15-859(B) Course Project

One of the course requirements is to do a small project. A project might involve conducting an experiment or thinking about a theoretical problem, or trying to relate two problems. It could be reading 2 research papers and explaining how they relate. The end result should be a 5ish page report, and a 15 minute presentation.

Please send me an email by March 22 with a short description of your plans or ideas for your course project. Feel free to email earlier with thoughts or questions. You might want to take a look at recent COLT or NIPS proceedings for ideas. See also Nina Balcan's project ideas page for her course, and here are a few more ideas..
