CSU520/CSG120 Artificial Intelligence - Spring 2007 - Some AI links

Professor Futrelle - College of Computer and Information Sciences, Northeastern U., Boston, MA

Version of January 2, 2009

This material was collected in the Fall of 2006 as a student project. By early 2009, some of the links are certainly broken. But it's useful nevertheless. The emphasis was on university sites, AI courses as well as research. But it will need some thinning, editing, and commenting - to be done as time permits. Feedback on the utility of the links below is appreciated.

     -- Professor Futrelle.

If a link below is to a college course, it is in the form: "name of class : name of college or university
