Course detail

Technical Applications of Artificial Intelligence Methods

FSI-RUIAcad. year: 2019/2020

The course is intended for students of mathematical engineering and deals with the multi-valued logic theory, theory of linguistic varialble, linguistic models and theory of expert systems based on these topics. Also dealt with are the technical applications of multi-valued logic and expert systems in technical branches.
