Master's programme in Computer Science is responsible for the course. The course belongs to following course packages and modules:
- Programming Techniques course package CSM14200
- Module in Programming Techniques CSM24200
- Software Engineering course package CSM14100
- Module in Software Engineering CSM24100
The course is available to students from other degree programmes.
CSM14201 Ohjelmistojen Testaus or other basic skills of software testing is helpful.
Basic knowledge of machine learning and other AI techniques is also useful.
The course will be offered in Fall 2019
The seminar focuses on the emerging topics of AI & Testing. It covers both directions: how to use AI for testing and how to test AI systems. The students can develop demos, do small experiments and record their results in seminar papers, or just do a literature survey. Suggestions to work on topics that arise out of student interest or work are welcome.
Topic specific scientific articles and additional related material searched during the presentation writing process.
For the writing a seminar paper, the specific guidelines from the ESE research group of the department are highly recommended:
The main phases and detailed deadlines will be announced in the first session. The seminar will start with 1-3 introductory lectures on the topic and challenges. It is followed by an independent working phase. Finally, a number of sessions (in 2nd period) will be devoted to presentations and demos.
Participation to all sessions is compulsory. The seminar sessions include lectures and workshops, e.g., paper writing.
A suitable length of a seminar paper is 6-10 pages, for demo paper (3-4 pages)
Each presentation is 20 minutes. Think carefully what to include and how much presentation material can be included. Each presentation is followed by discussion in which all are expected to actively participate.
The grade for the seminar is given based on the written paper (50%), presentation/demo (30%), and reviews given to other students and activity in the course (20%). Innovativeness in topic/content gives extra credit.
The seminar will be organised close to the format of a scientific conference with peer-review practice.
The student can choose between three options:
Create a demo of selected technology and write the corresponding demo description (See e.g. http://www.icde2013.org/cfd.html about what is needed for demo submission).
Develop and report an experiment in the form of a scientific paper
Write a literature survey in the form of a scientific paper
Each participant writes a scientific/demo paper (at least in the form and style) and submits it to the conference of the course. The paper will be peer-reviews by course staff and other seminar participants. In addition, everyone presents the paper as in a conference.
The course will use EasyChair conference management system in which the paper, reviews and revised paper will be returned. Details on accessing and using the system will be given in the beginning of the course.
The paper will be formatted using IEEE conference template, which can be found from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
Participation to all sessions is compulsory and any absence needs to be compensated as agreed with the course teacher.
