Eat lettuce? In the US, there's a 3% chance it was tended by one of startup Blue River's robots. +Carol Reiley and I just visited Blue River technology, which is using very cool machine learning and computer vision to improve farming. http://www.bluerivert.com/

Any chance of getting a video of this farming equipment in action? I love to see it handle obstacles!

Learn to Speak or Teach better in 30 minutes! This is my first LinkedIn Influencer post, and talks about how I learned to teach. Hopefully this technique will be useful to you too.  http://linkd.in/1gDkrHJ

Yeah, this works wonders. Even just mentally going over what you are going to be saying in each slide / unit helps a bit.

Free Stanford event, open to the public: Machine learning poster session, Wednesday Dec 11, 8.30-11.30am.  With ~350 posters, we're about the same size as NIPS, but compressed into 3 hours.  Thanks to Yelp for sponsoring food for the event.  http://stanford.io/19cMtel

David Blei wins the ACM Infosys award for Topic Modeling.  http://awards.acm.org/infosys/  This is thrilling news for machine learning!  I'm also proud to have co-authored papers with 3 of the 8 ACM Infosys recipients so far. :)  http://awards.acm.org/infosys/year.cfm

I'm thrilled to announce that Rick Levin will be joining Coursera as our new CEO. I'll become Chairman of the Board, and serve as Chief Evangelist for the company, work on MOOC pedagogy, and grow our presence in China. Daphne will become President; and our current President Lila Ibrahim will become our Chief Business Officer. This will help us accelerate Coursera and the MOOC movement's growth. Having gotten to know Rick the past few months, I'm really excited to work with him, and I couldn't be more thrilled!! http://blog.coursera.org/post/80601201906/welcome-rick-levin-as-ceo-of-coursera

A lot has happened in Deep Learning over the past few months. Here's a great summary in Nature on the recent trends and progress, as well as descriptions of some up-and-coming deep learning projects. +Geoffrey Hinton +Yann LeCun

+Thomas Dietterich, How do the methods in deep learning compare with the work of DJLEE at BYU on image recognition. Though genetic algorithms are a form of machine learning. However there seems to be more "rules" to it. Thanks

Progress by Stanford's Kwabena Boahen and others on building large brain simulations. This is exciting hardware progress, and going forward, I think the key challenge for building applications will be to tie the hardware advances to modern AI+machine learning algorithms. The article also has a nice mention of my on-campus machine learning class being Stanford's largest class.

I'm disappointed at the ratio of hype to fact in this article.

Fun Music Video (Katy Perry parody) that we made at Coursera!  Huge shoutout to Connor Diemand-Yauman, David Unger, and many other Coursera team members for creating this.

This really makes one envy anyone who is lucky enough to be part of the Coursera team. I love Coursera! I can't remember the last time I was this excited about anything.
