Easily one of the very best MOOCs I have ever taken. Sebastian Thrun brings an incredible eagerness to the topic and his examples are very well prepared. He dives right into the key topics of AI for robotics with great toy examples, allowing a newbie to quickly wrap their minds around the system. Then he scales up the problem a bit to add complexity, building up the complexity at a fair pace. At the end of each task you feel like you have accomplished something great.
Also, he pre-writes all the auxiliary code so you can focus on the core important code, not unnecessary plumbing.
