    We're doing Artificial Intelligence I love it! What about yourself?

    My teacher has a feeling that it'll be count occurences, but I'm memorising all 4 incase!

    A.I is great :3 Networking sounds awfully boring and so does Multimedia so I think it's the best. Also the trace is an easy 6-9 marks.

    How'd everyone do on there Coursework in January?

    We done multimedia, it was pretty good. Only lasted two weeks though. Can anyone help me with the calculations in the two standard topics as that is my weak point .

    I got 54/60 for my coursework so I'm feeling really confident about getting 70%+

    Traces are how a program in prolog(for example) comes to a solution.

    (If thats wrong forgive me, I havent studied for computing at all yet :P)

    Part of the AI unit it's basically writing out the steps of how the computer system finds the answer to a query, quite long but if you understand them it's an easy 6-9 marks
