Techniques in Artificial Intelligence (SMA 5504)

A graphic showing a Mars Rover-like robot in a sandy, rocky environment. A circular path of words is overlaid, with the words Precepts - Agent - Actions - Environment (and back to Precepts again).

An example of the agent and environment dichotomy. This figure illustrates a robot taking actions that affect the state of the environment then receiving percepts with new information on the environment. (Image courtesy of Beryl Simon.)
