The programming projects in this course are based on those from http://ai.berkeley.edu/project_overview.html. This link is provided for reference only as our projects may differ.
Your grade will be 45% programming assignments, 20% midterm, 35% final exam, class participation.
Each student has two penalty-free late days for the whole quarter. All other late submissions will be penalized 10% of the maximum grade per day.
Assignments will be done individually unless otherwise specified. You may discuss the subject matter with other students in the class, but all final answers must be your own work. You are expected to maintain the utmost level of academic integrity in the course.
It is encouraged that you discuss your ideas with each other and consult online sources to better understand the material. However, your code must be written entirely by yourself. As a rule, you should never look at or run anyone else's code for the assignment, whether the code was written by someone currently in the class, or someone who took it previously, even at another university. Reading pseudocode for generic algorithms (like alpha-beta pruning or A* search) is perfectly OK. If you use a source very closely, for example, converting a pseudocode implementation of A* to python, academic integrity demands that you cite the source (in a comment). You will not be penalized for this; on the contrary, the citation may help us to understand why your implementation is so similar to someone else's, in case they use and cite the same source. We do compare everyone's projects to each other and to past submissions to detect logical redundancy. When two assignments are too similar to have occurred by chance, we have to look into whether something improper occurred. These investigations are not fun for anyone involved. If you have questions, please ask!
