Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The following fields are treated within the scope of the course:  problem-solving with search algorithms, heuristics, knowledge representations (logic), planning, representation of uncertainty and inference (Bayesian networks, HMM), decision theory and utility theory, diction (NLP). 

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student shall be able to 

  1. apply different principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI) 
  2. choose appropriate tools and implement efficient solutions to problems in AI 
  3. integrate tools to design computer programs that show different properties that are expected by an intelligent system 
  4. present, analyse, and entitle an own solution to an AI problem 
  5. reflect on and discuss current social and ethical aspects of AI 

in order to be able to 

  • draw use of methods of artificial intelligence in analysis, design and implementation of computer programs 
  • contribute to design of an intelligent system in both academic and industrial applications.

Active participation in a course offering where the final examination is not yet reported in LADOK is considered equivalent to completion of the course.

Being registered for a course counts as active participation.

The term 'final examination' encompasses both the regular examination and the first re-examination.

Recommended prerequisites

Students who are planning to take the course autumn semester 2020 are given exemption from the specific prerequisite regarding regarding mathematics corresponding to SF1546 Numerical methods basic course.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB2 - Laboratory work, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
  • RAP1 - Report, 0.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
  • TEN2 - Written exam, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
