Standford University is offering two online courses you can join for
free and from all over the world:

This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning,
datamining, and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: (i)
Supervised learning (parametric/non-parametric algorithms, support
vector machines, kernels, neural networks). (ii) Unsupervised learning
(clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems, deep
learning). (iii) Best practices in machine learning (bias/variance
theory; innovation process in machine learning and AI). (iv)
Reinforcement learning. The course will also draw from numerous case
studies and applications, so that you'll also learn how to apply
learning algorithms to building smart robots (perception, control),
text understanding (web search, anti-spam), computer vision, medical
informatics, audio, database mining, and other areas.


A bold experiment in distributed education, "Introduction to
Artificial Intelligence" will be offered free and online to students
worldwide during the fall of 2011. The course will include feedback on
progress and a statement of accomplishment. Taught by Sebastian Thrun
and Peter Norvig, the curriculum draws from that used in Stanford's
introductory Artificial Intelligence course. The instructors will
offer similar materials, assignments, and exams.

Go for it!
