developers are perplexed about what exactly goes into developing such apps.


Modern Robotics, Course 2: Robot Kinematics Coursera

@machinelearnbot

About this course: Do you want to know how robots work? Are you interested in robotics as a career? Are you willing to invest the effort to learn fundamental mathematical modeling techniques that are used in all subfields of robotics? If so, then the "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" specialization may be for you. This specialization, consisting of six short courses, is serious preparation for serious students who hope to work in the field of robotics or to undertake advanced study.


If You Can Cook You Can Code Vol 5: Artificial Intelligence

@machinelearnbot

Kevin Kelly has stated that AI is going to make even bigger changes to the economy than the internet. If you missed out on the internet dot com bubble of the late 90s and early 2000s, now is your chance. AI is coming, and it's coming fast. And AI is also one of the most difficult things to learn. Once you get past a Wikipedia article the next step is a 1000 page textbook that will take a year to read plus learning a bunch of new fields of math and programming.


Data Science: Supervised Machine Learning in Python

Celebrate Arduino Day with discounts on courses and kits

Mashable

Most of all, it's a reminder that we all have the ability to build impressive projects without Tony Stark levels of genius or wealth. So on May 12th, why not take the time to get to know Arduino? To get you started, we've rounded up five of the best Arduino online courses and kits that'll give Iron Man a run for his money. Since Arduino itself is open-source, it's only fitting that you should get access to top-tier training materials for the price of your choosing. This collection of 10 project-based e-books covers everything from the Internet of Things to robotics to wearables.

Building Advanced OpenCV3 Projects with Python Udemy

@machinelearnbot

OpenCV is a native cross-platform C library for Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and image processing. It is increasingly being adopted for development in Python. This course features some trending applications of vision and deep learning and will help you master these techniques. You will learn how to retrieve structure from motion (sfm) and you will also see how we can build an application to capture 2D images and join them dynamically to achieve street views by capturing camera projection angles and relative image positions. You will also learn how to track your head in 3D in real-time, and perform facial recognition against a goldenset.
