I’m getting ready to start grad school in the fall. I’ve been e-mailing back and forth with my adviser and discussing potential classes. I’m pretty sure I know what I want to take:
|CS-352-1||Human-Computer Interaction||TR||09:35 – 10:50|
|An overview of human-computer interaction and problems of current interest. Human factors, GOMS, user interface design and evaluation, interaction modalities, distributed cognition, ubiquitous computing. A project involving design and evaluation will be performed.|
|CS-360-1||Advanced Artificial Intelligence||TR||13:10 – 14:25|
|Discussion of state of the art and current research issues in heuristic search, knowledge representation, deduction, and reasoning. Related application areas include: planning systems, qualitative reasoning, cognitive models of human memory, user modeling in ICAI, reasoning with uncertainty, knowledge-based system design, and language comprehension.|
|PSY-3100P-1||Statistical Inference||MWF||11:10 – 12:25|
|Introductory course designed to familiarize doctoral students with the principles and procedures of statistical inference and to prepare them for more advanced work in research design and analysis.|
I had hoped to have only Tuesday/Thursday classes so I could sneak off to Baltimore for long weekends, but that doesn’t really look possible. I could take a different CS class to make it work, but the psych statistics class is part of a plan to integrate some more rigorous testing methods into HCI evaluation and I like the idea.
