Re: Stanford: Introduction To Artificial Intelligence: Fall

If this were offered last year I'd jump all over it, but I'm taking my school's into AI course this year. Norvig co-authored what seems to be the intro AI textbook, though.

CS Student Resume

I'll be starting the third year of my BSc in computer science this fall and I'm feeling nervous about the following summer. I haven't worked as an intern or done a co-op job but it'll be necessary (for financial reasons) to get a real job after this year. The coding I've done so far in class has me ...

Re: Concurrent Functional Languages

I stopped considering Scala after looking at some code on their website, it just looks too much like Java. As much as I like Lisp, Clojure is out because I want to stay off the JVM. Erlang's concurrency just looks really simple but I think I'll dig into Haskell. It'll probably teach me more about fu...

Re: Deciding on a Linux Distro?

Ubuntu or Mint are extremely simple and easy to use, so you should consider them. I don't like them because it doesn't feel like Linux. You can run them without touching a terminal or having to use the command line. That's just not Linux. I've been using Arch for over a year and I love it. The insta...

Concurrent Functional Languages

Two years into my CS degree I've used Java almost exclusively (Racket, MIPS-32, and Prolog for some smaller classes). I've been using C for my own projects this summer and have worked in C++ before. I know I could use Java to explore concurrency/parallel programming but I see Java as something you u...

Re: Help with thesis topic selection

If you have interests and some expertise in other areas of science you could write on scientific computation or optimization for those areas.

Re: Best design for specialized hash table?

In the worst case, M = N, in the best case, M = 1. Shouldn't that be M = 0, no collisions in the best case? I need to write a hash table type that has N keys. These keys can be assumed to be random unsigned 32-bit integers. The keys are known upon creation of the hash table, but only at runtime (ie...
