Course Description

Artificial intelligence is already all around you, from web search to video games. AI methods plan your driving directions, filter your spam, and focus your cameras on faces. AI lets you guide your phone with your voice and read foreign newspapers in English. Beyond today's applications, AI is at the core of many new technologies that will shape our future. From self-driving cars to household robots, advancements in AI help transform science fiction into real systems.

The course will introduce the basic ideas and techniques underlying the design of intelligent computer systems. CS188.1x focuses on Behavior from Computation and will cover the following areas:

  • Statistical and decision–theoretic modeling paradigm. By the end of this course, you will have built autonomous agents that efficiently make decisions in stochastic and in adversarial settings.
  • Reasoning and Learning. With this additional machinery your agents will be ...

Best MOOC I've done. I learnt more doing this than the countless hours I spent at uni. Best lecturer I've come across, the dude really knows his stuff. It's evident in the way he effortlessly and concisely explains concepts. Dan you da real MVP

I've done over 40 MOOCs in last 4 years. This one is by far the best out there. The lectures, exercises and overall content is top-notch. It's very very engaging and insightful. I was kind of disappointed that follow up course was never put up and that this one too went dormant. I really hope they restart these courses

Oh man, what to say? Absolutely incredible! The time commitment is large, but none of the time was wasted. The course was very well designed and uses the EdX platform beautifully. The labs were very tough, but also very rewarding. Great mix of learning the theory and then applying the theory in the labs. And they are fun too as you see your PacMan move around and eat dots. And very quickly you have designed a PacMan that does much better than most any human ever could. Very nice that they revisit similar problems with newly learned techniques so you can see advantages and disadvantages of each. I could go on and on, but this course is great. The only negative is that I'm now so excited about this field that it makes me want to change careers!

I have taken this course in 2012 to the end. This is definitely one of the best courses I have ever taken, very immersive and interesting! The only problem I had with it, it was a rather time-consuming one (I spent about 1 hour daily and a whole day on the weekend), but it could be just me. If I had less stressful schedule I would sign up for the follow-up course in no time!

I am elated edX put the archived version of this course back up. I (and others I presume) plan on coming back to it for reference on an ongoing basis. Course content is fantastic. I think I took this course the first and only time it was offered. It took up all my weekends but was well worth it. The projects with pacman completely blew my mind. The best (and hardest) course I have taken on edx so far. Instructor(s) for the course were awesome as well. Thanks UCB for allowing them to share this great material with the world. You have no idea. Really. Thanks again. I hope there is a refresh of this course with the current state of the art at some point in the near future. BTW, I am giving 4 stars just because I feel there is always room for improvement :) Otherwise it would be 5 stars all the way. We love you depth first search!

One of the best MOOCs I have taken. The course content itself is interesting and the instructors are really enthusiastic about the subject. There are several Pac-Man projects to apply the concepts learnt, it's fun and challenging at the same time.

Super! The tutorials are really interactive with great exercises. You learn as you do and this is the best example of that. The way of teaching is really refreshing. The voice, pace, and way of speaking are one of its kind. Probably the best courses available!

Some years ago I was consulting with the communications community at the Naval Air Station in San Diego. A Field-Grade office and I agreed to meet for a couple beers and a serious pool game. He showed up in his dress uniform and I was in my 3 piece suit, white shirt, 14 pound wingtips and a sincere tie. As we discussed a couple of ideas over a couple beers a fellow dressed in coveralls approached. He was armed with pool cue and a beer and said, "I hear you guys talking technology. What is the hottest topic in the tech world these days?" I responded, "Well, the concept of Artificial Intelligence seems to be getting some traction." He thought for a minute and then rejoined - "Ya know, bout 1 in the morning you hear a lot of that in here." He and then turned and went back to his table. My point is you sound like you might have an answer looking for a problem. Good luck - ask the Knowledge Management and Digital Transformatio...

Good luck - ask the Knowledge Management and Digital Transformation vendors how offering a solution before understanding the prospect's problem works, short and long term.
