Introduction to Artificial Intelligence, Certificate

  • Application Deadline
  • 28 days
University rank #147 (QS) Berlin, Germany
The Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI) course will give students an understanding of the fundamental methods and algorithms of AI, and an appreciation of how they can be applied to interesting practical problems, via a number of toy examples. The secondary goal of the course is that students learn how to conduct independently research, developing solutions to simple project tasks.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is about creating algorithms to perform tasks in a way that we believe is intelligent. Modern AI algorithms play games (e.g. chess), prove theorems (e.g. verification), discover patterns in data (e.g. explanations), analyze complex sequences (e.g. DNA), make ``life or death’’ decisions (e.g. matching organs to patients), optimize distributions (e.g. food, refugees, housings), drive cars (e.g. Tesla), play soccer, etc. 

Many of these AI applications use a number of introductory algorithms and techniques, some of which are covered in the course. Examples of such preliminary methods are Depth-First Search, Breadth-First Search, Minimax Search, Tree Pruning, Backtracking Search, Simulated Annealing, Graph Plan, Decision Tree Learning and Perceptron Learning. Thus, students who complete the course will have an understanding of some of the fundamental methods and basic algorithms of AI.

Programme Structure

This course has three components: lecture, tutorial and project classes. The lectures will introduce selected basic topics such as search, game playing, decision making, planning, machine learning, and probabilistic reasoning and resource allocation (i.e. social choice). The tutorials will allow students to apply algorithms on simple "toy" examples. The projects will provide  the students with the opportunity to develop a small solution in some area of AI: social choice, fair division, learning, planning, theorem proving, etc.
