|CREDITS||4 credits during the 1st year of 10728 ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY FOR STRATEGY (AND SECURITY) (LM/DS) GENOVA|
|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||INF/01|
|TEACHING LOCATION||GENOVA (ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY FOR STRATEGY (AND SECURITY))|
Computational Intelligence constitutes a repertoire of Artificial Intelligence predictive methodologies build on data and on domain knowledge, which are part of the background of the strategic engineer.
Neural networks; fuzzy logic systems; evolutionary computing; swarm intelligence; neuro-fuzzy and fuzzy neural systems; hybrid intelligent systems, machine learning; classification, regression learning, clustering
The course presents a systematic introduction to the foundations and the applications of Computational Intelligence models which are advanced data processing methods of Artificial Intelligence inspired by natural systems and that encompass artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic systems, evolutionary calculus, swarm intelligence and machine learning. The most relevant topics, such as classification and regression, will be addressed both from a theoretical point of view and through practical programming exercises and homework using the Python language.
The Course does not require specific prerequisites and includes all the necessary elements and references. The basic knowledge in mathematics, statistics acquired in previous studies, and programming skills in Python will be useful for improving the learning curve and student performance.
1 Lecture of 4 hours in a row per week for 10 weeks including frontal lectures, Class exercises and home-works.
