Artificial Intelligence (2022)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the combination of data, algorithms and computing power that can perform tasks that would require intelligence if they were done by a human. It is impacting our lives, businesses and environment. As a subject AI will give students advanced skills and techniques to address the problems at hand.

  • 500 Level

    Code Paper Title Points Occurrence / Location
    AIMLX591Artificial Intelligence Dissertation30.022X (Hamilton)
    A report on findings of a theoretical or empirical investigation.
    AIMLX592Artificial Intelligence Dissertation60.022X (Hamilton)
    A report on the findings of a theoretical or empirical investigation.
    AIMLX594Artificial Intelligence Thesis120.022X (Hamilton)
    An externally examined piece of written work that reports on the findings of supervised research.
    COMPX521Machine Learning Algorithms15.022A (Hamilton)
    This paper exposes students to selected machine learning algorithms and includes assignments that require the implementation of these algorithms.
    COMPX523Data Stream Mining15.022A (Hamilton)
    Data streams are everywhere, from F1 racing over electricity networks to news feeds. Data stream mining relies on and develops new incremental algorithms that process streams under strict resource limitations.
    COMPX525Deep Learning15.022A (Hamilton)
    This paper provides an introduction into Deep Learning, focussing on both algorithms and applications. It covers both the basics of Neural networks and current mainstream and advanced Deep Learning technology.
    COMPX529Engineering Self-Adaptive Systems15.022A (Online)
    Software-intensive systems need to manage themselves to fulfill dynamic requirements in a changing environment. Self-adaptation is employed in clouds/datacenters, digital twins, networks, IoT, autonomous robots, etc. Adaptation challenges include self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing and self-protection.
    COMPX556Metaheuristic Algorithms15.022B (Hamilton)
    Metaheuristic are stochastic search algorithms for solving massive scale combinatorial problems where exact algorithms do not exist. This paper explores the state-of-the-art metaheuristics such as GRASP, particle swarm optimisation, and parallel metaheuristics, along with their applications in operations research, science and engin...
