Course Introduction of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is a subject to deal with human intelligence, intelligent behavior and regular pattern, including study, interpretation and simulation. Its main task is to establish a theory of intelligent information processing, and then to design a computer system which can show some intelligent behavior similar to human. This course requires student to master the basic principles of artificial intelligence and get to know its basic techniques such as knowledge representation, search and advanced search technology.
The content of this course contains the basic principle and method of symbolic artificial intelligence based on macro artificial, whose purpose is to make undergraduate student understand the knowledge representation method based on production system and logic. What’s more, understanding the basic search theory, method and technology which is suitable for machine under the representation of production system is also required. Additionally, the resolution reasoning theory, method and technology suitable for machine reasoning based on both propositional logic and first-order logic need be understood.
This course is open in the second semester of the third year and plan to allocate 32 class hours. Its prerequisite course includes other courses such as discrete mathematics, data structure, basic program design and algorithm analysis and design.
