Advanced Topics in Artificial Intelligence - 1998

BGU Math & Computer Science Department

Description of the course

This course is one of the mini-project courses, of which 2 are required to meet the undergraduate project requirement. The goal here is to gain hands-on experience in implementing a program exhibiting some form of intelligent behaviour, using techniques learned in one of the AI-related courses.

Students participating in the course will be working in groups of up to 3 people, where each group implements an integral part of the project. The project for this semester is: agents operating in a simple simulated environment - a discrete-time version of the PANGO game (alternately - Philip Agre's PENGI variant).

Class hours are intended for initial material and problem domain presentation, as well as design and design review (first 3 weeks), mid-project progress and tests (2 weeks in the middle of the semester), and final integration and delivery (last 2 weeks of the semester). Other weeks will have no official class hours, but are allocated for close supervision of the course instructor, of the programs under developement.
