Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are now being applied in many branches of engineering to solve problems and to provide intelligent interfaces for systems and equipment. This course provides an introduction to the four major AI techniques of rule-based expert systems, neural networks, genetic algorithms and fuzzy logic as well as pointers to web resources and books for further reading. In addition, the emerging technologies of soft computing and chat bot agents are discussed. The synthetic character embodiments of these agents are attracting increasing attention since there is evidence that the right character choice can increase the website hit rate.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
