Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
- design principles and specification mechanisms for rational agents;
- problem solving using heuristic search: heuristic search techniques, optimizing search;
- problem solving using knowledge-based techniques: logic and inference techniques; reasoning about space and time; representation of ontologies; representation and reasoniong in the common sense world;
- problem solving using uncertain knowledge and information: basic concepts of probability and decision theory; Bayesian Networks; planning with Markov decision problems;
- action planning: automatic generation of partially ordered action plans; planning and execution;
- machine learning: learning decision trees; inductive learning; probably approximately correct learning; reinforcement learning.
Examples are search algorithms, methods of logical inference, as well as computation of state probabilities of Bayesian networks and hidden Markov models.

Learning and Teaching Methods
Description of exams and course work
A collection of formulas and tables required to solve the given problems is provided. Students are only allowed to bring pens and a calculator (non-progammable). The questions require to solve problems mathematically and to answer questions in natural language.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
