This class was tough.
I would recommend the course because it broadly covers the field of Artificial Intelligence. I wish the professor had spent more time covering topics that were more relevant to the bleeding edge of Artificial Intelligence today such as Machine Learning and Deep Learning. This is a good survey course for covering the history of AI and scraping the surface of some of the modern theories being implemented in the technology industry by companies such as Facebook and Google.
The highlights of this course, for me, were the weeks we spent studying Neural Networks because that subject is a great passion for me.

Advice for students:
I would advise that students planning on taking this course preview this course with online courses more relevant to today's AI implementations and tools so that you can see the enormous demand there is for people with AI and Machine Learning skill set. Knowing this will be extremely motivational when you're spending many hours on the programming assignments. Additionally, since this is a survey course, if you're interested in this field I would highly recommend taking a Machine Learning course online through Coursera so that you can refine the knowledge from this class into something more relevant to today's AI skill set.
