The course includes two lab assignments. Lab assignments should be solved in groups of four or five students.
Lab Assignment 1: Generate A* based search routines that you can use to compete on the 'Delivery Man' game. More information will be coming soon!
Lab Assignment 2: Implement a Hidden Markov Model based routine that you can use to compete on the 'Where's Croc' game.
Assignments handed in before their respective deadlines (see table below) will be marked and returned as soon as possible. All assignments must be passed in order to pass the lab component of the course.
Note that one of the requirements for a top grade in the course as a whole is that the assignments (serious attempts) have been handed in before their respective deadlines. Assignments handed in after the last scheduled day will be accepted, but may not be marked until the end of the semester. Students who fail to hand in the reports before the end of the semester, fail the course.
Presentation and Exercises

The course also includes two class exercise sessions. Activities will be presented on the day to be done in groups. Completion is compulsory.
Examination in this course is a sum of three parts; The lab assignments, the presentation and a written exam, in total worth 5 credits.
The presentation and exercises are graded U (fail) or G (pass). The lab assignments are graded U, 3, 4 or 5. Together (indivisibly) the lab projects and presentation are worth 2 credits.
The written exam is graded U, 3, 4 or 5 and is worth 3 credits.
The total grade on a complete course is the average grade of the lab projects (weighted at 25% each) and the exam (weighted at 50%), rounded to the closest integer. In addition you must pass all the labs and, for grade 5 specifically, all deadlines during the course must have been met.

"What is intelligence"? is a deep philosophical question. The topic of this course is more practical: how can we make computers perform tasks that - up to now - are difficult for computers? Tasks that require an "intelligent" approach, because computing power alone is not enough.
