Project
The main aim of the project is to design, develop and evaluate a new educational model of learning artificial intelligence techniques, methods and application. The implementation of the model can demystify the concept of AI and increase the interest of the target group in a career in artificial intelligence, which is currently only a rare choice of students' professional career in computer science study programs. Simultaneously, the development of knowledge and skills will help to deploy solutions based on artificial intelligence. Achieving the objectives will contribute to the development and improvement of higher education, which should ensure a level of digital skills of young people that will provide them with the widest possible opportunities for employment.

- find procedures for identifying fictional, false, and misinformation messages in the web environment primarily in the fleet type - find software and hardware tools for identifying emotions (facial expressions, changing body parameters, etc.) - identify the potential for linking fake news and emotions (project is supported by Scientific Grant Agency of the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic within the Operational Program Research and Innovation)
Project
Objectives: to implement and validate the IT training model for integrating the elements that today’s young people require in all their activities (interactivity, immediate feedback, learning at any time, anywhere, often within short time units, competitiveness, community communication) to increase the level of highly specialized knowledge and skills of graduates by applying a work-based learning (WBL), active-, collaborative- and problem-based learning approach in the field of software development and data processing with a focus on the latest technologies, to prepare students for lifelong learning, which, in the field of IT, even with an excellent university education, usually starts right after graduating from the university. https://www.fitped.eu/
