Build a Strategy Game
Artificial intelligence is entering all our lives in surprising and unexpected places. From your online shopping experience, to your voice controlled mobile phone, to automated telephone assistance, the algorithms behind our technology are having a huge impact on our lives. Algorithms are out-performing humans in a number of areas, with world-champions in games like chess and Go being beaten by computers.
In this course we will provide an introduction to some artificial intelligence techniques through the creation of a game-playing computer program. We will use the Connect 4 game, where players drop counters into a grid and attempt to connect four counters in a row.
This course is a ideal for those looking to explore programming and AI for fun or as a career.
