What: One of the primary goals of AI is the design, control
and analysis of agents or systems that behave appropriately in a
variety of circumstances. Good decision making often requires the
existence of knowledge or beliefs about the agent's environment, as
well as about its own abilities to observe and change the environment,
and about its own goals and preferences. In this course we will
examine computational approaches for modeling uncertainty and for
solving decision problems. We will focus mainly on probabilistic
models of reasoning, and on sequential decision making.
The course is intended for advanced undergraduate students and for
graduate students, and will provide an introduction to the on-going
research in the field of reasoning under uncertainty, which has been
very active during the last decade. For details, see the syllabus and
