State of AI
Lecture

It was my honor and pleasure to teach this course at the European Forum Alpbach. The seminar introduced the basic principles of Artificial Intelligence to give participants a basis for evaluating ongoing public discussions. To give participants from non-technical subject areas an idea of the difficulty of programming, we had a robot programming challenge, with students playing the parts of robots, compilers and programmers.
