Comment: This class had the potential to be so great. It's a great tech elective class though as in it's not much work, and the topics are interesting. The downside is that I didn't come out of the class having learned much. The problem with this class is that for you to learn a lot, they would have to incorporate much more advanced math and programming, which they simply do not do. So, the class ends up becoming a dumbed down version of all these AI/Machine learning topics which are interesting, but I don't have any greater knowledge really of those subjects than I did before the class started because the hw assignments were't really that challenging techincally. They were only hard because they asked you obscure short answer questions based on optional reading assignments or the lecture slides that barely had anything on them. I wish they restructured this class into two different classes, one more advanced and then this one.

Comment: Grade is 60% homework (about 2/3 MATLAB coding and 1/3 conceptual questions) and 40% take-home final (2/3 conceptual, 1/3 MATLAB). Easy and interesting assignments. Enthusiastic, clear, and funny lecturer. Highly recommended.

Comment: Gives lecture slides, which is great. Also gives a 2-minute stretch break in the middle of each lecture! The labs were OK, but there wasn't much of anything there. Overall, really good teacher who knows his stuff.

Comment: Sections didn't really help. Had to memorize a lot for the exam. There was a review sheet before each midterm/final. But some of the questions were from categories not on the review sheet. Professor was nice though.
