Artificial Intelligence is a class at Georgia Tech. It is notable for being completely different from the course description: learn how to code before taking this class, please. Please also learn calculus before taking this class, specifically partial derivatives.

Course Description

Intro to Artificial Intelligence begins with doing random math problems and coding in Python which no one knows how to do. Python will be taught later in the class but not soon enough. Once you learn to code in Python, you will program Finch robots. The robots are very bad and you will come to hate these robots. In the second to third week you will learn about how to make deep neural networks with back propagation. Half of the class will sleep through this lesson, and the other half will stare blankly at board understanding nothing. Only one kid will know what is going on. The class ends with a final project, done alone or in pairs. Good luck, you have three days to teach yourself how to make an AI. Copy and Paste is your only hope in this class. In 2019, this class was popular enough to merit two sessions per term, of which Session Two probably has no clue what they just read above because they had a different instructor.

  • "Crazy? I was crazy once. They locked me in a room. A rubber room. With rats. Rubber rats. I hate rats. They drive me crazy. (repeat)" - half the class driving poor Aerin, Katie, Paul, Kip, Noah, Ansh, and Dristi CRAZY (i was crazy once)
  • "If our class was in the Hunger Games, who do you think would win? I bet Andrew (with straight hair) and Scott would team up and stab the rest of us in the back." - Katie
