Prerequisite Knowledge

This program requires experience with linear algebra, statistics, and Python (including object-oriented programming).See detailed requirements.

  • Constraint Satisfaction Problems

    Use constraint propagation and search to build an agent that reasons like a human would to efficiently solve any Sudoku puzzle.

    Build a Sudoku Solver
  • Search, Optimization, and Planning

    Build agents that can reason to achieve their goals using search and symbolic logic—like the NASA Mars rovers.

    Build a Forward Planning Agent
  • Adversarial Search

    Extend classical search to adversarial domains, to build agents that make good decisions without any human intervention—such as the DeepMind AlphaGo agent.

The program was great, but it would be better for me if more advanced lectures were provided. I love the way that the projects were going, which helped me a lot!

EPIC!. I have learnt so many things along the way. Most importantly, How to deal with python dictionaries :P (They are everywhere!). Thanks for this experience!

Rama Krishna J.

This has been fantastic experience, I get to learn more about AI and AI algorithms and continue to build application on this platform.
