The main purpose of this seminar is to discuss some of the fundamental issues and topics of artificial intelligence. As a "proseminar" it also aims at strengthening the ability to understand scientific material, to present it in a comprehensible fashion -- both orally and in written form, and to discuss scientific questions that arise in the course of a presentation. As an added feature, students will learn to do this in English.

The proseminar will be limited to 12 students (no exceptions!). Larger numbers will limit the intended learning effect.

The proseminar will be taught in cooperation with Wolfgang Lüer (Sprachenzentrum) and requires some level of proficiency in the English language. Participants will have to take the English proficiency test offered by the Sprachenzentrum and to achieve about 60-80%. Students who achieve less than 60% are recommended to take one of the basic English courses before trying again.
