Successful participation in the course yields 9 ECTS. The course consists of oral lectures, 2*90 minutes per week, as well as exercises that will be supervised in tutorial groups (90 minutes/week). All lectures and tutorials will be held in English.
The lectures will normally be held Mondays 16:15--17:45 and Tuesdays 14:15--15:45. There may be some exceptions, in day of the week, time, and/or place. Exact details will be made available in the "Course Calendar".
Registration for the course/exams is in HISPOS as usual (contact Evelyn Kraska in case of questions). If you have difficulties registering, or wish to change tutorials, please send an email to Daniel Höller. Note that, for changing the tutorial group, you need a switching partner. You can try to find a switching partner via the "Offtopic" Forum.
Course Material. For most lectures, there will be two kinds of slides, pre-handouts and post-handouts. Pre-handouts do not contain the answers to questions asked during the lecture sessions, and do not contain the details for examples worked during the lecture sessions. The post-handouts do contain all this, and correct any bugs. The pre-handouts are made available one day before the lecture sessions on each chapter, the post-handouts are made available directly after the lecture sessions on a chapter are finished.
Most of the course follows the standard AI text book by Russel and Norvig (RN). HOWEVER, several chapters do NOT follow that book one-to-one, and some do not follow it at all. The ground truth throughout the course are the results as stated in the post-handouts.
