Project Proposal Presentation
Due: March 20, 2019 (in class)
Each team will explain their project idea in class in a short presentation. The proposal should provide
- The research topic to be investigated,
- What dataset you will use,
- Design overview and/or the model you will start with
- Related literature.
Due: April 24, 2019 (in class)
Each team will present their progress in class in a 16 min. presentation, which should:
- Summarize your project idea
- Briefly mention related work
- Describe your approach in detail
- Explain experimental setup
- Show results of a simple baseline
- State what we might expect at the end of your project
Due: May 3, 2019 (11:59pm)
Each team will submit a project progress report by May 3, 2019. The report should be 5-6 pages and should be prepared using this LaTeX template. In your report, please describe the following points as clearly as possible:
- Problem to be addressed. Give a short description of the problem that you will explore. Explain why you find it interesting.
- Related work. Briefly review the major works related to your research topic.
- Methodology to be employed. Describe the neural architecture that is expected to form the basis of the project. State whether you will extend an existing method or you are going to devise your own approach.
- Experimental evaluation. Briefly explain how you will evaluate your results. State which dataset(s) you will employ in your evaluation. Provide your preliminary results (if any).
- Preliminary results. Implement a simple baseline method and report its performance.
Final Project Presentations
Due: June 13, 2019 (in class)
Each team will explain their project in a 16 min. presentation. The presentation should focus more on the outcomes this time, otherwise the organization can be similar to the one in your progress presentation. Also describe the challenges you faced and briefly discuss future extensions of the project.
Due: June 16, 2019 (11:59pm) (No late submissions)
As the last deliverable of the course project, each team is expected to submit a project report prepared using this LaTeX template. The report should be 8 pages and should be structured as a research paper. It will be graded based on clarity of presentation and technical content. A typical organization of a report might follow:
- Title, Author(s).
- Introduction. This section introduces the problem that you investigated by providing a general motivation and briefly discusses the approach(es) that you explored to solve this problem.
- Related Work. This section discusses relevant literature for your project topic.
- The Approach. This section gives the technical details about your project work. You should describe the representation(s) and the algorithm(s) that you employed or proposed as detailed and specific as possible.
- Experimental Results. This section presents some experiments in which you analyze the performance of the approach(es) you proposed or explored. You should provide a qualitative and/or quantitative analysis, and comment on your findings. You may also demonstrate the limitations of the approach(es).
- Conclusions. This section summarizes all your project work, focusing on the key results you obtained. You may also suggest possible directions for future work.
- References. This section gives a list of all related work you reviewed or used.
