Special Topics in Computer Science - Modeling the Past: Digital Tech, and Excavations in Polis Cyprus
Readings and practical exercises will prepare students for the final projects for the course. The final projects are three-dimensional digital renderings of buildings uncovered through archaeological excavation. The challenges are (a) to use primary archaeological information as the basis for building reconstruction, (b) to develop new approaches and techniques for handling uncertainties in the reconstruction of those buildings, (c) to include 3D scanned objects in building spaces.
Design Project - 60%
Papers - 20%
Class/Precept Participation - 20%
Statistical, design or other software use required
The grading percentage for the Design Projects will be divided as follows: 20% will account for the midterm grade, and 40% will account for the final state of the project. Course structure: The class will meet once a week for three hours. Each session will be divided into two halves, the one half with a focus on culture history/art/archaeology and the other half with a focus on computer applications/techniques.
