MIT 8.S50 IAP 2019
Taught by Prof Frank Wilczek Herman Feshbach Professor of Physics (TAed by Neoperceptions team)
1:00pm -5:00pm on TR Room: 44-013
Course description This will be project-based course centering on simple technology for expanding perception (especially color perception). We will emphasize skill acquisition through hands-on experience. The course will begin with lectures on lectures on perception theory and, in parallel, assignments involving Arduino and python programming. Students will then choose a project to pursue through a Sprint process, leading to prototype construction and testing. Coming out of the course, you will have acquired basic understanding of Python programming, awareness of the available libraries and software tools, basic understanding of Arduino capabilities and programming, basic understanding of hyperspectral imaging, data formats, and information processing, basic awareness of available sensors, and basic understanding of the Sprint process and use of SLACK channels – and made something interesting.
