This module provides the opportunity to students for demonstrating the application of the theoretical Big Data Science knowledge gained in the core part of this degree. Students are expected to identify and work with a collaborator who is taking ownership for the project. This collaborator can either be an industry partner or a researcher within one of the participating departments. Projects will be based on the entire big data life cycle as discussed in this degree programme. This includes the gathering of data of a significant size as well as a final technical report describing the process followed and the deliverables. Depending on the complexity of the project, students can apply to work in groups with a maximum of two members. The proposed project will be subject to approval by the Department Computer Science.
This module focuses on two Computational Intelligence paradigms, namely Evolutionary Computation and Swarm Intelligence.
