A survey of the study of human intelligence using the computer and robots. The first half of the course focuses on traditional artificial intelligence, which assumed that human intelligence involves computations over internal or mental representations of the world. Topics include search, planning, problem solving, and natural language processing. The second half of the course looks at behavior-based robotics, which assumes that behavior, including intelligence behavior, is the product of the interaction between a bundle of sense-behavior pairs that do not require memory or a world model.
