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.
