Course goals
The goal of this course is to get acquainted with some of the most frequently used models of computation in AI. Models include (but are not restricted to): Turing Machines, Register Machines, µ-recursive functions, Herbrand-Gödel functions, Markov-systems, Quantum Computino, Cellular Automata, l-calculus, Neural Networks, Fractran etc. The models are studied by relating them.

General remarks
Every week there's a lecture (2 hours) as well as a presentation by students relating 2 models of computation.

Contribution to group work
Students should select (under guidance) 2 models of computation, compare them, present the result of this comparison and write this up in a short paper.
