Artificial Intelligence

NOTE: Where the 2013 requirements for a programme differ from those previously published, care will be taken to ensure existing students are not disadvantaged.

Researchers in artificial intelligence are working to develop computer systems that match or exceed the capabilities of the human brain in, for example: learning, the representation of knowledge, reasoning, speech recognition and the use of language, and vision. This has led to many practical developments in the computer industry, including data mining and natural language interfaces to commercial software.

This specialisation will enable you to understand and use and even build your own Artificial Intelligence techniques.

† BSc regulation 8 requires 105 points across at least four science subjects. STAT121 and STAT111 will help satisfy these requirements and is strongly recommended in its own right. It also helps students keep their options open for changing to another major with the Faculty if desired.

* These elective 100 level papers should be recognised Science papers, which are all papers offered by the Faculty of Science & Engineering, all COMP, STAT and MATH papers (except MATH168), and PHIL102, PSYC102 and PSYC103.

Elective papers may be replaced by papers at a higher level.
