Introduction to Artificial Intelligence - Summer
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is about creating algorithms to perform tasks in a way that we believe is intelligent. Robotics is about creating algorithms to make robots perform such tasks.
Modern AI & Robotics algorithms play games (e.g. chess), prove theorems (e.g. verification), discover patterns in data (e.g. explanations), analyze complex sequences (e.g. DNA), make 'life or death' decisions (e.g. matching organs to patients), optimize distributions (e.g. food, refugees, housings), drive cars (e.g. Tesla), play soccer and so on.
Prof. Toby Walsh
Dr. Martin Aleksandrov
Bachelor and Master students with an interest in AI and the following skills:
1. Basic programming skills: C++ or Java or PHP or Prolog (advanced programming skills are not necessary)
2. Basic LaTeX skills: a typesetting system
3. Basic knowledge: algorithms, mathematics.
Students who complete the course will have an understanding of some of the fundamental methods and algorithms of AI, and an appreciation of how they can be applied to interesting practical problems.
