Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

This course will introduce students to the field of Ubiquitous Computing -- a multidisciplinary research area that draws from Machine Learning, Machine Perception, Signal Processing, Human Computer Interaction, as well as psychology and sociology. Class discussions and hands on exercises will be the focus of this class with a few formal lectures. Discussions will highlight the various challenges in data collection, representation and tractability of models, and evaluation. We will brain-storm ideas on how future research can go about tackling some of these challenges. Students will be required to lead and critique papers. Everyone will take turns presenting papers and in leading discussions. Participation in discussions will be evaluated as well as mini projects assignments during the term and an end of term final project.
