CPSC 433: Artificial Intelligence - Timetable

The following table gives the planned schedule for the winter semester for all lectures. You find also links to the two different formats of pdf files under the materials column (if a new file was needed for the lecture). Note that these files just contain the slides. It is highly recommended that you also take notes, because the content of the slides is rather condensed and might not be understandable without my explanations (and your notes regarding these explanations) in the lectures.
