Current events:

By any measure, the past few years have been landmark years for the discussion around artificial intelligence and its potential impact on business and society.  Being based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing systems are “systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally.” Cognitive computing solutions encompass machine learning, reasoning, natural language processing, speech and vision, human-computer interaction, dialog and narrative generation and more. IBM Watson is an artificially intelligent cognitive computer system capable of processing large amounts of unstructured data and answering to queries posed in natural language. IBM provides set of ready to use products as well as facilitates development of cognitive computing systems by providing building blocks in a form of IBM Watson services from the IBM Bluemix Cloud. 



Course consists of three modules with: a lecture (or set of short lectures) in each module, set of on-line materials/courses for self-study, group and individual assignments, demo sessions where students present the results and learn from each other. Completion of the Module 1 gives 1 ECTS, Module 2 gives 1-2 ECTS, Module 3 gives 1-2 ECTS depending on achieved results and personal involvement to the work. Depending on the student's development/management orientation, two sub-tracks for the practical assignment are available. More detailed information about the course structure and related materials available from the home page of the course (http://users.jyu.fi/~olkhriye/itka352/).

Learning outcomes:

Students will study basics of Cognitive Computing and other areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Knowledge Engineering and Smart Things related technologies. Students will be introduced to the IBM Watson cognitive computing solutions, and will try IBM Watson products and services. Students would be able to design and prototype own services and apps based on cognitive computing functionality provided by IBM Watson services from the Cloud. Students are able to choose subject related topic for their bachelor’s or master’s theses.


No prerequisites.
