Course Description

Prof. Thielscher, Stephan Schiffel

Each participant chooses a specific topic on Game Playing and AI.

At the end of the lecturing period, the participants present their topic in a talk (20 to 25 minutes + 5 to 10 minutes discussion). They are also required to write a paper on the selected topic (~10 pages in length), which conforms to the standards of scientific writing. Talks can be held in english or german.
