Description
Learning outcomes 

The student will:

  • Understand philosophy and history of artificial intelligence
  • Understand the concept of search problem and search space and can apply relevant problem solving techniques based on the search space at hand.
  • Know the theoretical basis of machine learning and can also apply in practice the machine learning algorithms introduced in this course
  • Recognize the ethics and open questions and challenges of future AI
 
Content 

The definition of philosophy and history of AI. The future and ethical questions in AI. Search space, problem solving and search techniques; among others: genetic algorithms. Machine learning: unsupervised, supervised and reinforcement learning and the most typical algorithms associated with these.

 
Modes of study 

Video lectures 20-24h, labs 7x2h, exam 4h. Independent work approximately 66-70h.

 
Teaching methods
