Free video Lectures Neural Networks
A while back I posted about SciVee, a site for posting videos of science presentations. Today my old neural-networks labmate Tal Tversky commented pointing me at VideoLectures, a similar site containing academic lectures. Although the site doesn’t seem to be explicitly intended for any one topic, the page of “top” lectures is dominated by talks in statistical machine learning. Skimming the page, I noticed talks by such notable names as Tom Mitchell (chair of CMU’s machine learning department), Usama Fayyad (former VP of Research and “chief data officer” at Yahoo), Michael Jordan (UC Berkeley), and William Cohen (CMU). Lots more, too.
In addition to ML and AI stuff, there are also talks by Tim Berners-Lee and Umberto Eco on the “Top Lectures” page.

Sometimes I like to throw in a handful of chopped Meyer lemon segments in for added flavor and texture, but be sure to remove all the seeds.
