Experiences with an integrated development environment such as Anaconda with Python would be an advantage.


This subject provides a general introduction to emerging topics in artificial intelligence (AI). Targeting emerging topics in AI, such as machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, search, knowledge representation, inference and reasoning, this subject highlights not only the concepts, definitions, and algorithms of these topics, but also their practical scenarios and industry applications. It is suitable for students who are enthusiastic about AI and motivated to conduct either academic research in AI or develop AI applications in the public and private sectors. Students have the opportunity to gain a general understanding of state-of-the-art AI topics and develop in-depth knowledge and skills in a specific AI topic, with an individual project supervised by UTS’s leading AI researchers. Students are required to demonstrate their learning outcomes through reflection, a quiz, a technical implementation, a research report, and an oral presentation.
