Click here to know the Current Project Groups.
CSL341: Team should consist of 3-4 students. The goal is build on some
existing piece of research work for a problem of your choice. A good part of the
project can be understanding and re-implementing the idea(s) presented in an existing set of research
papers. You should do a thorough survey before starting your implementation.
There should be at least some novel component (say 15-20%) where you enhance
an existing idea.
CSL 865: Team should consist of 2-3 students. Here the project
is meant to be more like a term paper. This should involve identifying/reading
existing research papers for a problem of your choice, understanding them well
and putting together a survey. You should also identify the potential
future directions for enhancing the work. A basic implementation (like a proof
of concept) would help strengthen your project (though it may not
be required in every case).
Here is a list of broad application areas that you can decide to choose your project
in. This is by no means an exhaustive list. You should feel free to pick an application
area of your own choice.
Instead of working in a specific application area, you can also decide to work
on a problem that addresses a core machine learning question (for instance,
proposing a new/improved version of an existing learning algorithm), though chosing
such a project may turn out to be somewhat more ambitious.

You may find the following page
useful for getting more ideas. In particular, look at the "Suggested Ideas" section. Also,
look at the pointers mentioned in "Feb 18th meeting" section. Note: You should ignore
the deadlines posted here, as we will have our own set of deadlines.
Pointers to Other Class Project Ideas
- We expect you to provide precise problem definition and the scope
of the work. Additionally:
- CSL341 students are expected to demonstrate basic implementation
and some preliminary results.
- CSL865 students are expected to provide a broad overview of
the papers surveyed till now and the underlying theme.
- Report should contain motivation, introduction/problem formulation,
related work, work done so far and work planned in the remainder of
- You will need to bring a draft of your mid-report on the day
of in person evaluation to faciliate discussion. It is ok to make
small changes to it before the final submission.

First Project Draft
- Submit a 1 page write-up of what you would be doing
for your class project. This should include problem definition, existing work, scope
of the proposed work and relevant references. You may refine some of the ideas as you go
along - that is fine. But you should make the write-up as comprehensive as possible.

- Deadline: Friday Aug 30, 11:55 pm.
- Submission Link - Coming Soon!
- Only one member in each group needs to submit the report.
- Late submissions will incur a penalty of 20% for every additional late day.
