Competences

Technical Competences

Technical competencies

  • CE5 - Design and apply techniques of signal processing, choosing between different technological tools, including those of Artificial vision, speech recognition and multimedia data processing.

Transversal Competences

Transversals

  • CT6 - 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

  • CB5 - That the students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake later studies with a high degree of autonomy

Generic Technical Competences

Generic

  • CG1 - To design computer systems that integrate data of provenances and very diverse forms, create with them mathematical models, reason on these models and act accordingly, learning from experience.
  • CG2 - Choose and apply the most appropriate methods and techniques to a problem defined by data that represents a challenge for its volume, speed, variety or heterogeneity, including computer, mathematical, statistical and signal processing methods.
  • CG5 - To be able to draw on fundamental knowledge and sound work methodologies acquired during the studies to adapt to the new technological scenarios of the future.

Teaching methodology

The subject is based on classroom theory classes, problems and laboratory. The theory classes follow the program defined in this teaching guide. Within the lectures, the dialogue between professors and students is promoted by proposing exercises and activities to be carried out jointly based on particular aspects of the topic being dealt with. The laboratory classes exemplify the contents developed in the theory classes.

Evaluation methodology

The final mark is obtained from the partial marks:

- Mid-term exam: M (25%)
- Final exam: F (60%)
- Laboratory assigments: L (15%)

Mark = max (0.6F+0.25M+0.15L ; 0.85F+0.15L)

In the case of a re-evaluation exam (R), the final mark is

Mark = 0.85R+0,15L
