Learning and teaching
Students will have the opportunity to engage in discussions and take part in workshops on different topics.
LO1 - Gain knowledge and understanding of artificial intelligence
LO2 - Be able to work effectively in teams to design an intelligent system
LO3 - Demonstrate ability to communicate effectively on the topic of AI
LO4 – Be able to develop a simple prototype from a brief using existing skills
Students work in teams to undertake research into key topics. They work independently to produce presentations of research topics in the context of their application design concept.
Students produce a prototype working application that showcases their artificial intelligence concept.
