Courses

Advanced coverage of machine learning algorithms and applications to computer vision, data mining and social media. Specifically, the course focuses on data pre-processing, feature extraction, supervised/unsupervised learning, graphical model, deep learning, and other advanced machine learning topics. The course will also explore several real-world problems, e.g., visual detection/recognition, topics discovery, social media analytics using machine learning approaches.

Study under the supervision of a faculty member in an area not otherwise part of the discipline's course offerings. Conditions and hours to be arranged.

Prerequisites: Completion of three core courses.   Development of a detailed, significant project in computer science under the close supervision of a faculty member, perhaps as one member of a student team. This project may be a software implementation, a design effort, or a theoretical or practical written analysis. Project report with optional oral presentation must be evaluated by three faculty members including the project supervisor.

Offered as needed to present advanced material to graduate students.

A team-based learning experience that gives students the opportunity to synthesize prerequisite course material and to conduct real-world analytics projects using large data sets of diverse types and sources. Students work in independent teams to design, implement, and evaluate an appropriate data integration, analysis, and display system. Oral and written reports and ethical aspects are highlighted.

Vulnerabilities, attacks and current defenses and in-depth look at network security. Threats to computer networks through exploiting weaknesses in network design and protocols are analyzed and protection of data confidentiality, integrity and availability throughout the different network services are explored. Topics covered include cryptographic and authentication systems for data protection, network intrusion detection and forensics technologies, network security devices and access control mechanisms, communication privacy and anonymity, and new developments in Internet and Transport Protocols.
