University rank #147 (QS) Berlin, Germany
Artificial Intelligence is about creating algorithms to perform tasks in a way that we believe is intelligent. Modern AI algorithms play games, prove theorems, discover patterns in data, analyze complex sequences, make "life or death’’ decisions, optimize distributions , drive cars and play soccer etc. The Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course is offered by TU Berlin.

The primary goal of the Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course from TU Berlin is that students gain an understanding of some 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.
