Resources

At the end of Session 2, I posted a bunch of resources for topics that interested people. It’s only fair that I post these for you all as well. Singularity “Where Am I” by Daniel Dennett “Three Arguments Against the Singularity” by Charlie Stross “The Coming Technological Singularity: How to Survive in the Post-Human Era.” [...]

Resources

Some of the resources I mentioned in class: Visualizing how Haar features work in detecting a face: https://vimeo.com/12774628 See previous posts for “Who Am I” by Daniel Dennett and “Three Arguments Against the Singularity” by Charlie Stross. For the pages on Singularity: The original paper: “The Coming Technological Singularity: How to Survive in the Post-Human Era.” [...]

Functional Programming

Hey all! If you’d like to try out functional programming in a fun, online environment, this web site has an online Clojure interpreter and also an awesome live tutorial you can follow along. Clojure is a modern functional programming language based on Lisp, but also with some object-oriented components, and runs on the Java Virtual [...]

Autonomous Helicopter

The page of videos that I showed in class are here. The page also has the publications that go into more detail about how the helicopters were trained. http://heli.stanford.edu/ Go watch and read these in your free time!

Lab 12: :)

Part I: Project Work on your project! Part II: Project Work on your project some more! By now, you should be able to thoroughly explain to me what your topic is about and how it works if I were to sit down and talk with you for half an hour. Part III: Project Work on it some [...]

Wednesday Lecture Topics

If you’re interested in some topic that hasn’t been covered yet, and won’t likely be covered by either a lecture or a final presentation, put it in a comment below!

Lab 11: Bayesian Networks

Part I: Probability Linearity of Expectation can be summarized as E(aX+bY) = aE(X) + bE(Y). Prove this using the facts we have learned so far. Prove the Tower Rule, E(E(X|Y)) = E(X) Variance and Covariance Show that E(XY)=E(X)E(Y) is not a validity. When does E(XY)=E(X)E(Y)? The difference, E(XY)-E(X)E(Y) is called the covariance. Why is this [...]

Happy 4th of July!

(or, for those of you not from the United States, the American Independence Day.)   Even Nyan Cat is celebrating!
