Dear students,

we have spotted and fixed a mistake in practical sheet 3, exercise 2. In particular, constraint 4 now says:

4. Exactly one store has all 3 types of items snacks.

Additionally, we made a clarification regarding property (b):

(b) there is (at least) one snack sold by both Store 2 and 3

Please be aware of these changes. The exercise instruction has been changed accordingly in the current CMS revision.

Dear students,

I apologize for so abruptly ending the video stream of the lecure on Monday, but, unfortunatelly, my laptop suddenly died. In the last 10 minutes of the lecture we talked about some basic compilations of PDDL tasks. You can find short notes on this part on the last page of the whiteboard pdf in CMS. However, this part will not be part of the final exam, and I'll go over it again quickly at the beggining of the next lecture, which will be on Monday June 20 due to the public holiday this Thursday.

The remaining three lectures on planning will continue to be held in a hybrid form, but if you want to ask any questions you need to come in person to the lecture hall.

Dear all,

YouTube sent me this email today:

"

Our team has reviewed your content, and we think you may need to make changes to make sure it doesn't violate our spam, deceptive practices and scams policy. In the meantime, we've made the following content private:
 

Video: AI 2022 -- Lecture 11
 

We haven’t applied a strike to your channel, and if you make changes, or if you think we've made a mistake, you can request to make your content public again. However, there may be some instances where YouTube keeps your content private.
 
What "locked as private" means
 

Content locked as private won't appear on your channel or in search results, and it won't be visible to other users. Learn more about how this works.

So, if you're wondering why you cannot access the video, that's why.

What can I say (other than rolling my eyes). I'm trying to fix it.

Hi all,

it may be that some of you did not find the lecture zoom link this morning as you expected it to be in the Timetable.

Sorry, I added the link to my lecture events now. In any case, the link is always the same:

https://cs-uni-saarland-de.zoom.us/j/98245956529?pwd=aU1oZ1ZUTGlxaEorUTNOR2FEU3Jhdz09

This is true for the entire course, including also those lectures we will do hybrid in GHH and zoom.

ps. On the side: I had forgotten to upload the CSP pre-handouts prior to the lecture. I have now uploaded all pre-handouts for the lectures up to June 9.

Hi all,

another important thing to know for you in advance:

For logistical reasons (my research group will be doing Programmierung2 in summer 2023), the next edition of the AI course will be in the WINTER TERM 2023/24.

Please keep that in mind with a view on the amount of effort you invest in the current edition of the course; your next chance to pass the course will be in 1.5 years, not in 1 year.

Hi all,

as you can see from the timetable, I'll be giving the lectures in the next weeks, until June 9.

We'll still do the lecture online next week, May 9 and May 12, as I'd like the Covid numbers to go down a bit more.

However, after that, we'll go hybrid. Starting May 16, the lectures will be in GHH (Günter-Hotz Hörsaal); you will also be able to access them in zoom (same link as before); and they will also be streamed to YouTube (link posted in zoom chat, as before). I will try to watch the zoom chat during the lecture to answer questions from students participating online; but I'm not sure how well this will work out. If you want to participate actively, best come to GHH.

Note: The hybrid mode will be for the time being. It's not decided yet how we will continue after my part of the lecture.

Looking forward to see you in real life soon,

Jörg Hoffmann

Dear students,

We have now assigned the tutorials. If you log in to the CMS you can find your tutorial on the "personal status" page.

Forming Groups
You can now start/proceed forming groups. Please do so by using the forum. All members of a group need to be in the same tutorial (please compare the actual tutorial, not only the time slot, since there are tutorials using the same time slot in parallel). You do not need to mail the group members to anybody (the tutors or me). Please write them down on the solutions you hand in (as specified on the exercise sheets). You can start working in your new group right away.

Changing Tutorials
You can change your tutorial if and only if you find somebody who wants to swap the group with you. So if you want e.g. to be in Tutorial 3 and are in Tutorial 2, please go to the forum and find somebody who is in Tutorial 3 and wants to be in Tutorial 2. Then write a single e-mail per swap to me (Daniel Höller). Please use the following template and put the student you want to swap with in CC:

mail subject:
Changing Tutorials

mail content:
Full Name 1    from    Tutorial A    to    Tutorial B
Full Name 2    from    Tutorial B    to    Tutorial A

Dear students,

just to make this information very visible:

The lectures will be online in zoom first (for personal health reasons of the lecturers), and may move to presence lectures in Günter-Hotz-Hörsaal later. For up to date details, refer to the "Course Calendar". The link for the zoom lectures is https://cs-uni-saarland-de.zoom.us/j/98245956529?pwd=aU1oZ1ZUTGlxaEorUTNOR2FEU3Jhdz09

The online lectures will be streamed to YouTube (link provided in zoom chat at start of lecture), and links to the YouTube archive videos will be posted in CMS.

For presence teaching, we will look into hybrid teaching options. But we do not give a guarantee that all lectures will be available online.

In particular, the first lecture on Monday April 11, 10:15 -- 11:45, will be in zoom. I will explain organizational matters, and give a brief introduction to AI.

Artificial Intelligence

This course offers a general introduction into the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), its history, key assumptions, paradigms, concepts, and fundamental methods. Students learn to master and apply techniques developed in the fields of intelligent agents, search algorithms and game playing, knowledge representation, logical reasoning and deduction, planning, constraint reasoning, machine learning, and reasoning under uncertainty. We explain how and when these methods work and for which problem classes they are suitable to successfully build AI systems. With the knowledge acquired in this course, students are well-prepared to successfully attend the many special lectures on AI offered at UdS or to write their Bachelor or Master thesis in the field of AI.
