Problem with my FaceThingy

I have a problem where the zeroth index of my image array is failing to display (except for the first time). If you run the program, you can go forward normally and do all of the flips regularly, but then when you go backwards, there is a glitch. After displaying the second index, and then [...]

Kacie – Project Scoping

NEURAL NETWORKS History &  Significance Biological neural networks has been a topic of interest since the 1800s, when scientists worked to find out how neurons work and what they do. Eventually, computer scientists discovered that machine learning could work with artificial neural networks, as suggested by Alan Turing in his 1948 paper Intelligent Machinery. Basically, [...]

Lab 9: Learning Theory and non-parametric learning

Part 0: Learning Theory You are making the classifier for faces, and run your first test, and discover that your test error is 0.42, and training error is 0.35. What does this mean in terms of what the error actually is? What tests can you run to see what the cause of the error is? [...]

Lab 8: Decision Trees and Learning Theory

Part I: Learning In our general algorithm for handling decision trees, we can’t handle the case when the attribute value is missing. In real life, this happens all the time. This could happen because the datum was not collected, the datum had an error and was removed, or many other real-world reasons. Given the general [...]

Mike Precup and Martin Wickham project scoping

The first known computer simulation of evolution was done by Nils Aall Barricelli in 1954, but it wasn’t until Alex Frasier, a geneticist, suggested it in 1957 that the genetic algorithm (GA) was widely noticed.  The GA became more popular throughout the 1960s and in 1975 John Holland published “Adaptation in Natural and Artificial Systems,” [...]

Where Am I?

This is one of my favorite essays on consciousness and the definition of self and identity. It’s a really fun read, and it has quite a bit of relevance for the philosophy of AI.

temporary pathfinder -Kwisoo Park Joshua Tam

Pathfinder-Starter I believe this is the code for the pathfinder that Kwisoo and I made. I will have the search algorithm done in a day or two, and we still have to be able to redraw the nodes using coordinates in the text file. We had color, but I somehow messed up the code. Sorry

Lecture 7: Machine Learning

And so we dive into machine learning. The code example we showed today to get and display the images in a grid is here: List<BufferedImage> images = this.getImagesFromDirectory(“small/pos_skew/”); for (int imageIndex = 0; imageIndex < images.size(); imageIndex++) { BufferedImage image = images.get(imageIndex); this.getFrame().drawImage(((imageIndex/3) % 3 )* 200, (imageIndex%3) * 200, image); } And the Gettysburg Address [...]
