Artificial Intelligence (2023)
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.

Code Paper Title Points Occurrence / Location COMPX301 Design and Analysis of Algorithms 15.0 23A (Hamilton) This course gives a survey of advanced algorithms and analysis of their performance, along with heuristic methods that include basic Artificial Intelligence techniques. COMPX307 Principles of Programming Languages 15.0 23B (Hamilton) The design, implementation and use of programming languages, in particular the use of functional languages to implement imperative languages will be studied. Assignments will involve challenging programming problems. COMPX310 Machine Learning 15.0 23B (Hamilton) & 23B (Tauranga) This paper introduces Machine Learning (ML) which is the science of making predictions. ML algorithms strive to be fast and highly accurate, while processing large datasets. This paper will use standard Python-based ML toolkits to teach the fundamentals of ML. COMPX323 Advanced Database Concepts 15.0 23A (Hamilton) This paper provides an introduction to the advanced features of database management systems. Students will learn to use and manipulate advanced features, and to understand and explore the technical background of large database management systems. They will have hand-on practice in using these features to create, query and maintain ... COMPX361 Logic and Computation 15.0 23B (Hamilton) & 23B (Tauranga) The syllabus includes: further development of predicate logic with application to program verification; mathematical induction including structural induction; finite state automata and regular languages; Kleene's Theorem; Turing machines, the Church-Turing thesis, universal Turing machines and the Halting problem; formal grammars a... COMPX367 Computational Mathematics 15.0 23B (Hamilton) Introduces numerical methods for solving various mathematical problems. DATAX322 Probability and Stochastic Processes 15.0 23A (Hamilton) This paper introduces students to probability theory and stochastic processes. It covers formally the theoretical foundations of probability, random variables, statistics, stochastic processes and Markov chains.
