This mega-recitation covers Problem 2 from Quiz 1, Fall 2008. We start with depth-first search and breadth-first search, using a goal tree in each case. We then discuss branch and bound and A*, and why they give different answers in this problem.
This course introduces students to the basic knowledge representation, problem solving, and learning methods of artificial intelligence. Upon completion of 6.034, students should be able to develop intelligent systems by assembling solutions to concrete computational problems; understand the role of knowledge representation, problem solving, and learning in intelligent-system engineering; and appreciate the role of problem solving, vision, and language in understanding human intelligence from a computational perspective.
