General Information Edit

Practicum course associated with CS 4700.

Probably the only practicum course that you can sometimes forget that you're taking.

Prerequisites Edit

CS 4700 (or corequisite)

Topics Covered Edit

  • Anything you want, related to AI

Workload Edit

One project, on whatever you want. You can do as much or as little work as you want. You'll probably still get an A+, though.

General Advice Edit

If you're pursuing the AI vector, it's required.

Note that the scheduled section only actually meets on the first week.

Pay close attention to who's teaching it. When taught by Hod Lipson, this was a more structured practicum course, with proposals, code reviews, and weekly reports.

With Bart Selman, this qualified as a "course" in the loosest sense of the word.

Testimonials Edit

Having taken it with Selman, here is all the work I did for this course, and the approximate time I spent on it.

  • Wrote proposal: 1 hour (also, I never received my proposal back)
  • Wrote project: 8 hours
  • Created report and presentation: 6 hours
  • Gave presentation: 0.5 hours

And yes, I did receive an A+.

(Also, if you think I had it easy, my partner did 0 hours of work and also received an A+.)

This is not an intense practicum course.

I took CS4701 when Professor Selman was teaching it. It's probably the easiest course you'll take at Cornell. Since the project itself is very open-ended, you can choose to do as little, or as much, work as you want to do. I took the easy way out and essentially did zero work for this class. I just submitted my high school project, which was an implementation of backgammon and a fairly simple AI. I still received an A+ regardless.
