ICT371 Artificial Intelligence
Students will require access to the internet and email. Where students use their own computers, they should have internet access. KOI will provide access to required software. Resource requirements specific to this subject: Rapid miner, Office 365, MS Imagine.
The goal of Artificial Intelligence is to build software systems that behave "intelligently". That is, do these computer systems "do the right thing" in complex environments? Do they act optimally given the limited information and computational resources available? How is this aim interpreted? This subject covers the core topics of Artificial Intelligence such as knowledge representation, reasoning, and learning. Students will learn to design and analyse autonomous agents that do the right thing in the face of limited computational resources and limited information. This subject examines agents that can effectively make decisions in fully observable, partially observable and adversarial environments, and agents that can adapt their actions by learning from experience.
Graduates of Bachelor courses from King's Own Institute (KOI) will achieve the graduate attributes expected under the Australian Qualifications Framework (2’d edition, January 2013). Graduates at this level will be able to apply a broad and coherent body of knowledge from their major area of study in a range of contexts for professional practice or scholarship and as a pathway for further learning.
King's Own Institute's generic graduate attributes for a bachelor's level degree are summarised below:
KOI Bachelor Degree Graduate Attributes
Knowledge Critical Thinking
Problem Solving Skills
Ethical and Cultural Sensitivity
Teamwork Professional Skills
Current, comprehensive, and coherent and connected knowledge
Critical thinking and creative skills to analyse and synthesise information and evaluate new problems
Communication skills for effective reading, writing, listening and presenting in varied modes and contexts and for transferring knowledge and skills to a variety of audiences
Information and technological skills for accessing, evaluating, managing and using information professionally
Skills to apply logical and creative thinking to solve problems and evaluate solutions
Appreciation of ethical principles, cultural sensitivity and social responsibility, both personally and professionally
Leadership and teamwork skills to collaborate, inspire colleagues and manage responsibly with positive results
Professional skills to exercise judgement in planning, problem solving and decision making
Across the course, these skills are developed progressively at three levels:
Level 1 Foundation Students learn the basic skills, theories and techniques of the subject and apply them in basic, standalone contexts
Level 2 Intermediate Students further develop the skills, theories and techniques of the subject and apply them in more complex contexts, and begin to integrate this application with other subjects.
