Additional information on mode of examinationFor a bonus towards the final grade, the course will contain two optional assignments that are based on the contents taught in class. In the first assignment, students will work on a dataset of physiological signals. In the second assignment, groups of students will come up with a short proposal of a ubiquitous sensing device that tackles a problem of their choosing.
In each assignment, students can obtain a bonus of 0.125 for a total possible bonus of 0.25 at the end of the term. In the first assignment, the bonus will be allotted based on the prediction accuracy achieved by the solution in 4 possible steps. In the second assignment, the bonus will be awarded based on the completeness of the proposal, including specification, feasibility, physiological reasoning, and presentation, again in 4 possible steps.
