Can Computers Think? - an Introduction to Computer Science, Programming, and Artificial Intelligence

Kristina Striegnitz, Valerie Barr

We believe that interdisciplinary connections have to be integrated into introductory computer science courses in order to spark interest in computer science among a diverse group of undergraduate students. We also believe that AI can serve this function and have developed an introductory computer science course with a focus on AI, which we are currently (January 2008) teaching for the first time. This paper describes the course and we will report on our experiences with it at the symposium in March.
