AI News, Stanford University Undergraduate Major in Computer Science artificial intelligence

Stuart J. Russell

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree with first-class honours in Physics from the University of Oxford where he was an undergraduate student at Wadham College, Oxford in 1982, and his PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1986 for research on inductive reasoning and analogical reasoning supervised by Michael Genesereth.[10]

He also holds an appointment as Adjunct Professor of Neurological Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, where he pursues research in computational physiology and intensive-care unit monitoring.[2][7]

probabilistic reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, real-time decision making, multitarget tracking, computer vision,[14]

In 2017, he collaborated with the Future of Life Institute to produce a video, Slaughterbots, about swarms of drones assassinating political opponents, and presented this to a United Nations meeting about the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.[24][25]

Stuart Russell was co-winner, in 1995, of the IJCAI Computers and Thought Award at the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, the premier international award in artificial intelligence for researchers under 35.[27]

In 2012, he was appointed to the Blaise Pascal Chair in Paris, awarded to 'internationally acclaimed foreign scientists in all disciplines,' as well as the senior Chaire d'excellence of France's Agence Nationale de la Recherche.[31] Russell

In 2006, Google purchased the most popular website for user-submitted streaming videos, YouTube, for $1.65 billion in stock.

In March 2018, it was announced that a company personally funded by Page, called Kitty Hawk, had reached an agreement with officials in New Zealand to begin the certification process on a fully electric, self-piloting flying taxi.

With Boeing, Airbus and Uber among the companies looking to break ground in the burgeoning air taxi industry, Kitty Hawk is aiming to have a commercial network of vehicles up and running by 2021.

Computer Science Program

(Click link for a short presentation on Choosing Introductory CS Courses) The undergraduate major in computer science offers a broad and rigorous training for students interested in the science of computing.

Many students obtaining a BS in CS will go on to work in industry or do graduate work in a branch of CS such as artificial intelligence, robotics, software design, graphics, theory, or hardware design.

The minimum major in computer science consists of 96 units, including 26 units of math, 11 units of science, 13 units of engineering fundamentals, one course in TIS (Technology in Society), and 43 units of core depth.

After learning essential programming techniques in CS106 (via the CS106A/B/X courses) and the mathematical foundations of computer science in CS103, the computer science major offers coursework in areas such as artificial intelligence, biocomputation, computer engineering, graphics, human-computer interaction, information, systems, and theory.

interested in pursuing research should plan to finish the majority of the CS core (CS 103, 106, 107, 109, 110, and 161) by the end of the sophomore year.

the junior year students considering research can take one of the following sequences, depending upon your field of interest: Students doing summer research through CURIS should expect to take a course or two spring quarter to prepare them for their research project.
