Graphics devices. Two dimensional and three dimensional image representations and transformations. Graphics systems software architecture; graphics standards; packages.

Constructing computer programs that automatically improve with experience is the main task of machine learning. The key algorithms in the area are presented. Learning concepts as decision trees, artificial neural networks and Bayesian approach are discussed. The standard iterative dichotomizer (ID3) is presented, the issues of overfitting, attribute selection and handling missing data are discussed. Neural nets are discussed in detail, examples of supervised and unsupervised learning are presented. Instance-based learning, i.e. k-nearest neighbor learning, case-based reasoning are introduced. Genetic algorithms are discussed on introductory level.
