Over the past week, I was able to make the following progress with my project:
– Came up with a detailed design of my project, which lists all the modular components and their functions. These components might change as the implementation phase takes place, but so far it will be a guideline to stick to.
– Discussed with my project advisor (Ajit) and agreed on a timeline, at least for the next 3 – 4 weeks, which divides the tasks of writing the paper, implementing the neural network and the Google Chrome extensions.
– Obtained the IBC dataset with 4,000+ labeled sentences from the authors themselves. This is the most crucial part of implementing, training and testing the neural network. I will spend the next week to learn about the dataset, do some data cleaning if necessary and start implementing the CNN in SciKit Learn.
– Installed SciKit learn and started getting myself familiar with the tool by taking a course on Udacity. Also read about CNN and MLP implementation in SciKit learn
