Learning objectives:
  To give the students the knowledge of fundamentals of artificial intelligence, namely knowledge of problem solving approaches, machine learning principles and general theory of recognitions. Students acquire base information about computer vision, natural language processing and expert systems.
  Problem solving, state space search, problem decomposition, games playing. Knowledge representation. AI languages (PROLOG, LISP). Machine learning principles. Statistical and structural pattern recognition. Fundamentals of computer vision. Basic principles of natural language processing. Basic principles of expert systems.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
Learning outcomes and competencies:
  Students acquire knowledge of various approaches of problem solving and basic information about machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing and expert systems. They will be able to create programs using heuristics for problem solving.
