Unit 1: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and AI Programming
While AI applications can be developed in any number of different languages, certain language features make programming AI applications straightforward. Prolog is structured in such a way that AI program development is supported by Prolog language features. Other languages, such as Java, support AI programming through code libraries. At this point in your career as a computer science major, you have already taken introductory programming courses; these should assist you in learning Prolog and using code libraries in other languages for AI program development.
This unit will provide you with an introduction to AI via programming features that support basic AI applications. By satisfying the goals of this unit, you will have a familiarity with AI programming and be able to use it in future models to implement various AI applications.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 10 hours.
