Worked on the poster and got it printed. Copy of the poster attached.
This week, I was focused on making the poster and including the final results of my research.
Here is an updated machine learning pipeline for my project.
Submitted the CS second draft on Wednesday and waiting for Xunfei’s Feedback. The demo presentation went well without much questions from the audience. On working on making the poster for the presentation on Dec 5.
Met with Ajit to talk about the follow up steps on Monday. Based on the feedback, we decided to focus efforts on the following: Updating the design framework/diagram, Writing and explaining the design of the project, Read other published papers … Read More
Worked on the demo presentation. Experimented with 2 datasets each taking 4 hours of run time. One observation I found is that changing the labels of the fake news changes the accuracy. It was found that detecting reliable news rather … Read More
Did second pass for more papers for this week, focusing on the design, and processes used, Met with Ajit on Monday to discuss the project and plan rest of the semester, Took Quiz 5 for Project update.
The front end development part for my project is almost complete. The database setup and connection is completed. The integration of backend machine learning model with flask has worked. The flask prediction model has also been linked with the frontend. There … Read More
Did second pass for three papers for this week, Worked on First draft for proposal.
Worked on the front end component of the project. With the sys admin telling me that they cannot host flask for my project. I started to look for alternatives. Heroku could not be used as it did not provide support for … Read More
Did second pass for three papers, posted on the box, Took Quiz 4 for CS388, Chose 3 papers for next week.
Finished the machine learning pipeline with actual experimentation. Having issues getting Flask setup and have been in touch with the SysAdmins. Halfway through the first draft of the paper. Made new design for the system architecture.
Finished literature review. Selected 1 topic from the remaining two for Quiz 3 (proposal)
I did an experimentation with Sci-kit Learn. The run-time for the program was more than 2 hours. Testing the multiple dataset has been an issue lately.
Progress on the draft of the paper. Related works is almost completed.
Started 2nd pass for the papers. Continued work on literature review.
Worked on the first draft of the paper. Focusing on the related works and findings currently.
Finished bibliography. Selected two topics and prepared topics presentation. Started literature review.
In the past week, I have been working on the related for my three project ideas. I wrote an annotated bibliography for each topic with five different sources. This week got rid of one of the ideas and decided to … Read More
Build a rough machine learning pipeline for testing. Worked with Ajit to update timeline. Started with the first draft of paper.
Continued working on Annotated Bibliography: Found more papers on the topics, Did the first pass reading for all of them.
Created a smaller dataset using pySpark for training and testing the fake news model.
I’ve been researching Voronoi graph regions and their usage in recommendation system. I’m particularly interested in finding open-source implementation of Voronoi graph regions usage. I’ve also been reading and researching FiveThirtyEight’s gerrymandering maps and how they created their maps of … Read More
Met with Andy Moore and talked about projects regarding natural disasters. Realized that many of the ideas were too big for a semester, and started researching in Earthquake Early Warning systems Worked on Quiz 2, and collected papers for each … Read More
Worked with setting up sci-kit learn and testing environment. Got Craig to give me access to Pollock and Bronte.
Read the papers about how to read a paper. Met with Michael Lerner regarding one of the strategies talked about in his research last year. Found 5-7 papers related to each of the three topic areas. Attempted the Quiz 1 … Read More
Met with my advisor twice, worked on an updated timeline. Worked out a design framework and prepared the presentation slides.
Met with Ajit to filter ideas regarding parallel computing, and machine learning. Emailed Andy Moore in Geology to talk about Earthquake and Tsunami predictions. Emailed Charlie for suggestions regarding my Structure From Motion idea. Searched for more specific details on work … Read More
