New course on logic, probability, and artificial intelligence

 Professor Hanti Lin is inaugurating a new course, Philosophy 133 titled "Logic, Probability, and Artificial Intelligence," which offers an introduction to theoretical artificial intelligence, with a focus on nonmonotonic logic, Bayes networks, and machine learning. An intelligent agent acquires knowledge and makes use of it in planning or decision making. This new course focuses more on knowledge acquisition rather than on planning or decision making processes. The goal of this course is to make the core issues in theoretical artificial intelligence accessible to a wider audience meeting minimal prerequisites in logic (PHI 12 and 112) without any background knowledge in computer science or statistics.
