The content of the subject aims at introduction to the basic goals of artificial intelligence, its key methods and examples of most frequent practical applications. The subject overviews the basic techniques to develop generally intelligent systems and it introduces its selected concrete representants.

The topics contain methods of state space search, knowledge and its representation, automated logical reasoning with possible uncertainty, machine learning, distributed artificial intelligence or evolutionary algorithms. In the practical parts students get familiar with applications of knowledge-based, multiagent or robotic systems and data mining.


The students need to have previous knowledge of mathematical theory of probability.
