The course takes advantage of some of the topics previously discussed in the Artificial Intelligence course (year 1), such as knowledge representation, logic, informed search strategies, game theory, constraint resolution. The Intelligent System course starts from such bases and aims at presenting the main applications of Artificial Intelligent methods, with practical examples.

The main goals of the course are:

  • Apply the techniques learned in the Artificial Intelligent course (year 1) to complex problems
  • Investigate complex problems and the main formal and algorithmic tools to address them
  • Provide practical examples


  • Learn how to peforme a critical readout of a scientific paper concerning the topics of the course
  • Provive a practical approach to solve real problems
  • Learn how to prepare a presentation, similar to that needed for the Master Thesis
  • Give a chanes to the students to attend seminars from researchers actively involved in advanced AI topics
