Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course will start with a part, where we study how a scientific article is constructed. The students will then, in groups of 2-5, choose articles in their sub-track (machine learning, natural language processing or bioinformatics), implement the method in the article and recreate the experiment. The type of project therefore will vary depending on sub-track, but the intended learning outcomes are the same for all three sub-tracks. The aim of the course is to bridge the gap between the courses in each sub-track and the degree project.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

  • read scientific articles critically
  • reproduce methods in articles
  • plan and carry out work in a group.

Preparations before course start

Recommended prerequisites

The student should have completed most of the courses in one of the subtracks of the track Data Science in the Computer Science masters programme.
