1. Definition: What is Artificial Intelligence? (1a, slide 14)

1.1. Depends in criteria

1.1.1. …Success according to human standards Systems that act like humans AI is the art of creating machines that perform functions that require intelligence when performed by humans Methodology: Take an intellectual task at which people are better and make a computer do it Example: Turing test Systems that think like humans Today's AI varies greatly from human thinking Not very relevant.

1.1.2. Success according to an ideal concept of intelligence: rationality. Systems that think rationally Aristotle: What are ‘correct’ argument and thought processes? Based on logic Problems: Systems that act rationally "Doing the right thing" Maximize goal achievement given available information. Can involve thinking Can involve action without thinking -reflexes etc. Problems:

3.2.3. Definition: What is intelligence (1a, slide 13)

3.2.4. Summary: Different people think of AI differently. Two important questions to ask are: Are you concerned with thinking or behaviour? Do you want to model humans or work on an ideal standard? In this course, we adopt the view that intelligence is concerned mainly with rational action. Ideally, an intelligent agent takes the best possible action in a situation. We will study the problem of building agents that are intelligent in this sense.

5.4. Lectures

6. Topics

6.1. Foundations of AI (1a, slide 23)

6.1.1. History Not Covered In Exam!!!

6.2. Agents

6.2.1. Aka - Intelligent Agents Basically just another name for AI

6.2.2. Agents include human, robots, softbots, thermostats, etc.

6.2.3. An agent can perceive its own actions, but not always it effects

6.2.4. Agent Function If agent perceives something, do something Lecture 1b example (slide 5,6) Not related to implementing logic - hence last 2 functions on slide 6

6.2.5. Agent Program The logic used to achieve the agent functions.

6.2.6. Rationality Rationality != omniscience Doesn't know the actual outcome of it's action. Rationality != perfection for on expected performance. perfection is based on actual performance. Information Gathering Learn form percepts Agent autonomy

6.3. Environment

6.3.1. Must Be specified to define a rational agent

6.3.2. PEAS Performance Environment Actuators Sensors
