CS 440: Introduction to AI Homework 1 Due: Thursday, September 9th Your answers must be concise and clear. Explain sufficiently that we can easily determine what you understand. We will give more points for a brief interesting discussion with no answer than for a bluffing answer. AI Models 1. Suppose that we expect to filter spam messages from a mailbox. We want to build a model that can classify a message into a spam or a ham (non-spam). Consider using the features below: (1) The number of words in the message. (2) If the sender has sent a spam message before, the message is likely to be a spam by 90% accuracy. (3) If a text contains a frequently used spam phrase, the message is a spam by 70% accuracy. (4) Whether the message contains a picture or not. (5) Whether the sender is in the receiver’s contacts. (6) In the previous spams, the number of sexual words is 5.7 on average. Recall that a model is a stand-in, or an approximate, mathematically precise representation, for the real thing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
