Artificial Intelligence 101
for Community College or
Vocational Technical School

A curriculum is presented for the start of a year-long course in artificial intelligence (AI) leading to a Certificate for AI Mind Maintainer.

Although knowledge of both English and a computer programming language may be considered as prerequisites for AI 101, a student could be learning English and programming concurrently with the taking of this course. A gifted student, especially a person already having a B.S. or a Ph.D. in computer science, could conceivably take AI 101, AI 102 and AI 103 all at the same time, so a community college or a vocational technical school with sufficient human resources might well consider teaching AI 101 at, say, 8:30 a.m. and AI 102 at 9:30 a.m. and AI 103 at 10:30 a.m. so as to provide maximum leeway in the arrangement of student schedules.

The beginning of the year-long course for AI Mind Maintainers is concerned mainly with the necessary Theory of Mind for concept-based artificial intelligence and with the relatively straightforward and simple programming of providing sensory input of natural language into an emerging AI Mind or to a pre-existing AI in need of tending by an AI Mind Maintainer. The middle part of the year-long course is concerned with thinking, and the final portion of the course deals with more advanced topics.

For continuation see AI 102 and AI 103.
