Course description and aims

Based on the basic knowledge gained through the course "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence", this course teaches advanced technologies of knowledge representation, inference mechanism and human interfaces.

The aim of this course is that students learn the theoretical basis and applied technologies to develop advanced intelligent systems. 

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will learn the following:
1. Deductive reasoning and logic programming
2. Advanced technologies of logic programming (Inductive reasoning, abductive reasoning, probabilistic reasoning and so on.)
3. Sequential analysis of signals.
4. Methods of document analysis
5. Method of interactive systems
6. Method of Human Interface.


knowledge representation, deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning, abductive reasoning, probabilstic reasoning, ontology,predicate logic, description logic, logic programming, probablistic model

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Every class consists of a lecture using the slides and the exercise. Students are required to download the materials of lecture and read them before the class.
