This is a flexible 6 or 12-unit course which allows students to undertake a substantial research project on a machine learning and/or computer vision and/or Artificial Intelligence topic. Students will be expected to carry out independent research on this topic whilst working under a supervisor of an academic or a qualified researcher. The research project can be theoretical, experimental, design or development based on the interests of the student and the availability of supervisors. Project overview and assessment arrangements will be specified at the outset using the School of Computing form 'Independent Study Contract' where applicable. The output of the research project should include a written report and maybe examinable source code.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Formulate and clearly define a research question including appropriate scope, aims and constraints, and identify a suitable methodology to address the problem.
- Apply research skills and methodologies to source, critically evaluate, and synthesise research and technical literature relevant to the project.
- Apply advanced theory, concepts and technical skills to design and conduct experimental, theoretical or computational research tasks.
- Interpret the results and justify the conclusions.
- Communicate the context, motivation, methods, results and conclusions of the project in written and/or oral form, using language and content appropriate to the intended audience.
- To be determined by the convener (100) [LO 1,2,3,4,5]
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
The students should meet the supervisors as often as necessary. Nominally 20 hours per week.
