The Module Description is a strict subset of this Syllabus Page.


Artificial Intelligence is the area of Computer Science which studies algorithms capable of problem solving and learning, particularly where the problems are challenging due to scale or uncertainty, and the algorithms are part of intelligent agents. In recent years AI systems have become increasingly prominent in society and industry, from world-beating Go programs to self-driving cars. This module will introduce fundamental concepts from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and provide experience applying these concepts to solve practical problems. The module will introduce knowledge representation, reasoning, search, and learning. It will cover algorithms that use both logical and probabilistic approaches.
