In which the first video goes live and we meet Pros. Thrun and Norvig.
They had a bit of a struggle but Stanford have got the introductory lectures up on their site (via YouTube). The profs. seem affable and there's nothing too scary in the first video series -mainly just definition of terms and the illustration of some problems- but the reading list promises a hard climb.
Stanford seem to be encouraging these courses to be social -and for the videos to be viewed communally, turns out that there's a group in London so I'll trot along and take a look.
With apologies to Lurcio
