Description Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the area of Computer Science which studies algorithms capable of problem solving and learning. In recent years AI systems have become increasingly prominent in society and industry. This module will introduce fundamental concepts from AI and Machine Learning, covering knowledge representation, search, optimisation and learning. It will provide experience applying these concepts to solve practical problems.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • demonstrate an understanding of traditional AI approaches
  • demonstrate an understanding of the core principles of Optimisation and Machine Learning
  • demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between basic concepts of univariate differentiation and techniques of AI
  • apply core principles of artificial intelligence to solve problems
