EE Day Reflection

One thing I’ve learned?

I’ve learned that the computer science EE requires a personal connection to be effectively embedded into it. I’ve also learned that you need to to the hardest things in your EE first before you tackle the things which you are sure of. Also the research data collection must be in line with answering your EE question, at points you can unintentionally stray off course.

What I’m proud of?

I’m proud that I have dedicated an entire day, focusing on my EE, so as to know the ups and downs and master the route and I’m going to take going forward. Planning and analysing are key to the EE and getting them done beforehand in much more helpful than panicking later on.

What I’ll be doing next?

Moving forward, I’ll finish writing my methodology and continue to tweak my introduction. Also I’ll get ready to conduct my primary research my conducting all the necessary tests and eventually conduct my research.


Reflection 1 (R1)

After careful considerations and preliminary research, I formulated my research question. Being from an Indian background, whenever I talked to people, it always troubled me that every next person had a conflicting opinion on political parties. So, to find the most efficient way to analyse these opinions, I decided to research on Sentiment analysis, I’m comparing the neural network approach to the algorithmic approach, using Tweets. So far the biggest obstacle I encountered was choosing a robust piece of software for each approach. Which I overcame after pre-testing and solving installation bugs. I’m looking forward to conducting my experiment because it widens my knowledge in the field of A.I. while also benefiting me on a personal level. For me, the next hurdle would be neural network training which I am looking forward to. I believe my research question is also strong due to the amount of benchmarking data available.
