CIS Spring 2021 Projects

Project Ideas

Here is a list of the projects and each individual set of slides for 2021. These will be presented in class over the first few sessions of class.

Remember several points, however:

  • This list is not necessarily complete. More will be added.
  • You are ultimately responsible for finding and proposing a project.
  • You must get agreement from your mentors that your proposed project is one for which you are appropriate.
  • Your project does not have to be one of the ones in this suggested list. However, if it is not one of these, you should also get my agreement that it is appropriate for the course.

Resources

  • Google Cloud Credits: Some projects (especially those involving machine learning) many require significant computing resources. We have obtained a small Google Cloud Platform Education Grant to help support these projects. See the TA if you need a coupon.

A note to Project Mentors

First, thank you for mentoring a CIS II project this year. This course provides a great educational experience for the students, and also can produce useful research results. Its success depends greatly on the project mentors, and I hope that your experience this year has been productive both for you and for the students.

As part of our grading process, we are encouraging project mentors to provide some input. You all should have been granted access to the course web site and to the individual project(s) that you are mentoring.

We would really appreciate it if you can answer a few questions. Either edit the linked form and email it to me (rht@jhu.edu) and the TA (Max Li, zli122@jhu.edu), with a file name like “Project xxx mentors report.docx” or just sent an email with a similar subject line.

Finally, note that the annual final exam / poster session will be Thursday, May 6 from 6PM until about 9PM on Zoom (https://wse.zoom.us/j/635091574). I very much hope that you can attend. Also, the project reports are due on the day of the poster session, but the students have been told that you need an opportunity to review the reports before then. Also, we will need your comments to us by 9 PM on May 6, the day of the poster session, since we will be using them to help us with our evaluation of the projects.

Instructions to 456/496/656 Students

The links below point to the Wiki pages for your projects. You should follow the link. This will bring you to a project home page that you can edit once you log in. The two little gear symbols on the upper right give access to functions like login, logout, edit page, etc. The login/logout is on the leftmost gear. Note that there are many styles of Wiki, with different syntax. This one is “dokuwiki”. There is a link to help pages from the edit page.

The current default access settings are “read” for the CiiS lab, no access to members of the general public, and full power to members of your group. If you want to restrict read access to smaller group (e.g., all 456 students, etc.) contact Prof. Taylor. Prof. Taylor can also implement access control for individual pages if you so desire. If you want the whole world to be able to read your project pages, that can be arranged. Do not post anything to unprotected pages that you want kept private until you have arranged with Prof. Taylor to protect them.

Also, verify that each member of your group can log in. If you have trouble, contact Prof. Taylor via email providing correct name and JHED id.

Finally, if you want to give other individuals (e.g., your mentors) access to your project pages, provide name and JHED id to Prof. Taylor

NOTE: At the end of the semester, all projects will be made readable to the general public, unless you make arrangements otherwise with Prof. Taylor

Nondisclosure agreement for in-class discussion

As we discussed in class, some of the projects may contain potentially patentable material or other material that should not be disclosed publicly until a later time. In order to permit free in-class discussion of this material, we have developed a non-disclosure agreement. When asked, the entire class agreed to sign such an agreement, a copy of which is linked below.

  • If any member of the class has any reservations about this, please inform us immediately.
  • Also, class members are reminded to identify potentially confidential material on any slides or other presentation material used in class
