Artificial Intelligence (AI) is behind your smart phone’s intelligent personal assistant, driverless cars, robots, government fraud detection systems, and image recognition algorithms. This course introduces students to core techniques and applications of AI using primarily symbolic methods in an agent-oriented paradigm.

Classes are a mix of discussions of theory, core concepts, and hands-on problem-solving exercises. Course activities rely heavily on group work. During the course, students implement simple search-based agents solving transportation tasks in a virtual environment.
