Unformatted text preview: 1 CS 561: Artifcial Intelligence Instructor: Prof. Laurent Itti, itti@pollux.usc.edu TA: Po-He Tseng, ptseng@usc.edu Lectures: M-W 2:00-3:20pm, OHE-122 Office hours: Mon 12:30 13:45, HNB-30A This class will use den.usc.edu - Up to date information - Lecture notes - Relevant dates, links, etc. Course material: [AIMA] Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach, by Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig. (3nd ed) 2 CS 561: Artifcial Intelligence Course overview: foundations of symbolic intelligent systems. Agents, search, problem solving, logic, representation, reasoning, symbolic programming, and robotics. Prerequisites: CS 455x, i.e., programming principles, discrete mathematics for computing, software design and software engineering concepts. Good knowledge of C++ and STL required for programming assignments. Grading: 25% for midterm + 25% for final + 50% for mandatory homeworks/assignments 3 Practical issues Class mailing list: will be setup on the DEN backboard system Homeworks: See class web page on blackboard Sep 8 HW1 out Sep 22 HW1 due Sep 29 HW2 out Oct 13 HW2 due Oct 20 HW3 out Nov 3 HW3 due Nov 8 HW4 out Nov 22 HW4 due Exams: Nov 1 midterm (in class) TBA final (room TBA) Academic Integrity Familiarize yourself with the USC Academic Integrity guidelines. Violations of the Student Conduct Code will be filed with the Office of Student Judicial Affairs, and appropriate sanctions will be given. Homework assignments are to be solved individually. You are welcome to discuss class material in review groups, but do not discuss how to solve the homeworks. Exams are closed-book with no questions allowed. 7 Why study AI? Search engines Labor Science Medicine/ Diagnosis Appliances What else? Why study AI? 9 What is AI? The exciting new effort to make computers thinks machine with minds, in the full and literal sense (Haugeland 1985) The art of creating machines that perform functions that require intelligence when performed by people (Kurzweil, 1990) The study of mental faculties through the use of computational models (Charniak et al. 1985) A field of study that seeks to explain and emulate intelligent behavior in terms of computational processes (Schalkol, 1990) Systems that think like humans Systems that think rationally Systems that act like humans Systems that act rationally 10 Acting Humanly: The 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. 11 Acting Humanly: The Turing Test Computer needs to possess: Natural language processing, Knowledge representation, Automated reasoning, and Machine learning Are there any problems/limitations to the Turing Test? 12...
