Topical Issues is a fairly unique course within the CS Tripos. It is intended to broaden horizons and to provide basic grounding in some hot topics in the industry. This means that the lectures are often standalone rather than being a flowing series, and the list of topics covered often changes to track current trends. Where possible, guest lecturers are used to get expert views.
The plan below is subject to change as the availability of guest lecturers can fluctuate at short notice.
