In the future autonomous artificial systems will be present more and more in our daily life. Such systems need to be able to interact with humans and to react to unexpected situations 'intelligently'. This course comprises an introduction as well as practical deepening of various agent models, psychological foundations, and diverse reasoning technics. Within small groups racing agents will be developed (racing simulation TORCS: At the end of the course the developed agents are evaluated in a contest.

Homework: Schreibe einen einfachen Torcs-Agenten, der eine beliebige Strecke alleine als einziges Fahrzeug mindestens einmal abfahren kann. Installiere dir dazu selbst Torcs auf einem Rechner, schreibe einen entsprechenden Agenten und schicke den Sourcecode des Agenten an uns. Dokumentiere und nenne alle genutzten Hilfsmittel (inklusive HowTo's, Tutorials, Websites und Kooperationen!).
