Students showcase their projects
The future of computer science and artificial intelligence will be on display at the University of Sussex next week, when postgraduate students share their project ideas with Sussex-based and national technology companies.
Guests at the poster presentation on 10 July will include representatives from BT Laboratories, EPIC, The Future Office, IBM, InferMed, Hewlett Packard Laboratories, MASA, Motorola UK Research Lab, Worth Media, Searchspace, VictoriaReal and Wired Sussex.
The students are on four Masters programmes in the University's School of Cognitive and Computing Sciences:
Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems;
Human-Centred Computer Systems;
Intelligent Systems; and
Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
One student from each of the four degrees will win a cash prize sponsored by InferMed for the best poster presentation.
Organiser Sejal Shah says the event aims to showcase emerging talent and to build relationships between industry and the University.
She says: "The students exhibit their work in the same style as is usual at conferences and gain excellent experience for future presentations. It is also valuable as a way of informing industry about the work being done at Sussex and of receiving feedback so that the students can improve their work."
