Machine Learning

Final Project


The final project is an opportunity for you to
use

machine learning techniques solv
ing

real
-
world problem
s
.
You can
choose a topic
from
the suggested

list,
or propose
other topics
, such as combining machine learning with pr
oblems in your own
research. If you choose your own research as
the

topic,
please note that it is not
appropriate

to turn in previously completed results without new things.


Project Proposal

Please
submit

a project proposal (1
-
page maximum) on
May 20th
.
I
nclude the
following information:



Your

name

and ID



Project title



Dataset



Project idea.

This should be approximately two paragraphs.



Algorithms

that
you
plan to program
.



Your reference.
Include 1
-
3 relevant papers


F
inal
R
eport

T
he end result of your final
project should be a written report clearly describing what
you have done
, including

the following information:



Abstract



Introduction and background



Methods



Experimental Results



Conclusions



Reference

In your final report, you should
explain in detail

how yo
u use machine learning
methods to solve your problems.


F
inal
Presentation

You need to
give a 15
-
minute oral presentation for your final project.
T
he
presentation should
cover the main content
s

of your final report in a brief and clear
way. Similar to the
final report, please stress the connection between m
achine
learning method and your problem.



Grading

Policy

Your p
roject will be graded
based on




O
riginality and creativity



B
ackground material



T
heoretical component



E
xperimental design and execution



D
iscu
ssion and interpretation of results



Overall performance of your algorithms



W

Suggested Topics


I.

Person Activity Estimation

Dataset:

Localization Data for Person Activity DataSet


Abstract:


Data contains recordings of five people performing different activities. Each
person wore four sensors (tags) while performing the same scenario five times.


Project Idea
:



Learn an a
ctivity model to classify or to predict activities.



II.

Crime

Prediction

Dataset:

Communities and Crime DataSet


Abstract
:

Communities within the United States. The data combines
socio
-
economic data
from the 1990 US Census, law enforcement data from the 1990 US LEMAS
survey, and crime data from the 1995 FBI UCR.


Project Ideas:



Construct
a crime prediction machine.



Explore crime
-
related attributes.



III.

dymedia)

Dataset:

GENDER training data

IV.

Object Recognition

The Caltech 256 dataset contains images of 256 object categories taken at
varying orientations, varying lighting con
ditions, and with different backgrounds.

Project Idea
:



Construct an object recognition system.



Unsupervised objec
t clustering


V.

Stock Value Prediction

Dataset:

Stock value dataset

Abstract
:

This dataset contains the closing prices of 159 stocks on 1813 dates
from Jan 3, 2000 to March 30, 2007
.

Pr
oject Idea
:



Construct a

sequential model

for
stock price prediction.
