Fall 2020

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours.

Section Description

Prerequisites: CS 225 (Data Structures) and the student should either be a senior undergraduate or a graduate student. This course "Meets With ECE 498 (CRN 61466/61467)" This course will introduce cross-disciplinary ideas, techniques, and algorithms in mobile computing, with an emphasis on how they can be composed to build systems and applications. Topics of interest include multi-modal sensing, energy efficiency, localization, context-awareness, gesture recognition, CPU-offloading, and data analytics. As an example, students will consider problems in indoor navigation, understand how ?signal correlation? may be an effective technique to solve the problem, and later utilize the same technique for a different application, say health monitoring. The course will end with a discussion of the longer-term challenges in mobile computing, and how techniques from different disciplines may need to come together to eventually solve them.
