The AI-1 Systems Project aims to provide hands-on experience for the topics covered in the Artificial Intelligence 1 lecture (symbolic AI). That includes the implementation of algorithms for specific problems and the use of existing tools. Concretely, the project will consist of several problems, which you will work on individually or in small teams. Each problem will require a substantial amount of programming work - after all the project is worth 10 ECTS. This is the first iteration of the AI-1 Systems Project and we only recently started planning it. Therefore, a lot of things are not yet decided and we will update this website as we go along. To get an idea of the problems, you can take a look at the old assignments.

Details, Registration and First Meeting

Registration for winter semester 2022/2023 on StudOn.

The first meeting will be on October 25, 2022 at 12:15 in room 11501.04.023 (04.023 Hörsaal). In that meeting we will discuss the organization of the project. You are welcome to attend the meeting, independently of whether you are registered on StudOn.

The number of students taking the project is limited to 50. Students of the AI master or CS master program are accepted on a regular basis (unless we have reached 50 participants). Students in other programs will be accepted after the admin meeting (if they are still interested and there is space). If we reach the limit of 50, you might still be able join the project a bit later (we will free up spots taken by students who do not actually submit solutions).

It’s different from “Projekt zur Künstlichen Intelligenz”

On UnivIS, you will also find “Projekt zur Künstlichen Intelligenz (P KI)”. The systems project and “P KI” both count as a project for the master’s degree (in Informatik or Artificial Intelligence). Despite the similar names, they are very different: The systems project (as described on this page) is organized more like a course, parallel to the AI 1 lecture, and every student will work on the same set of problems. “P KI”, on the other hand, is an individual research project with the kwarc group. In the AI Master you need two projects, so you could even take both (then taking the systems project first is probably a good idea).
