Group Project

In this course, you will complete a semester-long research project in groups of 2 - 4. At a high level, successful projects will raise an important research question, and plan and execute a methodology for answering that question.
Often, this methodology will include building and evaluating a prototype system.
There are many creative ways to mock up novel systems. All projects require a evaluation — obviously a much more thorough study will be expected of projects that do not involve system building.
While there is no specific formula for conducting good research, there are a number of loosely ordered high-level steps. Your group project will subsist of a number of assignments that follow these high-level steps (linked later in this page).
For information on how the project will be evaluated, see the individual rubrics under each assignment.
Groups that do excellent projects will be encouraged to submit their research to an appropriate publication venue.
