Computer Science 255. Artificial Intelligence

The idea of a thinking machine captivates us as a culture and our long struggle toward an approximation of that goal has pushed us to examine what underlies our own thought processes and how we may create problem-solving models based on different definitions of what constitutes "intelligence." This course examines the fundamentals of artificial intelligence, including searching for problem solutions, game playing, logical reasoning, task planning and robotics. We also explore the advanced topics of natural language communication between man and machine and the challenge of designing a machine that learns from experience.
