1 G5AIAI Introduction to Artificial Intelligence Graham Kendall Course Introduction

2 G5AIAI Course Introduction You are a caveman (or woman) I travel back in time and bring you a Pentium IV PC and show you some of the things it is capable of doing. Question : Would you, as a caveman, consider the computer to be intelligent? Hands up if you think the computer is intelligent?

3 G5AIAI Course Introduction Now we are in the present day I show you the same Pentium III PC and show you some of the things it is capable of doing. Question : Would you, as a computer science student, consider the computer to be intelligent? Hands up if you now think the computer is intelligent?

4 G5AIAI Course Introduction We are still in the present day, but we are at the end of this lecture course. Just before I leave the final lecture, I peel away my face and reveal I am an android. As an android I have just delivered a 24 hour lecture course and answered all your questions. Question : Would you, as a computer science student, consider me to be intelligent? Hands up if you think I am intelligent?

5 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Introduction Course –Introduction to Artificial Intelligence Lecturer –Graham Kendall

6 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Introduction Web Page –http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~gxk/courses/g5aiai/ Second / Third Year Projects

7 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Context G5AIAI Introduction to AI G5BAIM Artificial Intelligence Methods G5BAIP Artificial Intelligence Programming D53DIA Designing Intelligent Agents

8 G5AIAI Course Introduction Who Can Attend? (This year) Introduction to AI –First/Second Year Option Artificial Intelligence Methods –Second/Third Year Option

9 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Introduction Last Years Course –Good Points Handouts/Notes Summary of Each Lecture Willingness to Answer Questions –Bad Points Speak Properly (Louder, Clearer, Faster, Slower) Did Not Summarise Lectures More Coursework Needed Feedback on Coursework Needed Course content was too much / too little

10 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Introduction Lectures –15 (ish) Lecture Times and Locations –Monday 13:00 (CTF-LT2) –Friday 11:00 (CTF-LT3) Assessment –25% Coursework –75% examination (2 hours)

11 G5AIAI Course Introduction Aims of the Course Define what we mean by AI (or at least give us a working definition for this course) Write AI programs that –Explore search spaces using both blind and heuristic search techniques –Implement Neural Networks (perceptron)

12 G5AIAI Course Introduction Aims of the Course This is very much a practical course. Although we will touch upon the philosophical issues we will not dwell on this area of AI. This course is more concerned with writing useful AI programs than discussing if a computer is intelligent or not.

13 G5AIAI Course Introduction Textbooks Artificial Intelligence – A Modern Approach (AIMA) (Russell/Norvig) Much of the material for this course is from this book. If you are going to buy a book, then get this one. (Web site has an amazon link)

14 G5AIAI Course Introduction Textbooks Artificial Intelligence (Rich/Knight) –This used to be the standard AI text book but AIMA is now taking its place – in my view

15 G5AIAI Course Introduction Textbooks Artificial Intelligence (Winston) –As for Rich/Knight

16 G5AIAI Course Introduction Textbooks Artificial intelligence : Structure and Strategies for Complex Problem Solving (Luger/Stubblefield)

17 G5AIAI Course Introduction Textbooks Computational Intelligence (Poole/Mackworth/Goebel) –As good as AIMA but came out later

18 G5AIAI Course Introduction Useful Reading The Essence of Artificial Intelligence (Cawsey)

19 G5AIAI Course Introduction Useful Reading Seven Methods for Transforming Corporate Data into Business Intelligence (Dahr/Stein)

20 G5AIAI Course Introduction Useful Reading Artificial Intelligence and Computer Games (Richard Bartle)

21 G5AIAI Course Introduction Useful Reading Computer Gamesmanship (David Levy)

22 G5AIAI Course Introduction Neural Networks The Essence of Neural Networks (Callan)

23 G5AIAI Course Introduction Neural Networks Neural Network (Davalo)

24 G5AIAI Course Introduction Neural Networks Fundamentals of Neural networks (Fausett)

25 G5AIAI Course Introduction Proposed Lecture Schedule See Web Site

26 G5AIAI Course Introduction Coursework Schedule Coursework –Is already available –It does involve programming –Closing date is 4 th December, but with an automatic weeks extension! –No further extensions

27 G5AIAI Course Introduction Examinations Examination Rubric –You are expected to answer one of the two questions from section A and three of the five questions from section B.

28 G5AIAI Course Introduction Are these AI?? Boids

29 G5AIAI Course Introduction Course Introduction Finished Now the hard work starts
