Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
Semester A 2002-2003 (Fall 2002)
(* Under Construction *)
BGU Computer Science Department
Description of the course
Artificial intelligence (AI) has recently regained the limelight, as the human
world chess champion was beaten by Deep Blue, a program written by a team
of researchers and programmers from IBM. True AI applications are also
on the rise, from expert systems for diagnosys and advice, through increasingly
intelligent robots, to intelligent and autonomous www agents.
This course deals with the issues of defining intelligence and rationality
in an agent, various methods of formalizing them, and
models for representing and using knowledge. In specific topics, mainly
search and logical reasoning, the course will focus all the way down to the
algorithm level, in order to provide some hands-on experience with programming
artificially intelligent agents.
