The large scale machine learning class I taught with Yann LeCun has finished. As I expected, it took quite a bit of time :-). We had about 25 people attending in person on average and 400 regularly watching the recorded lectures which is substantially more sustained interest than I expected for an advanced ML class. We also had some fun with class projects—I’m hopeful that several will eventually turn into papers.
I expect there are a number of professors interested in lecturing on this and related topics. Everyone will have their personal taste in subjects of course, but hopefully there will be some convergence to common course materials as well. To help with this, I am making the sources to my presentations available. Feel free to use/improve/embelish/ridicule/etc… in the pursuit of the perfect course.
