Fear Of The Sponge

Today I made an interesting discovery: life is boring somehow. Well, actually it is no discovery. Most people learned this already through their parents or maybe even in school (were they educated to be bored?). Never mind. Some of you might know that I have an oral examination on Tuesday, 20th at the university.

The lecture itself is all about an introduction on Artificial Intelligence (AI) (no, not the bad movie from Steven Spielberg) and, what a surprise, I haven’t started learning for it, yet.

It is quite interesting stuff, but I already heard some of that (that’s because I already attended the lecture a few semesters ago, but never finished the course). Speaking of first order logic, I must say currently I am still at war with it. To get some basic explanations, going far beyond the slides (which only provide very rudimentary knowledge), I bought Artifical Intelligence – a modern approach (German edition) by Russell & Norvig.
