Artificial Intelligence [not available in 2020] major

The Bachelor of Advanced Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) will equip you with the skills and knowledge to understand, evaluate, design and implement artificial intelligence systems. You'll learn tools and techniques to develop and use artificial intelligence systems make a significant contribution to communities, the success of organisations and the global economy. You will study the philosophical, legal and ethical context for AI in real-world applications. Working alongside inspiring researchers and industry, you'll get hands-on practice in in a variety of contemporary artificial intelligence techniques, from knowledge representation to deep learning, developing in-demand skills and leadership qualities for an exciting career in AI.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) acquire the skills and knowledge to understand, evaluate, design and implement artificial intelligence systems; (2) apply contemporary artificial intelligence techniques, from knowledge representation, to deep learning; (3) discuss the ethical, social and philosophical context for AI technologies as they apply to real world settings; (4) work effectively as a team member and a leader for practical AI projects; and (5) extend knowledge in artificial intelligence through research, experimentation and analysis.
