CMPUT 656: Interactive Machine Learning

General Information


Tuesday 11:00 AM - 12:20 PM, Thursday 11:00 AM - 12:20 PM


How do you want to interact with AI systems? We don’t know what tomorrow’s AI systems will be capable of, but we do know that learning will be a critical component. Unlike traditional machine learning, interactive machine learning involves a learning AI and one or more humans. This can range from using humans to label data to human-in-the-loop to human-AI teaming.

This course will provide you with the background and tools needed to conduct research in this emerging area. The primary goal of the class is to conduct a pilot study that, if successful, could lead to a conference paper at a venue like AAAI, NeurIPS, or CHI. To achieve this goal, students will learn basic skills required for human research, engage with interactive lectures, and read and discuss current research.

Although the course will be recorded and made available to all interested students, students taking the course for credit will be expected to attend and participate in regular synchronous class meetings.
