The subject deals in depth with modern approaches and algorithms used in contemporary artificial intelligence. Students will be introduced to advanced problem-solving techniques based on search and inference. A comprehensive overview of formal systems for problem modeling, related solving algorithms, and their practical applications will be presented. Emphasis will be placed on logical reasoning in artificial intelligence, which provides various guarantees, such as the completeness of the decision process or the precise justification of the decision. The lecture is based on the classical textbook of artificial intelligence . The extra material on satisfiability, constraint programming, automated planning and robotics can be found in specialized textbooks , , , and . Czech textbooks  are a suitable study material for the lecture as well.
Background from BI-ZUM: Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence is assumed.
