This Course

A Course For 4th+Year Computer Scientists

  • You are expected to be able to write decent code coming in

  • You are expected to be comfortable with algorithms, discrete math, logic and calculus

  • If you are fairly uncomfortable with these, go fix that first

What We Won't Be Doing

  • Philosophy of AI. We will really concentrate on practice over theory

  • AI woo. We will concentrate on proven theories you can use to consistently produce practical results
