You have a chance of earning bonus points in the AI course by recording a
presentation on an AI-related topic. This activity gives you the chance to
freely explore and present concepts of AI you are passionate about that are not
covered in the course including state-of-the-art advancements. The presentations
are short and the slide number is limited. So, you need be concise and to-the-point.
Compose something you will be proud of!
Please read carefully the following guidelines and adhere to them:
Points: Maximum bonus points that can be earned from this activity is 10%
of total course points: Maximum 5% from the verbal presentation and another
5% on the quality, organization, and coherence of the slides.
Limits: Aim for a 7-minute presentation. It may not be less than 5 or more
than 9 minutes. You can include short external videos in your presentation,
but the presentation duration without them should be above the minimum, and
with them below the maximum. Going over/under these limits will cost you
points. Aim at 10 slides – keep the number above 7 and below 13 slides.
Anything other than the main body of the presentation (e.g., title and
references, etc.) are excluded from the slide limit count.
Topic: We have provided a list of suggested topics from which you could
choose one (see below) or you can also pick a topic that you are interested
in that is not in the list. Appropriateness and significance of the topic
will be evaluated in peer-review.
Structure: Presentation and slides need to be to-the-point and, at the same
time, self-sufficient. Address all points agreed on for the chosen topic
(More details below).
Format: Record your presentation as a video showing the slides and the audio
of you presenting as a minimum (you can record yourself as well). You can use
Panopto video recording software to create your presentation video (For

Referencing: Plagiarism is strictly prohibited! Read source material to
gain information on the chosen topic. Digest what you have read and write down
the things in your own words. When you want to make a direct citation
acknowledge the original publication. Proper referencing is important and is
thus also graded.
Grading: This activity is peer-graded, which means that after you submit
your video and slides, you get assigned 3 of your peers’ slides and
presentations to grade based on the following criteria. Keep in mind that in
order to receive points you have to complete the grading part as well. Grading
Criteria is generally as follows:
