Course detail

Intelligent Systems

FIT-ISDAcad. year: 2020/2021

Tolerance of imprecision and uncertainty as main attribute of ISY. Intelligent systems based on combinations of several theories - neural networks, fuzzy sets, rough sets and genetic algorithms: expert systems, intelligent information systems, machine translation systems, intelligent sensor systems, intelligent control systems, intelligent robotic systems.

Topics for the SDE (state doctoral exam)

  1. Fuzzy expert systems
  2. Knowledge engineering using soft-computing
  3. Intelligent sensor systems
  4. Neural networks in intelligent systems
  5. Fuzzy control systems
  6. Neuro-fuzzy control systems
  7. Rough sets in intelligent systems
  8. Genetic algorithms in intelligent systems
  9. Inteligent robots
  10. Navigation of mobile robots

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students acquire knowledge of principles of intelligent systems and so they will be able to design these systems for solving of various practical problems.
A detailed overview of the current state of intelligent systems and the ability to use the acquired knowledge in their own research.


Basic knowledge of artificial intelligence in a scope of Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence course of current study program at FIT.
