Computer Science: Considering the user in IT Masterclass at Aston University

Wednesday 20 January 1.15 pm – 3.15 pm

Under the umbrella consideration of the user in IT, this session has two principle aims. The main aim is to expose participants to the perspective of computers possibly being capable of learning something very subjective: personal preference of pictures. Through this example, masterclass participants will see strong connections between computer science, evolution, generative art and learning. For Part 2, the main aim is to expose master class participants to the complexity of evaluating mobile technology use within labs and to let them experience not only being part of a pseudo-experiment but also to realise the problems associated with design for mobile platforms.

Aston’s Masterclass Programme provides stimulating workshops from Aston University academics at the forefront of their subject area. These free sessions offer a great opportunity for Year 12 and 13 students to enrich their current studies and to discover more about studying a particular subject for Higher Education.
