The project goal is to
develop a framework for teaching core AI topics using a unifying theme of machine learning. A suite of adaptable, hands-on laboratory projects will be developed that can be closely integrated into a one-semester AI course. The project will enhance the student learning experience in the introductory Artificial Intelligence course by:
- Introducing machine learning elements into the AI course,
- Implementing a set of unifying machine learning laboratory projects to tie together the core AI topics, and
- Developing, applying, and testing an adaptable framework for the presentation of core AI topics which emphasizes the important relationship between AI and computer science in general, and software development in particular.
