    • Consultation Time/Place: 10:00-12:00 AM (Mon., Wed., Fri.) / 302-314-1
  • Classroom: Bldg. 14, Room# 207-1
  • Time: Thursday 13:00-16:00

  • Purpose of Course
    • Alan Turing proposed the concept of artificial intelligence with Turing machine in 1950. Today, computational intelligence is applied in various areas through a machine learning algorithm. We study various machine learning algorithms in the class. Student will have a chance of writing a research report with his/her own data based on the discussion of the class. Not only the students of science and engineering background but also the students of humanity, social science or art are welcomed.
