Artificial Intelligence has made its way into our everyday language and news cycles. Yet, it is still hard to define what exactly an AI is. In this course you will learn why. We will focus on several techniques associated with AI and give you an understanding of how they work and which kinds of problems they can solve. You will learn Planning, Optimization, Reasoning and Machine Learning. We will visit each of these fields based on practical tasks using the programming language Python.

Course leader

Frank Trollmann studied at the TU Berlin and has worked in several AI related research projects at DAI-Labor (TU Berlin). After finishing his PhD he became the coordinator of the research group on Self-Adaptive Systems.

Target group

The course is directed at intermediate beginners in Software Engineering and Computer Science.
