Given that I’m quite invested in AI safety, and Stuart Russell is no doubt distilling decades of experience into 300 pages, this felt important enough for me to study.

Learning AI in ten years

I recently stumbled upon an incredible functional computer science curriculum [1], and saw the value in documenting my progress. In this ever-growing, on-the-fly, and infinite game article, I’ll give my roadmap of what I’m going through, went through, what worked for me, what didn’t, and hopefully encourage some others who are captivated by artificial intelligence, but have been intimidated by the technical barrier to entry.
