Learn and test advanced AI algorithms
Reasoning, learning, searching for new information are key factors in any modern computer system. The goal of this course is to investigate advanced search and meta-heuristics models and algorithms that are useful solve problems of increasing complexity. These are important tools to allow the student to practically and theoretically analyze and solve also real life situations.
The course include the AI Cup competition, where students develop and test meta-heuristics algorithms on combinatorial optimization problem instances.
