The development of intelligent systems has been a central quest of computer scientists for more than fifty years, with the objective of creating artificial systems that can solve problems traditionally achievable only by humans. This field is underpinned by a range of computational patterns and methods that cover problems such as searching, problem solving, reasoning, knowledge representation and learning. In this unit students will investigate, through a range of problem-based learning activities, a range of artificial and computational intelligence techniques that underpin modern, advanced intelligent systems such as autonomous vehicles, robotics, game-playing agents, and expert systems.
