Artificial Intelligence & Society

Summer 2017 I taught a course on Artificial Intelligence & Society through Brown's STEM II Summer program. The course explored the central ideas of AI and the anticipated societal impacts of AI and automation.

CS8: A First Byte of Computer Science

CS8 presents a broad study of the big ideas of computer science, emphasizing the field's relevance to society and to other academic disciplines; it serves as an introductory CS course aimed at non-concentrators here at Brown. The course was designed by Prof. Michael Littman.

I taught CS8 at Brown during Spring 2016 with an excellent group of TAs. All slides from the course are available below:
