Unit 3: Logical Agents and Knowledge Representation
Intelligent agents are supposed to make rational decisions, which are not just logically reasoned, but optimal as well, given the available information. Accordingly, in this unit, we will review the study of logic and conceptualize the differences between propositional logic, first-order logic, fuzzy logic, and default logic. This unit will also present an overview of common statistical tools used in AI. In the last part of this unit, we will try to clarify our definition of knowledge representation and will discuss its roles based on research conducted at MIT.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 27 hours.
