Paper Analysis and Discussion Assignment
Minimum of before class Sept 19, Oct 12, Nov 2, Nov 16, Dec 7
Your assignment is post a high-quality analysis of each pair of papers, respond
to other students analyses, and participate in the class discussions of
these papers. Your analysis should be between a paragraph and a page, but thoughtful
content counts more than length. Your analysis should be in correct and coherent English --
spelling, grammar, and punctuation count.
Post your analysis on Piazza, in the folder "paper_analysis".
Some issues you might address in your analysis are:
What are the similarities and differences among the papers in this group?
Which of these techniques "work" for you? Do you have a favorite?
What sorts of other ways might this kind of data be visualized?
How well does these techniques work compared to other techniques for similar
What are the limitations of these techniques? How could they be improved?
Could these techniques be applied to other applications?
Have you seen similar representations before?
Do these techniques seem relevant to your project or that of some of your classmates?
Your grade for this component of the course will reflect the thoughtfulness of your
analyses, the constructiveness of your responses to the posts of others,
the clarity and precision of your presentation, and the quality of your contributions in class.
While this grade is not directly about the quantity of your participation, you are expected
to be a regular participant.
