[recommended] Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach (3rd Edition) by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig

A second-level course in artificial intelligence. Topics discussed will be taken from the areas of knowledge representation, logic and logic programming, pattern-directed inference, reasoning with uncertain or unreliable knowledge, natural language processing, computer vision, machine architecture, and programming languages for artificial intelligence.

Prerequisite: Computer and Information Science 7410X [716X] or a course in artificial intelligence.

Office Hours:
I'll be around right before and right after class. Also, by appointment.

There will be several projects (ie: homeworks).

Due to the size of the class, lets see if we can do without.

In This Class:
Peer cooperation is very encouraged, however, everyone must submit their own work. You will be expected to answer detailed questions about your assignments/projects. (i.e.: if you didn't write them, I'll know.)

Academic Integrity: The faculty and administration of Brooklyn College support an environment free from cheating and plagiarism. Each student is responsible for being aware of what constitutes cheating and plagiarism and for avoiding both. The complete text of the CUNY Academic Integrity Policy and the Brooklyn College procedure for implementing that policy can be found at this site: If a faculty member suspects a violation of academic integrity and, upon investigation, confirms that violation, or if the student admits the violation, the faculty member MUST report the violation.

This means that if you cheat on a test or an assignment, I must file a report which will initiate academic penalties.

Attendance is not mandatory (I don't need a doctors note!), but highly recommended. [you must attend at least a few times in the first six weeks, or you will be dropped from the class with a WU grade]. Also, it would be very difficult to pass the class without regular attendence; you are responsible for catching up if you miss class (for any reason). That being said, if you hardly ever show up (miss >= 4 classes) don't expect to get anything but a WU grade.

All projects, assignments, homeworks, etc., will be submitted via email (subject line: "CISC 7412X HW#"). Do not print out the assignments - they will promptly be trashed.

Tentative grade breakup: If we manage to avoid tests, the tentative breakup is ~10% class participation, ~90% projects/homeworks.
