Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to gain an overview of the current state of research in the field of intelligent systems and ambient intelligence. Students will become familiar with the theoretical basis for the research of the multi-agent architecture of intelligent environments, with ethical issues, security and protection of personal data and information, enabling them to further the expected direction of the research.
Students obtain knowledge in given course in accordance with requirements and course programme.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral exam, Essay

Preparation and successful presentation of the project.
