The Emerging Technologies course will expose students to the topics and current state-of- the-art in a small set of broad emerging technologies topics. The course will focus on high-demand applications of CS knowledge and theory. Specifically, this will be an exposure to the myths and realities of several (often misunderstood) emerging technologies (e.g., IoT, cloud computing) and a critical deep dive into a research topic within the domain. Students will be expected to read and understand a whitepaper describing the current gaps in topic applications along with understanding and presenting on a peer-reviewed publication within the domain. Students will present an introduction to the technology as well as an analysis of the quality of the peer-reviewed paper's methodology, findings, and conclusions and make their own judgements or recommendations on the focus or next steps of the research.
This course will expose students interested in a career in research to a variety of modern
emerging technologies. The technologies covered in the course are of current high interest
The course will focus on concepts and the current state-of-the-art of technologies to include the following:
