MUST WATCH: Why AI Professor Sebastian Thrun Gave Up Tenure At Stanford To Provide Free Education Online

24 Jan

Access to high-end online education from elite institutions like Stanford, MIT, and Harvard is literally changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world, and watching Professor Thrun talk about his experience teaching Stanford’s AI class online just sends chills all over my body.


I, myself, am the beneficiary of this incredible initiative from Stanford. I can now program thanks to Stanford’s CS106A, and I will be taking the Berkley Agile Development course this coming February. I couldn’t be more excited about the state of global education right now. Happy learning to all the hungry people out there!
