Run a project to find a social problem, to propose a solution, and to develop a system that solves the social problem and provides the social value through group collaboration. The project may involve not only software development but also hardware development. Learning of project management is also an important element.
Through this course, students are expected to gain the skills to:
1) Find and analyze social problems; propose a solution; design and implement required system through group collaboration.
2) Efficiently communicate technical issues among group members.
3) Plan and manage the progress of the project.
4) Give effective presentation for the project.

Groups of several students are formed. Each group sets a target problem and carry out a project for analyzing, designing, and implementing a system that solves the problem. Each group presents the result at the theme-setting, interim, and final presentations.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Target setting, project progress, the product of the project .etc are evaluated in the presentations and the final report. (75%)
Personal contributions to the project in each stage are evaluated by a self-assessment sheet. (25%)
Completion of "SCE.I406 The Machine Learning Framework" is advisable
