COMP6714 will be offered in 2017s2. We plan to
- introduce more natural language processing content, and
- use non-trivial python and Jupyter (ipython notebook)
Therefore, it is highly recommended for students to
- take a Data Mining (e.g., COMP9318) or Machine Learning (e.g., COMP9417) course before, and
- have a good grasp and fluency of maths (analytics, linear algebra, probability and statistics, etc.), algorithm design/analysis (advanced data structures, recursion, dynamic programming, etc.), and computer architecture (memory hierarchy, pointers, bit operation, etc.).
Motivated and highly competant students also have the opportunity to work on a research-oriented project instead of the usual assessments. Please contact LiC (Dr. Wei Wang, weiw@cse) ASAP to discuss the details and obtain the approval.
