2014 Edition
Updated 1 February 2015

Alas, the 2014 edition of 6.803/6.833, The Human Intelligence Enterprise, is oversubscribed. Because of the discussion-oriented nature of the subject, there will, I regret, have to be a lottery following the first day of class, so you should have a back up plan in case the dice roll the wrong way.

To determine whether you want to enter the lottery, you should read the prospectus at http://courses.csail.mit.edu/6.803/prospectus. Then, if your interest holds, you should attend the first class on Wednesday.

Note that:

Other AUS subjects offered in the coming semester:

6.141J Robotics: Science and Systems I
6.802J Foundations of Computational and Systems Biology
6.813 User Interface Design and Implementation

Also, with permission of your advisor, a seriously difficult GradH class can be used as an AUS:

6.437 Inference and Information

Also, you may be able to petition for the following, which I particularly recommend as of interest for those students generally interested in the same sort of things I am interested in:

6.049J Evolutionary Biology: Concepts, Models and Computation Berwick et al. A computational account of how we evolved
6.945 Large-scale Symbolic SystemsSussman Elegance in programming
15.668 People and OrganizationsKochan All about how to be productive, and useful, in your first job by learning negotiation, leadership, and teamwork skills.
