|School||School of Informatics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 9 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||***PLEASE NOTE: This course has been replaced by a 20 credit version - INFR09043 AI Large Practical, please see the entry for that course.***
The AI Large Practical gives students the experience of building a moderately large system, exemplifying a proposed solution to some AI problem. It also gives experience in running experiments, and reporting and analysing results.
Students will have experience in:
- Designing a well structured system
- Implementing such a system
- Designing and running experiments
- Reporting and analysing results
- Gentle introduction to the issues and requirements of the more demanding fourth-year project.
- Experience of reading published papers and identifying their essential content.
- Exercise of reporting on modest pieces of scientific work: students have to explain what they did, and why, and what conclusions they reached, and why, and they have to do this clearly and convincingly.
- Experience of writing programs to investigate specific questions: students must write well-structured, well-documented programs because they too are acts of scientific communication.
