Artificial Intelligence: Course Description

This OpenCourseWare surveys the fundamental theories and concepts of 'Artificial Intelligence' (AI), including repeated states, logic, uninformed search and heuristics. After finishing the basics, the class focuses on AI concepts as they relate to gaming strategies, including reasoning patterns, time limits and chance. Assignments have students writing and programming simple games. Students are provided with the problem, how performance is measured, the environment, agent actions (actuators) and sensors (what the agent can sense). Each assignment links to a specific concept (search, adversarial search and logic agent). A final project ties the course concepts together by requiring students to program an agent that goes on a scavenger hunt. Dixie State College of Utah Professor Curtis Larsen taught the original 'Artificial Intelligence' course through lectures.

The OpenCourseWare includes a textbook recommendation, assignments and examples. Download this OpenCourseWare at the artificial intelligence course page.
