We will cover, with slight modifications, the classical course on AI by Stuart Russell, following the AIMA book. See the 00-orga slides for an overview.
  • This is the central website of the lecture. Link to slides, exercise sheets, announcements, etc will all be posted here.
  • See the 00-orga slides for further information.
  • The Git book is the source for any question regarding git. You basically need to know the information in chapter 2 (Git basics) and it is very helpful to understand chapter 1.3 (also Git basics). Everything else is not very important for you now.

    Git for Windows Please try SourceTree or, if you've been working with Tortoise/SVN before, Tortoise/git

  • The official Python tutorial is a very good starting point, if you already know something about programming. (For the exercises we will use Python 2.7. As long as we don't use libraries, that need Python 2.7, feel free to use Python 3)
  • The official Python documentation is a comprehensive reference, whenever you will have questions to some build-in modules. For the exercises you can use all build-in modules.
  • If you feel your general programming skills could need some improvement, Learn Python The Hard Way is a good beginner's introduction to python as first programming language.
