General Info

Projects will be done in groups of two or three students depending on the total number of students in class. We expect students to spend significant time on their projects. Each team will have to write a paper (4-8 pages) as a final technical report.

Project Proposal

Students will have to prepare a project proposal presentation describing their project plan. You may check a few project ideas that we prepared for you. Each team may also come up with their own project idea, which should be related to the syllabus and approved by the instructors. You may check the resources link for publicly available source code and datasets, which can serve as basis for projects.

Project Updates

Each group of students will have to give two short update presentations in class describing their progress. Check the deadlines and the required content for the Project Update 1 and Project Update 2.

Final Project Presentation and Technical Report

Each team will have to write a Project Paper (4-8 pages) and give a Final Project Presentation in class summarizing the main project goals and accomplishments.
