Expert system architectures: forward-production, logic programming, deductive retrieval, and semantic network systems. The course also treats natural language systems, illustrative working systems, and AI programming.

Teaching

Online and Continuing Education Courses

Introduction to data structures and fundamental algorithms. This course covers the design and implementation of dynamic data structures including linked list, queue, stack, heap, trees and graphs. This course also provides comprehensive coverage of fundamental groups of algorithms, including divide-and-conquer, dynamic programming, and greedy algorithms.
