Introduction to Computer Vision | Udacity
Offered at Georgia Tech as CS 6476
This course provides an introduction to computer vision including fundamentals of image formation, camera imaging geometry, feature detection and matching, multiview geometry including stereo, motion estimation and tracking, and classification. We’ll develop basic methods for applications that include finding known models in images, depth recovery from stereo, camera calibration, image stabilization, automated alignment (e.g. panoramas), tracking, and action recognition. We focus less on the machine learning aspect of CV as that is really classification theory best learned in an ML course.

Udacity Says It Can Teach Tech Skills to Millions, and Fast - The New York Times
Now Udacity, a four-year-old online teaching start-up, believes that after years of trial and error, it has hit on a model of vocational training that can be scaled up to teach millions of people technical skills. Udacity’s founder, Sebastian Thrun, a specialist in artificial intelligence at Stanford University who once ran Google X, the search company’s advanced projects division, said that the “nanodegree” program that the firm created last year will result in vastly lower education costs and wider accessibility. Early data suggests the program is efficient and reliably results in new jobs — including for Ms. Marchisio, who began working as a software developer at Google after taking Udacity’s “full-stack developer” course this spring.

The nanodegree works like this: Last year, Udacity partnered with technology companies to create online courses geared toward teaching a set of discrete, highly prized technical skills — including mobile programming, data analysis and web development. Students who complete these courses are awarded the nanodegree, a credential that Udacity has worked with Google, AT&T and other companies to turn into a new form of workplace certification.

I spoke to several students who described Udacity as life-changing. One was Dan Haddigan, 28, who graduated from art school with a degree in printmaking and worked for several years at an art gallery in Philadelphia. Last year, he contemplated going back to graduate school for art but heard about Udacity and decided coding was more practical. The nanodegree was challenging. For several months, he said, “I would wake up, work on projects for Udacity, go to work at the gallery, come home, then try to get more work on my projects.” The course — in web development — took about five months, costing him $500. But Mr. Haddigan said the work proved rewarding. After finishing his degree, he found a listing for a job at IntuitSolutions, a web development agency.

Million-student campus not far off, UNSW v-c predicts | Times Higher Education (THE)
Universities might welcome as many as 1 million students to their campus in a typical year, with hundreds of thousands of older learners taking courses lasting just one or two weeks, a vice-chancellor has predicted.

Ian Jacobs, president and vice-chancellor of the University of New South Wales, told a symposium on the future of teaching organised by King’s College London that higher education institutions would be far busier by 2035, when hybrid “online-offline” courses would be embraced by lifelong learners.

UNSW’s Sydney campus now has about 55,000 students, but Professor Jacobs said that he expected as many as 1 million students to be visiting the university in a single year within a few decades

predicted that young, full-time undergraduates would be joined on campus by older learners taking courses “in short one- or two-week bursts”, with further learning taking place via new online offerings for professionals.

UNSW will invest A$77 million (£44.6 million) over the next five years to create about 660 online-only and blended learning courses, he said.

Reflecting on his time as a student, Professor Jacobs said that certain tutorials and seminars stood out as outstanding learning experiences and these, he believed, could be replicated as one- or two-week offerings for a mass market.

“If you could scale this, you could compress these things – and find plenty of other things – that could work well as a campus experience,” he said.

“You might just have about 30,000 extra students from Australia, but another 200,000 or so students from other countries visiting to update their knowledge,” he speculated.

Professor Jacobs claimed that a doubling of knowledge in medical science was now occurring roughly every 10 weeks, whereas such a doubling took place only every three and a half years in 2010, and every 25 years in 1950.

“Given the rate at which knowledge is expanding, and how jobs are changing, I believe that student numbers can be expanded in this way,” he said.
