For details about the evaluation criteria for the project, as well as the logistics, please see the course outline in D2L. Here we provide some supplementary materials, some sample topics for projects, and an FAQ which will be expanded throughout the semester as we receive student questions.

Project Proposal and Final Report Template

We will be using the IEEE Conference template in a double column format for the project proposal and final report. The font size should be 10 or 11. The page limit for the proposal is 2 pages including all pictures, tables, and references. The page limit for the final report is 6 pages, including all figures, tables, and references. The use of Latex for writing up these documents is recommended but optional.

Project Ideas

You are expected to find a project that interests your group with the help of the TAs and your instructor. Since the project is the majority of your grade, you are expected to find a project that is considered "significant". Therefore, you must start early. Most groups will choose to replicating some of the prior work on reinforcement learning. For this you can look at the proceedings in NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, and other conferences. You can also look at kaggle competitions/datasets, or perhaps other open projects on reinforcement learning online.

FAQ

Will be populated soon.
