This course is an introduction to Artificial Intelligence. This is a big topic, so we won't cover everything that everyone taking the course is interested in. What we will cover is broadly all the material in the textbook with some additional topics that I happen to think are interesting and/or important. You can find more detail on what we will cover on the syllabus page.
