Overview: Artificial intelligence is an extremely broad field with many subfields and applications to many disciplines. This course gives a broad survey of artificial intelligence, as opposed to focusing on any particular subfield of AI. The course will cover methods from search, optimization, probabilistic reasoning, and learning, among other topics. Homeworks show how to apply these techniques to relevant problems. The final project gives students the opportunity to apply AI techniques to their research projects.

Prerequisites: Significant programming experience, knowledge of data structures, undergraduate linear algebra.
