Advanced Topics in Artificial Intelligence
Module Title: Advanced Topics in Artificial Intelligence
Teaching hours: 39
Instructor: Professor Emmanouil Marakakis, School for Applied Technology, TEI of Crete
Course short description
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a broad field. It is concerned with getting computers to do tasks that require human intelligence. The aim of this course is to teach students the fundamental concepts and principles of AI as well as advanced techniques of AI. In addition, its aim is to teach the appropriate programming tools for developing AI applications which use advanced AI techniques, as well as to develop an appreciation for the engineering issues underlying the design and development of AI systems. The students are expected to get the required knowledge in order to be able to develop projects and to carry out research in AI.
