In the fall of 2011, Peter Norvig taught a class with Sebastian Thrun on artificial intelligence at Stanford attended by 175 students in situ — and over 100,000 via an interactive webcast. In this TED talk video, Professor Norvig shares what he learned about teaching to a global classroom. And explains how they attempted to make it all seem like personal tutorials.
Peter Norvig is a leading American computer scientist, expert on artificial intelligence and the Director of Research at Google Inc.
