Semester 2, 2012/2013
This course offers insights into the understanding of two artificial intelligence (AI) techniques namely, fuzzy logic and artificial neural networks (ANN). Both techniques have been successfully applied by many industries in consumer products and industrial systems. Fuzzy logic offers flexibility in developing rule-based systems using natural language type of rules. On the other hand, ANN have strong generalization and discriminant properties and offer a simple way of developing system models and function approximation. They are highly feasible in many pattern recognition applications. This course offers a basic understanding of the two AI techniques and their real world applications. This course might include hands-on experiments of fuzzy logic and ANN using a software developed by the Center for Artificial Intelligence & Robotics (CAIRO) and Augmented Innovation Sdn. Bhd., and other commercial software.
This course is intended to provide a basic understanding on the concepts of AI, which includes fuzzy logic and neural networks techniques, and some of their applications. The course has been organized to have the following objectives:
  1. To understand the broad concept of artificial intelligence and its applications in industry.
