Free online courses in AI & ML

December 14th, 2014|

Some of my colleagues asked to me for a recommendation for a free online course in AI or ML. There are several excellent free online courses in AI & ML. I'm not probably the best advisor in this area. What I can share is that I have partially followed the lectures of these three professors and it helped me: Stanford: Andrew Ng MIT: Henry Winston CalTech: Yaser Abu-Mostafa   Hope this information may help your self-learning extracurricular activity!
