Weekly meetup for “Intro to AI”

October 5th, 2011 No comments

The free online version of the “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course (http://www.ai-class.com/) based on Stanford CS221 starts next week. As several members signed up for this course, we are going to be meeting up at the Hive on a weekly basis to watch the lectures and work through some of the homework. We’ll meet first on Wednesday, October 12th, at 6:30 PM, and the intention is to keep meeting each Wednesday at the same time for the 10 weeks that the course lasts (course schedule is here – it runs through the week of December 12th).

Lectures are supposed to appear online each week, and I’m told they’ll also be downloadable. I will try to download the videos ahead of time and have copies of them locally. Other than that, we’re just going to play things by ear – I’ve never done a course like this before, perhaps because no course I’m aware of has been done like this before. Something you can program on (i.e. a computer)  might be helpful to have. Quoth their website, “Programming is not required, however we believe it will be very helpful for some of the homework assignments. You may write code in any language you would like to (we recommend Python if you are new to programming) and your code will not be graded.” A textbook is not required but is supposedly helpful, and I think some people said they had older editions they could bring in.

If you’re taking the course, or you want to take it, please join us. You don’t need to be a Hive13 member. You don’t even need to be enrolled in the online course, for that matter – but it’s free and enrollment is open until October 9th, so you may as well.

Reverse Engineering 102, 2nd Semester

February 25th, 2011 2 comments

While feedback on the first run of the RE102 class comes in, I wanted to let people know that we will be offering a second run of the class.  Based on comments both on and off the site, it seems like we will have another full class.  I haven’t finalized on a date yet as I want to update the class a bit based on feedback from the first set of attendees; but the date will be decided and posted soon.  So here are some ways you can stay updated to catch the class announcement and register before it fills up:

  1. Follow @hive13 on Twitter
  2. Add the Hive13 RSS feed to your reader
  3. Use the Reload Every plugin and never take your eyes off the site (not recommended)

I can tentatively say that we are shooting for some time in March, but more details will come in the future.  Hope to see you there :)

Python Learning Night – 7 pm 9/23/2009

September 22nd, 2009 No comments

Since I am horrible at trying to talk thinks up, I will just copy in ChrisA’s description from the mailing list:

“This is outright theft of the hacklab.to “Python Newbie Night” event. One night a week (Wed. @7pm) we get together with electronic copies of “think python”, talk about a chapter, then write some code. We may skip around depending on the skill levels of those who are present. If the class format takes off we can do other languages as well (say java and C++). I would like to invite non-coders and non-members to the class, so tell your friends and relatives!” -ChrisA

So this Wednesday, September 9, 2009, we are having our first Python learning night at the Hive.  Bring yourself, a laptop and a friend.
