Course Description and Goals:
We will look at a broad range of techniques used in artificial intelligence. These will include search methods for problem solving, methods for using a knowledge base, planning algorithms, and machine learning methods. This course will combine theoretical principles as well as hands on practice using many of the techniques presented in class.
A portion of class time will be spent doing lab and project work. I will provide many of the software tools so that the programming will not be too overwhelming or burdensome but will allow you to solve some interesting AI problems. I will provide ample time for all graded work to be completed. I therefore expect all work to be turned in on time and will not accept late work. The course schedule is outlined on the website http://phoenix.goucher.edu/~jillz/cs340 and on goucherLearn. Check the schedule regularly for all due dates and and exam dates.
Turning in work that was produced from someone else as your own is subject to an Honor code violation. (See the Honor code for definition and disposition of academic dishonesty.)
