Artificial Intelligence Methods
Artificial intelligence has a unique place in science, sharing borders
with mathematics, computer science, philosophy, psychology, biology,
cognitive science and others. The aim of the course is to give a broad
overview of AI techniques, so that when students go into industry or
research, they will be able to choose the correct AI techniques for
the problems which arise.
There will be three main parts to the course: (1) Fundamentals - the
basic notions of AI, in particular search and knowledge
representation, and we'll apply this to game playing (2) Automated
reasoning - how to get a program to deduce new facts and prove things
for you (3) Planning - how an agent can take advantage of the structure
of a problem to construct complex plans of actions.
