Are you thinking of doing a software engineering related project next time?

I was, although I'm now reconsidering that. Basically, I think that passing a software engineering project is better than failing an AI project, but passing an AI project is better still. So, it depends whether I think that I can do that or not.

Of course you can pass an AI project, and do a PhD in AI as well - i guess it's more a matter of focused effort than anything else. If you'd like to review the field of AI before settling for a particular area within, why not read something like this, or this?

Perhaps you already have one or more of these books ..... what i mean is that if you really enjoy the area, you'd enjoy reading such books on your own, and it might help in choosing the most interesting area for the project.

Doing a software engineering project may be the safer option, but that's about the only justification for it - not enough in my book, but of course it's your decision.

Good point - I have the Russell/Norvig book, although I've only read one chapter of it so far (the one that was most closely related to my project), so I'll have a look through the rest of that in advance of the project list being published in December.
