Course description and aims

To students who have studied Introduction to Artificial Intelligence, this course teaches advanced topics about analysis and design of intelligent systems based on methodologies of artificial intelligence. Through these, this course aims to train students to understand advanced theories and techniques for developing practical systems.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to analyze and design 1) fuzzy set theory and decision-making process, 2) ontology, 3) brain informatics of learning mechanism, 4) co-creation system, and 5) agent based modeling by using artificial intelligence technology.


Fuzzy Set Theory, Ontology, Braininformatics, Co-creation System, Agent Based Modeling

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

At every class, topics specified in the course schedule are explained using practical examples. Also, students are given exercise problems related to the lecture given that day to solve. To prepare for a class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
