PROGRAM

Interactive Media Design

This course aims to be a core course, connecting the different fields covered by the master program, such as, interaction design, multimedia, human-computer interaction and digital media. It will include an historical and critical approach as well as a theoretical and practical dynamic. It will allow the study of interactive media on different perspectives, including technological, design and digital content production. It aims to promote the understanding of the complexity and multidisciplinary of the interactive media that will be taught in detail in each course of the program. In
addition, the course aims to provide the same knowledge skills to all students, even if they have different backgrounds, such as media design, visual arts or engineering/science.

3D Project

– Basic geometric modeling methods, using CSG, boolean operations, and various types of geometric modifications.
– Advanced geometric modeling methods, using mesh modeling and modifications at sub-object level.
– Texture design and texture mapping.
– Lighting and camera work.
– Camera movements and object animation.

Interaction Design Methods

This course is intended to make students effective, professional system designers and analysts. This course builds upon students’ backgrounds in a few specific ways:
Work from data – Many of us have good intuitions about design, but we all need to ground our work on the real needs of users and the obstacles they perceive in achieving their goals.
Work in teams – Whatever our skills are, we will need the skills of others to be effective.
Communication – Even when we know what should be done, many contexts demand that we convince others using numbers, pictures, or stories.

Elective 1

To choose among  Design of Technologies for Health and Wellness, Artificial Intelligence & Game Design, Human Factors, Interfaces & Interaction Design, Multimedia Systems

Programming Usable Interfaces

This course is a combination programming course and design studio, and is for those who wish to express their interactive ideas in working prototypes. Students will learn how to use programming languages, how to design and implement effective GUI interfaces, and how to perform rapid, effective iterative user tests. They will also explore advanced interaction and interface techniques. The course will cover usability testing of interactive prototypes. It will also cover important subjects related to distribution of software products, selling in determinate vs. indeterminate markets, case studies and contextaware apps.

Interactive Visual Storytelling I

This course designed to cover elements of narrative, interactive media, digital art installations, service and experience design drawing from the above mentioned disciplines goals and methodologies. In
interactive art the audience plays an active role in the fruition of the work and the link with a service experience gets
even stronger. Interactive narrative art projects happen in a context and involve many stakeholders. The interactions can happen at many levels, from people to people, to people to machine and machine to machine. Mixing art, design and
service design tools can give a fuller role to the context and the audience of the art work. Identifying all stakeholders and
involving them in the process can also guarantee the sustainability and full expression of the art work and open the
doors to new kind of format for art projects as well as service models.

Game Design

The aim of this curricular unit is to prepare students for a career that involves the development of computer games and other interactive experiences. Students in this curricular unit will read and write about games design and develop their own games. This is not to be confused with a computer games development course. The curricular unit focuses on the rules and methods for the design of the game, that remain relatively constant regardless of the technology used to develop a game. While technology plays an important role in our studies, technical details will not be our focus. The student will study and design all types of games: card games, dice games, sports games, history, and yes, even video games. How to design games, project them as well, and how to track their projects to completion it’s whar the student will be studying.

Elective 2

To choose among Service Design, Interfaces & Interaction Design, Virtual Realities, Embodied Interaction, Advanced Topics in Informatics.

Virtual Realities

The main objective of this course is to take students to a deeper level of understanding regarding the various conceptual aspects involved in creating environments based on virtual reality techniques, adopting a culturally based critical point of view. This means understanding the ways in which, in various historical periods, spatial experiences and formal approaches are informed by cultural streams that carry the brand of contemporary social, political and economical ideologies. But also means developing an informed conscience about the way we think these problems today. This doesn’t concern only the construction of an abstract conceptual model to deal with the problem of understanding our activities in the domain of creating structured virtual universes. It also has very concrete consequences in the design of virtual universes and it is the knowledge and understanding of these consequences to their own work that are to concern the students of this course.

Artificial Intelligence and Game Design

The purpose of this course is for graduate students to gain a breadth of understanding in the toolbox of AI approaches employed in digital games. This involves learning/reinforce some basic topics covered in other AI courses, but with a focus on applied knowledge within the context of digital games.
Ability to identify, formulate and solve problems.
Understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
Recognize the need and have the capacity for learning throughout life.

Interfaces & Interaction Design

Explore the fundamentals of interfaces and interaction design process while learning about fundamental concepts, methods, and practices of interaction design. Explore the ideas of “form follows interaction” and “be the user”. Explore the role that interaction with products plays in mediating relationships between people and people, people and places, and people and products. Improve your ability to present your design ideas. This course is composed by studio class with a few theoretical lectures. The goal is to work on a series of design assignments, and actively participate in exercises and peer evaluations. The assignments are mostly group work and results will be critiqued in class throughout the course.

Area of Research: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Logics for  Artificial Intelligence, Belief Revision.

My focus of research is the area of Belief Revision (Logic of Theory Change): BR theory studies the impact of acquiring new information. It is a fundamental activity of human intelligence, and it defines an exciting and significant research area in philosophy, logic and computer science. Belief revision theory provides sound modellings for changes of beliefs in response to new information.
In the logic of theory change, the AGM model has acquired the status of standard model (Alchourrón, Gardenfors, and Makinson 1985). The AGM model aims to characterize the dynamics of beliefs of a rational agent. A change consists in adding or removing a sentence from a set of beliefs to obtain a new set of beliefs. This change obeys the following principles: 1. Primacy of new information: the new information is always accepted. 2. Coherence: the new set of beliefs has to be logically consistent. 3. Minimal change: a minimal loss of information contained in the previous beliefs, that is it attempts at retaining as much of the old beliefs as possible. Even though, the AGM model is considered a standard model, it seems to be inadequate in many contexts. Consequently, in the last 30 years extensions and generalizations of AGM has been proposed (Fermé and Hansson 2011).

My main work in the area consists in define new models for belief change, based in the AGM model, extending or modifying the standard model in order to adequate it to different situations. In particular my work was to define new models for belief bases, for non-priorityzed belief change, for iteration and for multiple belief change.
The main results of my work was published in the journals Artificial Intelligence, Journal of Philosophical Logic, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Studia Logica, Logic Journal of the IGPL and Journal of Logic and Computation. In terms of Conferences/Workshops, my work was presented in ECAI – KR – WOLLIC as well as specific workshop of the BR community in Dagsthul and Madeira.
An outcome of my work was published (with Sven Ove Hansson) a special issue for the 25 years of the AGM theory (2011. “Special Issue on 25 Years of AGM Theory” – Journal of Philosophical Logic Volume 40, (2)) and a review of the literature of the belief revision area in the last 25 years (2011 “AGM 25 Years: Twenty-Five Years of Research in Belief Change” Fermé and Hansson. Journal of Philosophical Logic 40, (2) : 295-331.). This review was the basis for a 4 hour tutorial in the IJCAI 2013: “Belief Revision: From 1985 to 2013”, Beijing.
