UW CSE launches two new Coursera MOOCs

coursera logoWith Coursera MOOCs on Programming Languages and Computer Networks under our belts, we’ve just launched two new MOOCS:

The Hardware/Software Interface, taught by CSE professors Gaetano Borriello and Luis Ceze, examines key computational abstraction levels below modern high-level languages:  number representation, assembly language, introduction to C, memory management, the operating-system process model, high-level machine architecture including the memory hierarchy, and how high-level languages are implemented.

Computational Neuroscience, taught by CSE professor Raj Rao and Physiology & Biophysics professor Adrienne Fairhall, introduces students to basic computational techniques for analyzing, modeling, and understanding the behavior of cells and circuits in the brain.

An additional course, Introduction to Data Science, taught by CSE professor Bill Howe, will begin in May.
