In this course, we will explore different types of problems, the boundaries of what makes a problem solvable, and the different algorithms, rules, and heuristics we can implement to solve these problems.
Problems for Minds and Machines
-This week we will begin our discussions by defining the boundaries and limitations of problems and their solutions.
Computers and Logic
-This week we will explore adapting problem-solving approaches into computational methods.
Humans and Heuristics
-This week we will discuss judgment and decision making as a different kind of problem-solving and explore how heuristics are used for these tasks.
Course Assessment & Wrap-Up Discussion
-In this module, you will test your knowledge on methods for solving problems.
