Course description
  • Knowledge-Based AI: Cognitive Systems
  • 7 weeks
  • The Core of Artificial Intelligence
  • This is a core course in artificial intelligence. It is designed to be a challenging course, involving significant independent work, readings, assignments, and projects. It covers structured knowledge representations, as well as knowledge-based methods of problem solving, planning, decision-making, and learning.
  • The class is organized around three primary learning goals. First, this class teaches the concepts, methods, and prominent issues in knowledge-based artificial intelligence. Second, it teaches the specific skills and abilities needed to apply those concepts to the design of knowledge-based AI agents. Third, it teaches the relationship between knowledge-based artificial intelligence and the study of human cognition.

  • A good course on computer programming such as CS 1332 or Udacity’s CS 101 is beneficial for students. An introductory course on Artificial Intelligence, such as Georgia Tech’s CS 3600 or CS 6601, is recommended but not required.
  • To succeed in this course, you should be able to answer ‘Yes’ to the following four questions:
  • See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
  • At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to accomplish three primary tasks. First, you will be able to design and implement a knowledge-based artificial intelligence agent that can address a complex task using the methods discussed in the course. Second, you will be able to use this agent to reflect on the process of human cognition. Third, you will be able to use both these practices to address practical problems in multiple domains.
