Learning objectives

To give the students the knowledge of intelligent systems design (control, production, etc.) based on combinations of theories of neural networks, fuzzy sets, rough sets and genetic algorithms.
Students acquire knowledge of principles of intelligent systems and so they will be able to design these systems for solving of various practical problems.
A detailed overview of the current state of intelligent systems and the ability to use the acquired knowledge in their own research.

Why is the course taught

Intelligent systems are becoming an integral and important part of everyday life.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Basic knowledge of artificial intelligence in a scope of Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence course of current study program at FIT.
