During this last semester(8th) I took GIS(geographic information systems) as one of the elective from Applied Mechanics system. In GIS ma’am told everyone to give to seminar presentation on some topic which will be considered for 30% weightage.
I searched over the Internet for various topics and at one of GIS website i found the topic “Decision support system for Transportation Engineering” which later I found to be more mathematical than presentable. During that time I went to koorg for the trip with friends, so this topic came into mind – “GIS in Tourism”. So finally I got a good topic and collected information for it on Internet. My seminar was better than my expectations 🙂
My presentation can be downloaded from following link
During Sept-Dec 2011 a lot of people enrolled for free stanford online courses. There were three courses Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Database Management. I successfully completed the Machine learning course, popularly known as ml-class.
Stanford people also planned to launch as much as 16 free online courses in duration of Jan – Apr 2012. Some of which are ml-class(again), algorithm design, human computer interaction etc.
But due to some internal problems course which were starting in January are not started yet and there is no particular information about Feb and March courses.
But there is some relief for people who wanted to attend Human-computer-interaction and algorithm design courses. All the video for these courses are already available at following link
Apart from these two course there are other free courses available at above website for studying as per your interest like Practical Unix, Web Application, Database management, machine learning(advance version which also includes ml-class videos) and few more.
You can directly go to site and view the videos. Reply to this post if you want to download those videos, I’ll tell you the way.
Now many stanford online courses are started and course material are available at the course websites.
Game-theory, algorithm-design, cryptography, model-thinking, natural-language-processing, SAAS and probabilistic-graphical-models are up. You can check the list of courses and their links at
The link for downloading the videos and other resource materials are available at respective course websites.
Hey all(i didn’t invite anyone yet but just for formality…lol)
