Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most popular areas in computer science and engineering. AI deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines, robots, and body-less computer programs. AI is everywhere: search engines use it to improve answers to queries, to recognize speech, to translate languages, email programs use it to filter spam, banks use it to predict exchange rates and stock markets, doctors use it to recognize tumors, robots use it to localize themselves and obstacles, autonomous cars use it to drive, video games use it to enhance the player's experience, adaptive telescopes use it to improve image quality, smartphones use it to recognize objects/faces/gestures/voices/ music, etc. People are discussing the possibility of superintelligence and AI risks. Big players such as Google, Amazon, Baidu, Microsoft, etc are investing billions in AI, and the AI-related job market is growing extremely rapidly.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the most popular areas in computer science and engineering. AI deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines, robots, and body-less computer programs. The first AI master in Switzerland is offered in Lugano, profiting from the competences of the Faculty of Informatics and the Swiss AI Lab, IDSIA, Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence, a common institute with SUPSI and one of the world's leading research institutes in this field.
Structure and contents
Artificial Intelligence may not only be the most exciting field in computer science but of science in general. In fact, the best scientists in the future might even be AIs themselves. Hardware soon will have more raw computational power (CP) than human brains, since CP percent is still growing by a factor of 100-1000 per decade. And there is no reason to believe that general problem-solving software similar to that of humans will be lacking: there already exist mathematically optimal (though not yet practical) universal problem solvers developed at IDSIA. And existing highly practical (but not quite as universal) AI already learns from experience, outperforming humans in more and more fields.
Artificial Intelligence systems have knowledge, beliefs, preferences, and goals, and they have informational as well as motivational attitudes. They observe, learn, communicate, plan, anticipate and commit. They are able to reason about other systems and their own internal states, to simulate and optimize their performance.
