Don’t Miss – Stanford Machine Learning

In a matter of days, Stanford will begin the second round of the free online machine learning course. I enrolled in the course last fall, and it exceded all expectations. Professor Andrew Ng is great. The prerequisites are minimal, so don’t worry if your math is a little rusty. Also, the videos are short (around 8 – 12 minutes). Therefore, you don’t need large blocks of time set aside. Just watch a video or two during your lunch and you should be able to keep up. There are programming assignments (optional) and review questions to go along with the videos.

Don’t worry if you fall behind. The videos will still be there. The material you learn is more important than the pace. If you don’t know machine learning, the Stanford class is a great opportunity to get started.

Here is Professor Ng’s introduction to the class.
