Full course description
Project 3-1 consists of two distinct paths: projects at DKE with focus on university research and DKE/BSSC/BISS projects with focus on applied research proposed by companies that are affiliated with BSSC (Brightlands Smart Service Campus). The DKE/BSSC/BISS projects are facilitated in cooperation with BISS (Brightlands Institute for Smart Society). In the first week of period 1, students indicate their preference by ranking these projects. Groups are created by means of an algorithm that minimizes regret and allocates students to their most preferred options.
About the DKE projects: Students work in small groups, guided by teachers of the subjects concerned and by the tutors. During the project, students apply their knowledge in data science, knowledge engineering, and artificial intelligence to robotic and other intelligent and autonomous systems. Depending on their chosen specialization within their project group, students study and search for solutions in at least one, typically in multiple of the following fields: control, machine learning, computer vision, signal processing, human-computer/robot interaction, multi-agent and distributed systems, optimization, data visualization as well as modelling and simulation.
About the DKE/BSSC/BISS projects: Students participate in small groups and receive guidance from a tutor, a teacher with knowledge of the subjects concerned, and a content expert from the company. Furthermore, the students receive business related skills such as creating business presentations from a teacher at BISS. Students learn how to apply their knowledge in data science, knowledge engineering, and artificial intelligence to solve real-world problem that arise in a professional environment, and how to interact with a client from the industry.
Project 3-1 will start in period 3.1 and period 3.2 with weekly meetings. The credits for the projects will become available at the end of period 3.3.
