This introductory course considers the question of how computers have come to imitate many kinds of human intelligence. The answer seems to involve our detecting patterns in nature, but also in being able to detect patterns in the very way we think. This course will look at some popular computational methods that shape our lives, and try to explain the ideas that make them work.
This course has been approved to satisfy the Liberal Studies Quantitative/Logical Thinking requirement.
