Faculties and centres
The term Artificial Intelligence makes you think of humanoid robots like those in science fiction movies that behave and act just like a human being. Although we have not yet reached that stage, it is true that we use daily systems where AI techniques are used: vacuum robots, computer games, financial prediction, systems to aid in medical diagnosis and endless applications. Some of the advances have been very popular, for example in 1997 the Deep Blue computer became famous for defeating world chess champion Gary Kasparov. Years later, in 2011, another supercomputer, Watson, won by playing on the popular TV show Jeopardy and in 2016 the unthinkable happened, AlphaGo defeated Lee Sedol (professional Go player).
This course reviews different Artificial Intelligence techniques: neural networks, vectorial support machines, evolutionary computing, among others, which can be applied to problems as different as video games, business intellligence or financial prediction.
