CS440/ECE448 Artificial Intelligence, Spring 2024¶
This course provides an introductory survey of concepts and techniques in artificial intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to decide, learn, plan, understand, communicate, perceive, and act; AI is the creation of machines that do these things. This course gives a one- or two-week introduction to each of the seven aspects of intelligence, with pointers to key mathematical concepts, articles and books.
This course assumes that you have taken data structures (CS225) and random variables (e.g., CS 360, ECE 313).
The textbook is Poole and Mackworth, Artificial Intelligence, 3rd edition.
You will also need a reference for Python, which we will use to write the MPs. A good place to start is the the Python Tutorial.
