Crowdsourcing and human computation have enabled systems that combine human intelligence and creativity with machine computation. It is now possible to "automate" tasks that could not previously be computed to adequate accuracy/quality, and yet would be inefficient to do with human labor alone. These methods are now used extensively in industry.
Some programming experience is expected.
As a rule-of-thumb, if you have contributed ≥1000 lines of your code to any single project, you should be able to learn anything you need for this class. This could be in any programming language (e.g., C, C++, Java, Python, etc.).
