Humans and Intelligent
This course is taught by three different lecturers. This page
contains only the public content of the lectures composed by Dr. Joanna Bryson
Most content including suggested readings, assignments, and
discussion fora are available on the moodle page.
This course has four different but complementary objectives
(see further the unit description):
- To give students an understanding of current theoretical,
methodological and practical research issues around human
interaction with robots and other computational intelligence.
- To teach students relevant knowledge and skills related to the
design, implementation, evaluation and management of systems
involving humans and intelligent machines.
- To raise students' awareness of ethical and related
challenges and constraints around the coexistence and
collaboration of humans and intelligent machines.
- To give students experience of researching advanced topics in
computer science, summarising the current state of the art,
undertaking a relevant study and presenting the results.
Dr Bryson gives six lectures:

If you want to meet with Dr. Bryson privately, schedule an appointment
during her office hours; if there are none coming up, email
her. Please don't email
lecturers (or tutors) questions about lectures, course
content, or coursework – post those on Moodle forums instead. Questions
are good work done by good students (that's you!) Both the
questions and their answers belong to the whole class and should
appear in the Moodle forums. It's also easiest to get the
teaching staff's attention in lecture, lab and the moodle
Note that extension requests always go to your Director of Studies,
not to Lecturers. The best time to talk
to Dr. Bryson is often immediately after lecture (before
is OK iff everything technical seems to be set up, NOT if
she is fiddling with her laptop.)
