 LEARNING OUTCOMES Top
The module introduces the basic concepts in search and knowledge representation as well as to a number of sub-areas of artificial intelligence. It focuses on covering the essential concepts in AI. The module covers intelligent agents; uninformed/blind search: breadth-first search, uniform-cost search, depth-first search, depth-limited search, iterative deepening search; informed/heuristic search: greedy best-first search, A* algorithm; local search: hill climbing and simulated annealing; adversarial search: minimax algorithm and alpha-beta pruning; constraint satisfaction problems: backtracking search, constraint propagation, local search; logical agents: propositional logic, first-order logic, logical inference; uncertainty: Bayes’ rule, Bayesian inference, independence and conditional independence, Bayesian networks; machine learning: decision tree learning, naive Bayes classifier.
