Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)
Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is a new, exciting field of computer science dedicated to realizing human behaviors on a computer. In this program, Fairmont students are introduced to basic search algorithms for problem-solving, knowledge representation and reasoning, pattern recognition, fuzzy logic, and neural networks. Students actively engage in course content, participate in online activities, and complete hands-on assignments to showcase their learning. Most importantly, students identify problems in today’s world and how artificial intelligence might be used to solve them.
