Teaching

  • CS-150 Concepts of Computer Science 1

    This module along with CS-155 gives an overview of some of the main principles underlying computers and computing from both a theoretical and an applied point of view. Following a brief history of computers and software an introduction to the representation of data and the basic components of a computer will be given. Students will be introduced to the principles of programming at assembly language level. The module is accessible and relevant to students of all disciplines who wish to learn about, or reinforce their understanding of, computers and computer science.

  • CSCM35 Big Data and Data Mining

    This module introduces students to the fundamental topics of data mining, including data pre-processing techniques, applied probability and statistics, data mining algorithms (incl. associate rule, classification, clustering, outlier detection and probabilistic graphical model), and big data frameworks.

  • CSCM38 Advanced Topics: Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security

    This module introduces students to the state-of-the-art methods and research topics of artificial intelligence, cyber security, including quantum computing, data science, deep learning and reinforcement learning. The inspiration behind these approaches will be discussed, along with their relative merits for application in cyber security.

  • CSDM03 Computational Thinking skills for Digital Social Scientists.

    This module will discuss some of the most widely used and artificial intelligence and machine learning, regression & clustering techniques and their applications to big data social science questions. The students will gain and understanding of both strengths and weaknesses of learning and practical know-how in applying those theories to real world problems. Topics include big social data concepts, data mining, learning theories, supervised and unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning.

  • CSLM35 Big Data and Data Mining

    This module introduces students to the fundamental topics of data mining, including data pre-processing techniques, applied probability and statistics, data mining algorithms (incl. associate rule, classification, clustering, outlier detection and probabilistic graphical model), and big data frameworks.
