What is CS373 - Building a Robotic Car?
This class, taught by one of the foremost experts in AI, will teach you basic methods in Artificial Intelligence, including: probabilistic inference, search, planning, localisation and control, all with a focus on robotics. Extensive programming examples and assignments will apply these methods in the context of building self-driving cars.
Why should I learn how to build a robot car?
First of all, this is a fascinating subject. The technologies involved are cutting edge, but the theories behind them are simpler than you might think. In addition to learning the math and science behind these technologies, you will also improve your coding probabilities as you solve the same problems that scientists at places like Google, Stanford, and MIT have been working on for years. Having these skills will not only be personally fulfilling, but could have benefits to your professional life as well. Taking this course is the first step that you can take towards creating a world where every car on the road drives itself. If you love learning or just hate traffic, this course is for you.
