COSC 4P76 Machine Learning   


Project Details:

Topic

The project is in a topic on machine learning, the topic must be approved by me beforehand. You may propose your own topic related to machine learning (or choose one of my proposed topics, discussed in class). I will give details regarding choice of topic in class.
NOTE: You may work in pairs (and in veryspecial cases depending on scope of project I may allow group of three, but I rarely do). Of course you can also work alone, but I recommend working in pairs as much as possible.

Project topic proposal (Due date: TBA)

The purpose of the project proposal is: The project proposal must be at most 1 page long and include the following items:
  1. One paragraph that describes the project and the learning task in plain English
  2. A Precise description of the learning task identifying the task, performance measure, and training experience.
  3. Suggested choices for designing the learning system in terms of type and representation of training examples, type of neural networks, and the learning algorithm.
  4. Suggested experimental setup and analysis of results
  5. References to related material (publications, tools, web sites)

Project Report (TBA, by Early-Mid April)

The final project report (with supporting software) is due in April and is worth 25% of your final mark. Late submissions will not be accepted.
