In my previous post I mentioned the free AI course being run by Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun (122,314 and rising) in conjunction with Stanford University School of Engineering. Professor Andrew Ng is running a related course on Machine Learning. This is also a free on-line course run along the same lines as the AI course. Over 30,000 people have signed up so far.
I mention this because Andrew has just confirmed that he will be speaking at this year’s Rules Fest. Rules Fest is all about the practical application by developers of reasoning technologies to real-world problems. It brings together people from across the whole spectrum of public and private sector organisations, including commercial and research organisations and academia, to inspire, inform and enlighten developers and architects. Machine learning is central to the rapidly evolving world of intelligent systems, and we are very excited that Andrew will be speaking at the event.
