Artificial intelligence

Đorđe Obradović, Marko Jocić


  • What is AI?

  • History of AI

  • Problems of AI

  • Applications or uses of AI

What is Artificial intelligence?

  • The branch of computer science

  • Problem solving

  • The ability of a computer or other machine to perform those activities that are normally thought to require intelligence

  • The study and design of Intelligent Agent

What is Artificial intelligence?

1956. John Mc Carty, MIT

The science and engineering of making intelligent machine

  • especially intelligent computer programs. It is related to the similar task of using computers to understand human intelligence.

What is Artificial intelligence?

The branch of computer science concerned with making computers behave like humans.


A system that makes it possible for a machine to perform functions similar to human intelligence.

History of AI

  • 1956. Term Artificial Intelligence introduced

  • Computer were solving word problem in algebra, proving logical theorems and speaking English.

  • In the early 80s AI research was received by the commercial success of Expert System.

  • In the 90s and early 21st century: AI achieved its greatest success.

History of AI (90s and beyond)

  • 1997. Deep Blue – chess-playing computer beats reigning world champion Garry Kasparov

    • Kasparov demanded a rematch because he thought the computer was cheating 

  • Deep Blue could evaluate 200 million positions per second

    • Today’s Intel Core 2 Duo CPU is capable of evaluating 8 million positions

History of AI (90s and beyond)

  • 2005. Stanford robot – driving autonomously for 131 miles along an unrehearsed desert trail

    • 2010. Google driverless car – driving in cities, and also racing on test courses. No accidents so far!

    • 2011 – present - self-driven cars legalized in some states of USA

History of AI (90s and beyond)

  • 2011. Watson – IBM’s question answering machine defeated two greatest champions of Jeopardy! quiz

  • capable of answering questions posed in natural language

  • 200 millions pages of data (4 TB of disk storage)

  • received prize of $1 million for victory 

Problems of AI

The problem of simulating (or creating) intelligence has been broken down into a number of specific sub-problems.

Problems of AI

  • Deduction, reasoning, problem solving

    • Early AI researches developed Algorithms that imitated the step-by-step reasoning that human beings use when they solve puzzles, play board games or make logical deductions.

Problems of AI

  • Knowledge Representation

    • Many of the problems machines are expected to solve will require extensive knowledge about the world.

Problems of AI

  • Planning

    • Intelligent agents must be able to set goals and achieve them. They need a way to visualize the future and be able to make choices that maximaze the utility (or “value”) of the available choices.

Problems of AI

  • Learning – Machine learning

    • The mathematical analysis of the machine learning algorithms and their performance is branch of theoretical computer science known ascomputational learning theory

Problems of AI

  • Natural language processing

    • Natural language processing gives machines the ability to read and understand the languages that human beings speak.

Problems of AI

  • Motion and manipulation

    • The field of robotics is closely related to AI. Intelligence is required for robots to be able to handle such tasks as object manipulation and navigation, with sub problems of localization (knowing where you are), mapping (learning what is around you) and motion planning (figuring out how to get there)

Problems of AI

  • Perception

    • Machine perception is the ability to use input from sensors (such as cameras, microphones, sonar and others more exotic) to deduce aspects of the world.

  • How it works?

    • How human beings performs intelligence tasks?

    • Is it possible to use those abilities in computer programs?

    • How?


  • Try to solve this equations FAST without using calculator:


  • If the car traveling at the speed of 61.34 km/h, for how many minutes will exceed 29.56 km?


  • Do we use some shortcuts?

  • For example..


  • Or


  • Do we use some shortcuts?

  • For example..

If the car traveling at the speed of 61.34 km/h, for how many minutes will exceed 29.56 km?

61.34 km/h is approximately 60 km/h, which is about 1 km/min.

So it means that we will need about half an hour to arrive at the destination of 29.56 km.


  • If we can use such shortcuts, how we can use them in computer programs?

  • In the real applications length of 16cm is almost same as 16.01cm

  • If we insist on accuracy sometimes our program cam make wrong conclusion.

Applications of AI

Natural language processing

  • Gives machines the ability to read and understand the languages human beings speak

  • Requires in-depth knowledge of the languages that are processed

  • The goal is often natural language understanding – enabling computers to derive meaning from human language input

Speech recognition

  • Technology that allows the computer to identify and understand words spoken by a person using a microphone or telephone

  • Many challenges:

    • different accent

    • slang

    • background noise

Facial recognition

  • Automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source

  • Uses:

    • security systems

    • crime prevention

    • auto-focus (on modern

      mobile devices and camers)


  • Faster collection and examination of large amounts of information

  • Improving reaction and decision-making for more effective military actions

  • High-performance fighter aircraft

  • Training simulators


  • Clinical decision support systems

  • Computer-aided medical diagnosis

  • Computer-aided interpretation of medical images (CT, MRI, ultrasound…)

And many others…

  • Finance – market predicting

  • Transportation – automatic gearboxes who utilize fuzzy logic

  • Music – can computer be a skillful musician?

  • Toys – artificial pets

  • Real estate – risk analysis

  • E-mail spam filtering

  • Games

Games & AI


Chess Dragon





  • Demos of AI in games:

    • Are you faster then a computer?

    • Can you beat a simple chess AI?

  • Demos of AI in computer vision:

    • Real-time object tracking

    • Medicine – image segmentation

    • Optical character recognition (OCR)


  • Demo of AI in natural language processing:

    • Have a chat with a bot
