CSCE 883: Problem Set 2

Due: Tuesday, 29 April 2003, @2pm

Upload Problem Set

Hands-on Machine Learning

For this problem set you will implement your own machine learning algorithm and test it with at least three datasets from the UCI Repository. You will can choose any of the learning algorithms we covered in class (except, of course, the one you used in PS1.)

Your tests should compare the performance of this algorithm to the one you implemented in PS1.

What to hand in

  1. The well-commented source code.
  2. A writeup that includes graphs of the training, and test errors for your three chosen datasets and
  3. an analysis of what worked, when, and why, and
  4. a timing analysis: how long did it take to learn? to run?

Submission Instructions

As will all the problem sets, you will hand them in using our department's dropbox.
