CS788 Intelligent User Interfaces

by Kee-Eung Kim last modified Jun 21, 2011 02:35 PM


This is a research paper reading course. Basically, you will have to read the assigned paper(s) and submit a one page write-up in English containing

  • summary of the paper (at least 700 words)
  • 3 relevant questions

at the beginning of each class. (= homework for every class) Upload your homework to the course bbs.

Additionally, I'll assign presenters for each class. Presenters should be ready for a 40-minute presentation on the paper, as well as answer the questions.

Undergrad/grad artificial intelligence or equivalent (i.e., if you don't have basic knowledge about artificial intelligence techniques, you should not take this class)

Grading Policy

A: 60%, B: 30%, C: 10%

However, if you don't submit at least one homework, you are not guaranteed an A. If you have a business travel and have to miss the class, the homework is still due on the scheduled date. Late homeworks are not accepted.


  • 2/26 Orientation & Preliminary Quiz
    You will be asked to take a short quiz on AI/math problems on the first day of the class. If you lack basic knowledge, this class will be of no use to you. I'll have to turn you away if you do "very poor" on the quiz.
