Teaching language

Suitable for English-speaking students


This course main goals are:

- to make students acquainted with Intelligent Systems, Interaction, and Multimedia research work.

- to make acquaintance with different researchers in Intelligent Systems, Interaction, and Multimedia and, through them, with different research groups active on the presented research topics.

Learning outcomes and competences

 Students should show their knowledge on at least one of the presented themes, through writing an article on the State of the Art or a small project assignment. The assignments (article and/or demonstration) should illustrate systems which are characterized by some “Intelligent” component related, for example, to its adaptation, autonomy, classification or inference capabilities or with an Interaction/Multimedia component. Main learning outcomes of this course are related to making students understand what can endow a computer system with a certain level of “intelligence” or "interaction" capabilities.
