About this Unit
The information and communications technologies are advancing at an ever-increasing rate. The whole world is now interconnected. The World Wide Web community is actively engaged in developing the next generation of the Web. Social networking on the Internet is facilitated by the latest developments such as Facebook, YouTube and MySpace. Artificial Intelligence is increasingly intertwined with the decisions we make every day. Large scale storage technologies are leading to Cloud Computing where data and applications may reside anywhere in the world. Research in how to access meaningful data from the vast amounts on the Web has led to initiatives such as Semantic Web and Linked Data. Mashups mix data from disparate sources to enable users to work more efficiently. Wireless and mobile computing are changing the market place. All of these trends are still in their early stages. To make sense of all these developments, the top echelons of the World Wide Web Consortium are actively engaged in creating a new discipline called Web Science. Advanced Topics in ICT will enable the students to appreciate the scale of new developments and create prototypes of applications in their desired ambit. This unit consists of three Topics selected each semester. Assessment will be by a series of discussion paper assignments here students will show they have met the unit learning outcomes.
