The unit provides an introduction to many AI sub-fields, including: expert systems, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, intelligent agents. Students will be exposed to state-of-the-art examples as well as emerging technologies and get practical experience of solving interesting problems in each of these sub-fields.
The unit covers the definition of Artificial Intelligence and its subfields; introduces foundational logic and knowledge representation; and considers social, ethical, and philosophical consequences of the theory and practice of AI. Students will learn different perspectives on the approach to creating AI, its purpose, and its validity.
The unit will highlight the increasingly important social and economic roles of AI and will feature guest lectures from research and/or industry experts to highlight current research directions and deepen students' understanding of specific topics.
