Taking this course from Sebastian was a pleasure. To start with he is exceedingly qualified to teach it. He was the director of Stanford's artificial intelligence lab and his team was the first to complete the 2005 DARPA grand challenge with their self driving car Stanley. He went on to lead the development of the Google self driving car.
In this course you'll learn the core algorithms that power Google's self driving car. And you'll learn directly from the source. "That's pretty cool!" as Sebastien would say. The passion and enthusiasm that Sebastien has for the subject comes across in the videos and is infectious.
The course is broken down into short video segments generally not more than 5 minutes. Plenty of quizzes and programming assignments are dispersed to keep you engaged and make sure you're learning.
Growing up I was a huge fan of Legos and my favorite thing happened to be building cars. I love machine learning, I love designing things, I love building things, and if you're like me you'll love this course.
My idea to make this course even cooler - create some kind of virtual world where students can deploy their own code to test in a simulated self driving environment. Perhaps even create a race or competition. Or alternatively, provide instructions for creating your own miniature self driving car for testing in your living room.
