Course content
Ambient intelligence. Artificial and computational intelligence areas. Example of a system with artificial intelligence. Machine learning, neural networks - decision support in economics, social and environmental sphere. Simple models for classification and prediction of economic processes using neural networks. Knowledge representation. Logical programming languages. Simple knowledge system design. Binary expert systems. Design of knowledge base in expert systems.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Laboratory work
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to provide basic knowledge in the area of artificial and computational intelligence and the possibilities for its use in various areas of social life, especially the economics, social and environmental fields.
The students should be able to understand the areas and methods of artificial and computational intelligence, they should be able to use simple methods and design simple models, as well as be able to work with the knowledge acquired and to develop expert systems.

Assessment methods and criteria
Written examination, Home assignment evaluation, Self project defence, Presentation

Completion and successful defence of three projects - design of prediction/classification model from the area of neural networks, design of knowledge-based system and arbitrary project from the area of ambient intelligence. Written exam.
