Description of the course

According to Calendar:
An examination of the objectives, key techniques and achievements of work on Artificial Intelligence in Computer Science.

According to me:
An overview on the different fields of AI and its history, an introduction to knowledge representation and knowledge processing, especially search as the key problem solving technique and the different search paradigms, and an overview (with some case studies) of the areas planing, learning and cooperation (this only if time permits).

Computer Science 313 and one of 349 or 449
Note that a basic understanding in logic is definitely required for this course (Philosophy 279 or 377 are prerequisites of CPSC 349 and 449, therefore they are not explicitly mentioned in the calendar)! Although we will introduce the basic concepts of how to process and solve problems described in logic in this course, knowing what logical formulas, propositions and calculi are and how a problem can be represented as a set of formulas is a must!


The main goals of the tutorials will be to help you in more deeply understanding the concepts presented in the lectures (providing more examples) and with your assignment.

to an explanation of the assessment of the students taking the course.
