For copies of lecture slides and information on the required reading see the notes page. For the assessed exercises, see the exercises page. Any other content will be added here as necessary. Please also make sure you check your Computer Science email account on a daily basis as important information will be sent to you by email.

Required Textbook

For most lectures in this module you will be set some required pre-reading. This reading will be taken from Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig, Third Edition. Waterstones on campus will have it in stock as it is part of the School of Computer Science reading list. The official webpage for the book also lists a number of e-book editions.

If you don't want to buy the book yourself you can find a small number of copies in the main library and school library.
