The course is organized around weekly topics. For each topic, students connect to the relevant page on the web site. They will find some text to read, small open questions and small programming exercises that they can try on their own machine (or on the machines provided in the lab room). Your answers are recorded. For most questions, a possible solution becomes accessible after answering. Try to work on a weekly basis. Answers are no longer recorded beyond the deadline indicated for each topic.


There will be a small quiz (on paper, no documents) at the end of the course. The final quiz will consist in small short and independent exercises about Prolog, logic and other topics. Answers to lab exercises will be read and evaluated. They will contribute to the final grade (~40%). No documents, no functionning devices.
Examples of past exams:   202320222021
Questions not relevant for the 2024 exam:
Note that there will be questions about ProbLog in the 2024 exam while there are none in the past exams.


Lab sessions are in rooms equipped with machines, but your are welcome to use your own. We will be working with the free Prolog Interpreter SWI-Prolog.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions to teachers during the labs, they are there FOR YOU.
