Eligibility

General entry requirements for Master's level (second cycle)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Specific entry requirements

English 6 (or by other approved means with the equivalent proficiency level)
Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling the requirements above.

Course specific prerequisites

Engineering mathematics and (preferably object-oriented) programming.

Aim

The aim of the course is for the students to gain knowledge regarding human-machine interaction, in general, and intelligent (software) agents, in particular. Such systems are relevant in many different fields, such as driving assistance, health and elderly care, finance etc.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

After completing the course, the students should be able to
  • Define and implement (in C#. NET) so-called chatbots
  • Define and impement (in C#. NET) so-called task-oriented agents, with particular focus on dialogue management
  • Analyze and compare interpretable models and blackbox models.
  • Describe and apply speech synthesis and speech recognition in intelligent agents
  • Describe and compare various different applications of intelligent agents
  • Discuss various ethical implications of intelligent agents
      Implementation of intelligent agents is carried out in C#. NET under Windows. Users of Mac and Linux must therefore install a Windows partition on their computers

Content

  • Programming in C# .NET for intelligent agents (throughout the course)
  • Image processing
  • Speech synthesis
  • Speech and voice recognition
  • Human-machine dialogue
  • Applications (various)

Organisation

The course runs over one quarter and is organized as a series of lectures combined with assignments. The assignments are carried out individually by each student.

Literature

A compendium and a selection of scientific papers.

Examination including compulsory elements

The examination is based on a project (a report should be handed in before the end of the course).

The course examiner may assess individual students in other ways than what is stated above if there are special reasons for doing so, for example if a student has a decision from Chalmers on educational support due to disability.
