To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This course provides an introduction to the various topics in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Topics to be covered include search, games, regression, classification and neural networks. Students will develop an understanding of the fundamentals underpinning AI applications and gain hands-on experience through the development of AI systems. Practical work in course projects focuses on developing components of AI systems as well as analyzing real-world datasets from different domains. The societal implications and ethical considerations in the design of AI systems will also be discussed.
Acceptance into the Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems Degree program OR special permission (COMP2121, MATH3042, COMP3522 or equivalent).
