In this course, we will explore basic concepts and techniques in the
field of Artificial Intelligence and come face to face with the
challenges of building an "intelligent system." We will focus on
methods for search, knowledge representation, logical reasoning, probabilistic
reasoning, and machine learning.

Cheating Vs. Collaborating GuidelinesCollaboration is a very good thing. On the other hand, cheating is considered a very serious offense! Concern about cheating creates an unpleasant environment for everyone. If you cheat, you risk losing your position as a student in the department and the college. The department's policy on cheating is to report any cases to the college cheating committee. What follows afterwards is not fun. So how do you draw the line between collaboration and cheating? Here's a reasonable set of ground rules. Failure to understand and follow these rules will constitute cheating, and will be dealt with as per University guidelines.
