CPE/CSC 480 F03 Artificial Intelligence Syllabus

General Information

Textbooks

The following textbook will be used in this course: There is a column in the course schedule indicating the chapters in the book that correspond to a topic discussed in class. Students are expected to read the respective chapters before the topic is covered in class. For further reading, here are some more suggestions: There are also a few books on more practical aspects of AI programming and intelligent agents; many of them, however, suffer from a somewhat cursory treatment of important issues, and are also a little out of date.

Lecture Notes

The PowerPoint slides used in class will be available to students from the bookstore, or through this Web page (e.g. via the course schedule).

Additional Material

Further material will be made available through handouts in class, and through pointers to relevant Web pages.

Grading Policy

Assignments 20%
Project 30%
Midterm 20%
Final Exam 30%
The following table gives an overview of the calculation of the grades. I reserve the right to change the formula used. Please note that the project consists of several parts which will be evaluated separately. The project will also be done in teams, and the performance of the team as a whole will be graded unless there is a clear disparity in the contribution of the individual team members. Should this be the case, I might ask for additional documentation like work sheets, email messages, or draft copies of documentation to evaluate individual contributions.
