How to speak lecture tips from Patrick Winston ; Technically speaking : making complex matters simple( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technically speaking: Throughout his teaching career, Steven Rudich, Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, has sought to convey complex ideas through simple means that work with, not against, the capacities and limitations of his students. The challenge, of course, is to make such ideas clear without dumbing them down. In this video, Rudich demonstrates how this can be done. He stresses the importance of accessibility (knowing your audience), ambition (challenging them), and seduction (makiing them care), and illustrates each with memorable examples. Making complex matters simple is itself complex, but Rudich offers techniques and tools that make it possible

Learning structural descriptions from examples by Patrick Henry Winston( Book )

13 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research described centers on how a machine can recognize concepts and learn concepts to be recognized. Explanations are found in computer programs that build and manipulate abstract descriptions of scenes such as those children construct from toy blocks. One program uses sample scenes to create models of simple configurations like the three-brick arch. Another uses the resulting models in making identifications. Throughout emphasis is given to the importance of using good descriptions when exploring how machines can come to perceive and understand the visual environment. (Author)

Learning new principles from precedents and exercises : the details by Patrick Henry Winston( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much learning is done by way of studying precedents and exercises. A teacher supplies a story, gives a problem, and expects a student both to solve a problem and to discover a principle. The student must find the correspondence between the story and the problem, apply the knowledge in the story to solve the problem, generalize to form a principle, and index the principle so that it can be retrieved when appropriate. This sort of learning pervades Management, Political Science, Economics, Law, and Medicine as well as the development of common-sense knowledge about life in general. This paper presents a theory of how it is possible to learn by precedents and exercises and describes an implemented system that exploits the theory. The theory holds that causal relations identify the regularities that can be exploited from past experience, given a satisfactory representation for situations. The representation used stresses actors and objects which are taken from English-like input and arranged into a kind of semantic network. Principles emerge in the form of production rules which are expressed in the same way situations are. (Author)
