I was recently asked to teach compressed sensing to a crowd of buddying engineers. This is an interesting proposition as it parallels some of the questions I am getting directly in my mailbox, namely,
"Igor, I read some of these papers and watched some of the videos in the Big Picture and still don't know why I am doing this or how to apply it to my field".
The fascinating part of this exercise is really to think of how to deconstruct most of what I know into something that can be easily parsed to the person I was four years ago. Presentation and teaching evidently include some showmanship but what becomes important is synthesizing some of the concepts down to the point where most of your audience could listen in for ten minutes and have their ahah! moment. Here are the first draft slides of what that course would look like:.
Compressed Sensing: What is it good for ? (a course on inimaginable wonders and how to make them work for you)
I am wondering if this could fit in a ten minutes video a la Khan Academy.
