Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • Have knowledge about the fundamental programming paradigms used in artificial intelligence and robotics such as distributed computing, object oriented, functional and logic paradigms
  • Have knowledge on the application of distributed, functional, object oriented and logical paradigms in robotics and AI
  • Have knowledge on the process of building compilers and interpreters
  • Have knowledge on automata theory, parsing, lexical and semantic analysis and code generation


  • Be able to develop distributed computing systems using libraries
  • Be able to design algorithms and heuristics used in robotics and AI using the object oriented, functional or logic paradigm
  • Be able to design interpreters or compilers for simple domain specific languages


  • Independently be able to apply distributed computing to implement robotic systems consisting of multiple computing devices
