We all are excited by Google’s Self-driving cars, that can literally go out into the american street driverless.
Google’s Self driving cars have been doing well. If you’ve ever wanted your own self-driving car, this is your chance. Sebastian Thrun, instructor of the Stanford AI class is opening up a new class that will teach everyone who enrolls how to program a self-driving car in seven weeks. That’s right within 7 weeks, you will learn all the algorithms, and Data structures required to make it possible.
The robotic car class is being taught alongside a CS 101 “intro to programming” course. The lectures start from very basics of programming and you will go all the way to how to make a search engine from scratch in seven weeks. The “Building a Search Engine” class is filled with awesomeness.
Programming a Robotic car is going to be a 7 weeks tutorial as well. You can start registering now to receive a notification when its ready.
This class, taught by one of the foremost experts in AI, will teach you basic methods in Artificial Intelligence, including: probabilistic inference, computer vision, machine learning, and planning, all with a focus on robotics. Extensive programming examples and assignments will apply these methods in the context of building self-driving cars. You will get a chance to visit, via video, the leading research labs in the field, and meet the scientists and engineers who are building self-driving cars at Stanford and Google.
