IIT madras free course ai knowledge representation

Are you interested in learning about exploring a variety of representation formalisms and the associated algorithms for reasoning in Artificial intelligence?

IIT Madras is going to offer a free online course on AI: knowledge representation and reasoning. This course will help you understand the basics of knowledge representation and reasoning. You’ll learn how to solve problems using logic, how to build intelligent systems that can interpret natural language, reason using formal methods and more. The course is taught by Professor Deepak Khemani, who has over 20 years of experience teaching at IIT Madras. Prof. Khemani is a Professor at Department of Computer Science and Engineering. He’s also written several books and papers on the subject. This course will cover topics like knowledge representation and reasoning, search techniques, game playing and heuristic search methods. It’ll be perfect for anyone looking to learn more about this fascinating topic! Prerequisites include some exposure to formal languages, logic and programming. 

You can enroll today without paying anything – it’s completely free! If you want a certificate though, you have to register for the proctored exam that will be conducted in person at one of our designated exam centers across India. This would cost Rs. 1000/-. So what are you waiting for? Enroll now before spots run out!
