Short course description

Course objectives This course provides an introduction to artificial intelligence from the perspective of robotics. Thus, the focus is on agent-based system design. Three parts are distinguished: reasoning in logic, problem solving and planning, inference with imperfect knowledge. Particular topics are: agents, logical inference, blind search, informed search, CSP, POP planning, Graphplan, fuzzy reasoning, Bayesian nets, dynamic Bayesian nets.

Students are expected to have the following background:

Course materials
Lecture notes are posted on the course's web page. Selected chapters from the textbook below are recommended as optional reading.

Marks and Grading

Assessment will be marked out of a hundred. Students are collecting assessment points. They come partly from a continuous assessment in the semester time (exercises and a midterm test) and from a final test. The assessment method assumes: There is an obligatory attendance of exercises and an optional attendance of lectures. Credits will be awarded to candidates who pass this course. The marks equate to local and ECTS grades as given below:
ECTS grade A B C D E F/FX
Local grade 5 4.5 4 3.5 3 2
Mark (Control & Robotics) 100- 91 90-81 80-71 70-61 60-51 50 or less
Mark (EMARO+) 100- 90 89-80 79-70 69-65 64-60 59 or less
