Welcome to Autonomous Agents. This is the homepage for the course.
Computers are about the dumbest things around, yet we call them "thinking machines" and would
really like them to act intelligent. We would at least like them to be a lot less annoying
and understand what we want them to do and how to do it. Artificial Intelligence is about
putting the "thought" into computers. Artificial Intelligence is a huge subject, and we will
only be able to scratch the surface of AI during this course.
A critical article on the problems and methods of Artificial Intelligence can be found under
"What is Artificial Intelligence".
