Course Description

In this pro-seminar, we delve into the field of Interactive Intelligent Systems (IIS), which uses artificial intelligence technologies such as natural language processing. We focus on the design, implementation, and evaluation of these systems, taking into account both the AI technology employed and the user's interaction with the system. Interactive intelligent systems encompass a wide range of approaches, including AI-infused systems, recommender systems, mixed-initiative user interfaces, and intelligent agent-centered approaches.

Throughout the seminar, we adopt a human-centered perspective, emphasizing the interaction between the technical system and the human user. By exploring existing capabilities and limitations in the field of human-computer interaction, we aim to gain insights into how to improve the user experience.

At the beginning of each semester, we provide a comprehensive introduction to the specific topic for that year. Building on this foundation, students will have the opportunity to present and discuss existing approaches, methods, and implementations related to the topic. Working together, we will create a mind map that visually captures the collective understanding of the topic.

Each participant is expected to independently prepare, present, and discuss their chosen topic in the area of interactive intelligent systems with the class. These presentations will serve as a platform for sharing insights, exchanging ideas, and fostering critical thinking among peers.

Based on the results of the discussions, students will be required to produce a written scientific article that synthesizes the knowledge and insights gained from the seminar. This report will be evaluated, providing an opportunity for students to demonstrate their understanding and analytical skills.
