Course Objectives The goal of this course is to provide students with a survey of different aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Be able to apply AI search models and generic search strategies.
  • By using Bayesian networks, be able to use the probability as a mechanism for handling uncertainty in AI.
  • Be able to design AI systems that use learning to improve their performance on a given task.
  • Be able to present logic as a formalism for representing knowledge in AI systems.
  • Be able to discuss on specific domains such as computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics.
Course Content This course provides an introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI). In this course we will study a number of theories, mathematical formalisms, and algorithms, that capture some of the core elements of computational intelligence. We will cover some of the following topics: search, logical representations and reasoning, automated planning, representing and reasoning with uncertainty, decision making under uncertainty, and learning.
