IMT1031 Fundamental Programming

On the basis of

IMT2021 Algorithmic Methods

Expected learning outcomes

On successful completion of the module, students will be able to

  • Understand and evaluate various core techniques and algorithms of AI, namely agent technology, informed and uninformed tree and graph search algorithms, various learning techniques including artificial neural networks, decision tree learning and evolutionary algorithms, logic and planning techniques and algorithms, knowledge representation, the meaning of concepts such as intelligence, reasoning, and making inferences.
  • Identify different uses and applications of AI techniques and algorithms, from neuroscience, understanding brain to game development, to web technologies and secure system designs.
  • Implement several of the algorithms on the mobile robots. The students will also enhance their programming skills in a preferred language of their own and in Java by learning to program a mobile robot.
  • Improve programming skills through the programming of mobile robots. Programming mobile robots help with connecting the theory learnt in class with the practical use of it.
  • Evaluate the run-time and memory complexity of several AI algorithms, and practice with creating better algorithms.
