Web Crawling As An AI Project

Christopher Brooks

This paper argues for the introduction of real-world programming projects into AI curricula, specifically using Python as an implementation language. We describe a modular set of projects centered around a focused web crawler, along with potential extensions. The author's experiences using this project in a class of undergraduates and Master's students are also discussed.
