Requisite(s): 42172 Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
This subject requires the student to plan and execute a substantial research-based project, using their technical and communication skills to learn, design, implement, analyse and evaluate developments in AI. It brings together the complete skill set learned by students in artificial intelligence. Students are required to carry out a specified piece of independent research in a setting that fosters the development of artificial intelligence skills. These skills include the capacity to express a research question: (i) showing how it relates to existing works; (ii) identifying the tools/methods needed to investigate the question; (iii) researching a systematic way; (iv) analysing the results obtained and presenting the outcomes in a clear, coherent, and logically structured report. In short, projects are set out to solve real-world problems in academic research or industry and may include Background and motivation, Data generation/collection, Data processing/cleaning, AI algorithm/analysis, Interpretation and communication of results.
Throughout the project, students are supported by an academic mentor and assessment through written reports, and an oral presentation is in line with expectations from academia and industry.
