Due to the still ongoing pandemic, this course will be held virtually.

Instead of traditional two-hour lectures, the course offers the students a
number of introductions to various topics in the field of AI. These
introductions are short video presentations with slides, around 30 minutes per
topic. Introductions are published each week.
Q&A session timetable:
The participation in the online Q&A sessions is voluntary. In every session,
two of the TAs are present in a Zoom call. The students may enter the call and
ask questions about the course activities, and the TAs will do their best to
assist the student.
The sessions are held each week from 2022-30-05 to 2022-07-17:
Tuesday, at 15-17.

The course is based on the book:
Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach, by Stuart J.
Russell and Peter Norvig.
Although the fourth edition has been published, the third edition is used due
to its wider availability. The electronic book is available for students in
the TUNI library. We have chosen to cover a set of five central AI topics in
this course. Pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms are mostly
covered in other courses.
The following textbook chapters will be included:
