Interactive Systems

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on the knowledge obtained during the 1st and 2nd semester

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The objective of this project module is to equip students with the abilities to design, build and test advanced interactive system integrating the more traditional information sources with information derived from e.g. computer vision techniques, speech recognition, and contextual knowledge, such as location. Information visualization and presentation can also be considered in an integrated way as well.

The students can freely choose the focus within the above-mentioned fields, however interaction design issues must be considered and elements of user involvement, such as user requirements gathering and/or end user tests must be treated.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must be able to understand how a particular system e.g. the Semester project of the student, relates to similar systems and, if relevant, to the surrounding society
  • Must be able to understand different aspects of user involvement in a particular system
  • Must have knowledge about methods and architectures for fusion of information
  • Must have knowledge about context-aware interaction.

Skills

  • Must be able to analyze how a particular problem, e.g. the Semester project of the student, relates to an end-user
  • Must be able to analyze a problem and, when relevant, suggest a solution that utilizes information derived from relevant modalities, such as vision, tactile or speech
  • Must be able to design and develop a system- partly or in full - that fuses information from several information sources.
  • Must be able to analyze the required response time of a given system and assess its potential for a realtime responsive implement

Competences

  • Must be able to communicate the above knowledge and skills (using proper terminology) both orally and in a written report
  • Must be able to select relevant theories, methods, and tools, and synthesize them in a new context to produce new knowledge and solutions
