Course Objectives The objective of this course is to introduce basic concepts and different approaches to Artificial Intelligence (AI) (including symbolic and non-symbolic ones). It also aims at extending the computer engineering vision of the student, and evaluating the possible research potentials of the students on the subject.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Design an agent for a given problem
  • Understand the problems and principles of searching for solution. Distinguish among variety of search algorithms.
  • Comprehend first order logic and inference procedure in finding solutions to logical problems.
  • Describe the fundamentals for machine learning.
Course Content Intelligent agents, problem solving by searching, informed/uninformed search methods, exploration, constraint satisfaction problems, knowledge and reasoning, first-order logic, knowledge representation, learning, selected topics: neural networks, natural computing.
