You need to collect dataset of your own. DO NOT use clean datasets such as ones from MNIST. Beware of copyright!
You have to define your problem output clearly.
You have to explain your data cleaning steps and the results clearly.
If you're absent from a class for a good reason, you MUST provide valid documents to remit deducted points.
Homework is usually due in class on the
specified date. There will be a 20 or 40 percent penalty if you turn it in
one or two days later, respectively. No credit will be given after that.
You need to staple the pages of your homework together.
If your homework is not stapled, I cannot be responsible for lost pages.
You must do your homework by yourself. However, you may discuss
concepts with a friend. Copying is NOT allowed.
(For example, copying a program and then changing the
comments and/or variable/function names also counts as 'copying'.)
The students found with 'copying' will receive no credit
for the first offense, and, for a second
offense, will be dropped from the class with a grade of 0.
Cheating on any exam will warrant the same as a second offense
of cheating on homework.
