The science part of this course is taught as a series of more-or-less independent modules. Some modules will take a second look at ideas introduced in previous courses (like Mechanics or Waves), but in a more sophisticated way. Other modules will introduce completely new ideas that can really only be approached through computation.
Artificial intelligence has received an overwhelming amount of hype, but what is it all about? In this module, we pick up where we left off in machine learning and look at another powerful AI technique: neural networks.
It would be fair to argue that the entire field of engineering is just optimization by another name. In this module, we provide an introductory look at classic 1- and 2- dimensional optimization along with modern machine learning via genetic algorithms
