Introduction to Boolean Algebra & Information Theory: A Twelve Week Course

without comments

As I’ve been posting about, I’ve been working to learn more about information theory, to bridge my way to learning Bayesian analysis techniques along with other machine learning techniques.   While at first I was only considering having a self-study group, I have come to believe that the first portion of this learning could be at a high school level (albeit advanced).  So I am now planning on offering these topics as a class, where we will meet once a week, in the evening, probably on Thursdays at around 5:30.   I have created a Moodle class that will have all the topics (you can log in as a guest to get in for right now).  This class will be free, although if you are not an HCCS student (and if you have a high school diploma already, you really can’t be an HCCS student), then there won’t be any credit you earn.  Although, if we do what I plan, and continue on to more rigorous work, we would have the potential for credit through LearningCounts.
