BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
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).
This course will be offered online in the Fall 2021 term. 1. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for departmental approval. Include your student number (A0#), course number (COMP__) and preferred CRN. 2. This is a CST BTech course. CST BTech courses are also open to non-bachelor program students. 3. CST Bachelor program students have up to seven (7) years to complete the Bachelor program starting from the date of their first Technical degree-level course or the date of acceptance to the Bachelor program, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST. 4. This course is part of the Athena Pathways project – learn more at athenapathways.org
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Describe current applications of AI.
Solve problems using uninformed, informed and adversarial search techniques.
