COSC 4P80 - Seminar

COSC 4P80: Artificial Neural Networks - Seminar

(Return to the main course webpage here)
For this course, you will be required to make a presentation to the class, during regular lecture time. It is expected that your presentation will last for approximately 14–16 minutes of presenting, and you should be prepared for about 5 minutes of questions.
Please remember that seminars are mandatory in order to earn Participation marks, and that missing more than one seminar will result in failing the course.
