CS 561: Artificial Intelligence Course overview: foundations of symbolic intelligent systems. Agents, search, problem solving, logic, representation, reasoning, symbolic programming, and robotics. Prerequisites: programming principles, discrete mathematics for computing, software design and software engineering concepts. Good knowledge of C++ and STL required for programming assignments. Grading: 20% for homeworks (4 homeworks, 5% each) 20% for programming projects (2 projects, 10% each) 30% for midterms (2 midterms, 15% each) + 30% for final (cumulative) 1 day late = 25% reduction in score 2 days late = 50% reduction in score NOTE: You have 1 week from getting a homework/project/midterm to get it reviewed if you feel it was wrongly graded 2 CS 561 - Lecture 2 - Macskassy - Spring 2010

CS 561 - Lecture 2 - Macskassy - Spring 2010 Last Time: Acting Humanly: The Full Turing Test Alan Turing's 1950 article Computing Machinery and Intelligence discussed conditions for considering a machine to be intelligent “Can machines think?”  “Can machines behave intelligently?” The Turing test (The Imitation Game): Operational definition of intelligence. Computer needs to possess: Natural language processing, Knowledge representation, Automated reasoning, and Machine learning Problem: 1) Turing test is not reproducible, constructive, and amenable to mathematic analysis. 2) What about physical interaction with interrogator and environment?
