The module covers computational algorithms for intelligent information management, decision making and complex problem solving. It provides an introduction to technologies such as knowledge-based systems, artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, hybrid systems showing how such technologies work to support the development of modern intelligent applications.
No formal pre-requisite or co-requisite module but knowledge of mathematical concepts such as those presented in the website (http://www.gcseguide.co.uk/mathsgcseguide.htm) is essential.
All dates and timetables are listed in the programme handbooks of individual programmes.
