Artificial Intelligence - Functional programming

3AIT 6 chapters 3 ECTS credits Level Intermediate


To understand all the applications (the programs), we must have all the models. But also, know how to adapt its programming allows to optimize and of guarantee a result. The object-oriented programming, sequential and factual is means to obtain reliable programs, provided that they are well used. The programming by functions (imperative programming: Functional expression) is one of those choices and can be applied to current artificial intelligence (but not only). This functional programming can use the power of the recursively and to understand or reduce a problem into elementary tasks. It allows the study of edge effects and the limits cases, essential works to master and to stop in all circumstances the execution of a program.


In this course we propose a new approach to design and apprehend a problem. It is to write of programs, primarily by studying the conditions of ends or of reduction. We apply of programming concepts like the browse of path or research of data.


The course proposes an introduction to the A.I. of yesterday and today, the functional programming and the programming object / functional and of implementations (Maze, Expert Systems ...). The number of hours is 40 hours of courses and LABS. The evaluations are an oral evaluation (SOE – 10 minutes) and a graded exercise (4 hours).
