Starting today, the course that Ashok and I developed — Knowledge-Based AI: Cognitive Systems — for the Online Masters of Science in Computer Science can be viewed for free at Udacity.com. You can find it here. You do need an account to view the material, but they’re free to create.
The public free listing contains all of the video lectures, as well as all of the interactive exercises and nanotutors built into the course. What’s not available in the free Udacity version are the assignments, projects, and tests. If you’re interested in taking the class for credit, check out either Georgia Tech Professional Education (to take the course a la carte for a certificate) or the Georgia Tech Online Masters of Science in Computer Science (to complete an entire Masters).
Over the next few weeks, I’ll post a series of blog posts pointing out particular elements of the course’s design, grounded in actual lessons.
