Younes was born and raised in Morocco. He currently teaches Artificial Intelligence on campus and online at Stanford University. He has worked on Coursera's #1 Course: Machine learning and #1 Specialization: Deep Learning. Younes co-created 3 Artificial Intelligence courses for graduate students at Stanford.
Current Role at Stanford
Instructor in Computer Science:
- Primary Instructor of CS229A: Applied Machine Learning
- Primary Instructor of CS93: Teaching Artificial Intelligence
- Course Advisor of CS230: Deep Learning
Instructor of CS229A: Applied Machine Learning, Stanford University
Younes created and teaches this graduate applied machine learning class with Andrew Ng. He designed problem sets, built graders, built assignments, prepared section content, wrote exams, and designed rubrics for grading final papers. This course emphasizes practical skills, and focuses on giving students skills to make these AI algorithms work. Learning techniques including supervised learning algorithms (logistic regression, linear regression, SVM, neural networks/deep learning), unsupervised learning algorithms (k-means), anomaly detection, and recommender systems. The class has had hundreds of enrollments since it was first created in 2018.
Instructor of CS93: Teaching Artificial Intelligence, Stanford University
Younes created this class for graduate students who are TA-ing an AI course. This course prepares new AI section leaders to teach, write, and evaluate AI content. In class, students evaluate final projects individually and as a group. They have discussions criticizing papers and assigning grades to them. They analyze and solve discussion session problems on the board, explain algorithms like back propagation, and learn how to give constructive feedback to students. Focus is on teaching skills, techniques, and final projects grading.
Artificial Intelligence Lab Member, Stanford University
Younes created content for the most popular AI course in the world (Machine Learning) taken by millions of people. Younes wrote notes, designed and improved the assignments (twelve assignments) and built auto-graders to grade millions of submissions in real time.
Course Advisor for CS230: Deep Learning, Stanford University
Younes created this course with Andrew Ng and Kian Katanforoosh. Younes gives advice on the syllabus and serves as a judge at the end of the quarter to give the best paper award. The course has had more than 1000 student enrollments since it was first offered in Fall 2017.
