COMP4620 — Advanced Topics in Artificial Intelligence

code: COMP4620
name: Advanced Topics in Artificial Intelligence
unit value: 6
description: In this course, the students will learn about decision making under uncertainty. This means how to model this type of problems and how to solve them, as well as the practical ethical issues that you need to take into account for automated, data-based decision makers.

The course takes an interdisciplinary approach by combining perspectives from philosophy, ethics, and computer science.
