Artificial intelligence is the science that studies and develops methods of making computers more /intelligent/. The focus of this course is on core AI techniques for search, knowledge representation and reasoning, planning, and designing intelligent agents. The course also aims to give an overview of the historical, philosophical, and logical foundations of AI.
Learning OutcomesAfter completing this course, students should be able to:
- Identify problems that are amenable to solution by AI methods, and which AI methods may be suited to solving a given problem.
- Formalise a given problem in the language/framework of different AI methods (e.g., as a search problem, as a constraint satisfaction problem, as a planning problem, etc).
- Implement basic AI algorithms (e.g., standard search or constraint propagation algorithms).
- Design and perform an empirical evaluation of different algorithms on a problem formalisation, and state the conclusions that the evaluation supports.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
WorkloadTwenty-two one-hour lectures, six tutorials and four laboratory sessions.
