Computing project exhibition 2023: Jazer Barclay, Computer Science BSc(Hons)

The final year project has given me the opportunity to test my metal and apply my knowledge in a project of my choosing. This has been, without a doubt, the most enjoyable module.

Please tell us a bit about your project

My project is a bespoke customer relationship management and point of sale software designed for a small, local kickboxing company in Bexhill.

I chose this project as I believe in the mission statement of the business. They provide support for the public, adults, and juniors with physical or learning disabilities to help improve their hand-eye and mental coordination through regular training and practice. I would love to see this small business flourish.

They displayed a real need for help for keeping track of member lesson payments and attendance. With the skills that I had acquired over the past two years and discovery meetings with their staff, I felt that I had the toolset required to build them a custom solution to meet their requirements.

Through my scholarship, I have access to many great minds in my workplace where I could ask important questions to help sculpt my project at all stages of the development process. Combined with the guidance from my supervisor, Dr. Khuong An Nguyen, I was able to build and deploy this software for their use.

University of Brighton joins AI project to save lives on the battlefield

Experts from the University of Brighton are part of a UK project to develop an innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) drone which will aim to save lives on the modern battlefield.

Project ATRACT, which stands for A Trustworthy Robotic Autonomous system to support Casualty Triage, will see the development of a flying drone that can assist and speed up triage in the critical post-trauma minutes that shape battlefield survival chances.

The project is being developed in reaction to changes to the modern battlefield that make traditional evacuation by helicopter impossible.

Meet Dr Sanaz Fallahkhair

Dr Sanaz Fallahkhair is a Principal Lecturer in Human Computer Interaction. Sanaz’s research interests include human-centred development of new technologies that incorporate studies of user’s experiences, cognition and collaboration in designing a novel intelligent systems delivered via multiple platforms: mobile devices, interactive television, tag-based technologies, wearable technologies, and robotic interactions.

Why I wanted to get into teaching

I always been interested in understanding the universe in scientific, and artistic perspectives. It may sound controversial but to me the combination of science, art and humanity together can only triumph. Exploring a potential of novel technologies into designing something useful, usable and accessible was my aspiration when started to purse career into software engineering through my UG degree and later to PG and PhD.

My first year so far

Minas Fakhori is one of the first year Computer Science BSc(Hons) students that took part in the latest Codefest, a monthly software development event that brings together students, industry experts and the latest technologies in computer science.

Here is what he said about his year so far:

“AI is going to be a huge field in the future, and that’s why I  chose University of Brighton. University of Brighton focuses on AI while keeping the modules diverse enough to enter a different field if you chose to. The reason I chose Computer Science, is that I always had a passion for coding and making things, I find problem-solving exciting and Computer Science has all those aspects in it.
