Competences

Transversal Competences

Transversals

  • CT6 [Avaluable] - Autonomous Learning. Detect deficiencies in one's own knowledge and overcome them through critical reflection and the choice of the best action to extend this knowledge.

Basic

  • CB2 - That the students know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and possess the skills that are usually demonstrated through the elaboration and defense of arguments and problem solving within their area of ??study.
  • CB5 - That the students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake later studies with a high degree of autonomy

Technical Competences

Especifics

  • CE01 - To be able to solve the mathematical problems that may arise in the field of artificial intelligence. Apply knowledge from: algebra, differential and integral calculus and numerical methods; statistics and optimization.
  • CE02 - To master the basic concepts of discrete mathematics, logic, algorithmic and computational complexity, and its application to the automatic processing of information through computer systems . To be able to apply all these for solving problems.

Generic Technical Competences

Generic

  • CG2 - To use the fundamental knowledge and solid work methodologies acquired during the studies to adapt to the new technological scenarios of the future.
  • CG4 - Reasoning, analyzing reality and designing algorithms and formulations that model it. To identify problems and construct valid algorithmic or mathematical solutions, eventually new, integrating the necessary multidisciplinary knowledge, evaluating different alternatives with a critical spirit, justifying the decisions taken, interpreting and synthesizing the results in the context of the application domain and establishing methodological generalizations based on specific applications.

Teaching methodology

Different methodologies will be considered for theory classes and problems. Theory classes will consist mainly of master classes, based on presentations and explanations on the board; problem classes will consist of solving exercises and practicing concepts learned in theory sessions.

Evaluation methodology

Subject assessment consists of three parts: P, F, T.

Grade P comes from a midterm partial exam.
Grade F comes from a final exam.
Grade T comes from the resolution and delivery of problems throughout the course.

Final grade is computed as:

FinalGrade = max(0.50F+0.30P+0.20T, F)

Transversal Competence (Self Learning) assessment will be done according to the final grade as following:

A: 8.5 - 10
B: 7 - 8.4
C: 5 - 6.9
D: 0 - 4.9
NA: NP
