Some of you may be interested in a small Special Topics seminar that Professor Minsky
 +
will be offering this spring. The seminar will be a collaborative, project-oriented
 +
seminar requiring a high degree of motivation, because you will closely collaborate with
 +
faculty on an actual research project.  You should be either familiar with Professor
 +
Minsky's work or, alternatively, other A.I. literature and eager to read up on
 +
Professor Minsky's work. If you are interested in participating, please send a short
 +
cover letter and a resume, which includes your programming experience, to
 +
minsky-seminar-interest@mit.edu
 +
 +
Attending the seminar won't preclude you from taking 6.868 this fall.

19 September 2013

The registrar has scheduled the 6.034 final for Thursday, 19 December, 9-12, Johnson.

18 September 2013

Clarification:

Quiz 1 is as originally scheduled, Wednesday, 25 September, 2013.

Quizzes 2, 3, and 4 are all delayed two days, from Wednesdays to Fridays:

25 October 2013 15 November 2013 6 December 2013

These changes were made so that we can use Walker as well as 10-250, making the quiz taking experience even more enjoyable. You will all have 10-250 for two quizzes and Walker for the other two.

12 September 2013

Lecture tomorrow, Friday, is a lightning review of basic search, from depth first to the role of extended lists. Some of you have seen this material more than once and may have other things to do. We will presume you know the material and quiz questions that focus on other material may involved it by way of comparisons.

9 September 2013

We have set up a mailing list for the TAs: 6.034-2013-staff@mit.edu

Announcement of New Center for Collaborative Research on Intelligence

5 September 2013

We have sent the following message to the registrar's class list, but as of this moment, you may not get it that way because the registrar has not yet got the entire class list in order:

There is no 6.034 class tomorrow, 6 September. The only Friday class in September is an optional lightning review of basic search on 13 September. Tutorials begin on Monday, 9 September. You will hear from your TA about where your tutorial will be held.

If you did not fill out a tutorial scheduling form on the first day, pick one up in the plastic bin outside my office door tomorrow (32-251) and leave in another, obvious plastic bin. Then, a TA will be in touch.


2 September 2013

In the fall semester of 2013, 6.034 will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 to 11. Most, but not all of Professor Winston's lectures will be on Monday and Wednesday. On many, but not all Fridays, you will learn about what is happening in the field right now from someone who is doing work right now in an area related to the Monday and Wednesday lectures.

Examinations will cover material from the traditional lectures as well as the right-now lectures. It will be extremely difficult to field questions on the right-now material if you do not attend the right-now lectures because the material is not yet in textbooks or, in many cases, published papers.

Tutorials will meet weekly on Monday and Tuesday. On the first day of class, you will fill out a form that will enable us to assign you to a tutorial.

There are no recitations.

6.034 is no longer offered in the spring term.

More details will emerge during the first lecture on Wednesday, September 4.
