Course description

Learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and apply them. Design intelligent agents to solve real-world problems including, search, games, machine learning, logic, and constraint satisfaction problems.

What do self-driving cars, face recognition, web search, industrial robots, missile guidance, and tumor detection have in common?

They are all complex real world problems being solved with applications of intelligence (AI).

This course will provide a broad understanding of the basic techniques for building intelligent computer systems and an understanding of how AI is applied to problems.

You will learn about the history of AI, intelligent agents, state-space problem representations, uninformed and heuristic search, game playing, logical agents, and constraint satisfaction problems.

Hands on experience will be gained by building a basic search agent. Adversarial search will be explored through the creation of a game and an introduction to machine learning includes work on linear regression.

What you’ll learn

  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and intelligent agents, history of Artificial Intelligence
  • Building intelligent agents (search, games, logic, constraint satisfaction problems)
  • Machine Learning algorithms
  • Applications of AI (Natural Language Processing, Robotics/Vision)
  • Solving real AI problems through programming with Python
