CS607 : Artificial Intelligence

Course Overview

Course Synopsis

Artificial Intelligence is the study of the science of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs. In this field we try to understand human intelligence and after it we use computers to adapt (implement using computer programs) this intelligence. This subject contains concepts from many other subjects of computer science and it uses these concepts to give practical solutions for the benefit of human beings.

Course Learning Outcomes

After completing this course you should be able to:

  • Define that what is artificial intelligence and why it is important.
  • Analyze and apply any search strategy over the given problem.
  • Learn about some successful application of artificial intelligence.
  • Characterize and classify expert systems.
  • Design expert system.
  • Use CLIPS software for expert system development.
  • Examine fuzzy systems.
  • Research machine learning and planning.
