CS4804 Midterm Topic List

This is a list of concepts that I’ll expect you to have a good understanding of midway through the course. You don’t need to know the exact details of every concept, but having a rough idea of what each means and connections to other concepts will help you use AI ideas in your future work. For the exam, since you’re free to use the book, your class notes, and my class materials, as well as any properly cited external materials from the Internet or other books, you certainly don’t need to memorize specific details.
