Course: Intro to Artificial Intelligence @ Udacity

Intro to Artificial Intelligence Course and Training Online - Udacity:
The original class that started "MOOC movement" is now, 3 years later, available again @ Udacity platfrom. It is the same, but it has changed also: it is not completely free anymore: videos are available for watching, but projects and guidance are $150 / month, for 4 months.

but trustworthy, coming from such great professors from Stanford and Google.
A great class!
