Final Exam: Outline
The final exam will be given
Wednesday May 9 from 5:00 to 7:00 in room 102. It is
closed book and closed notes.
You should know the following algorithms well enough to carry them out:
depth-first search; breadth-first search; iterative deepening; hill-climbing;
game tree evaluation with alpha-beta pruning; Davis-Putnam algorithm;
conversion to clausal form for propositional calculus and predicate calculus;
resolution theorem proving for
predicate calculus; nearest neighbors learning;
Naive Bayes learning; 1R learning; ID3 learning (though
I will not give you any problem that involves computing entropies); k-means
