Things have been going okay so far. I am currently continuing the machine learning course I was working on previously. I have had some problems with one of the programming activities in this course. The activity involved implementing the gradient descent algorithm. At first, the program I wrote just gave errors and did not work at all. I had to talk to a mentor on the forum, who explained the algorithm more clearly to me. However, even after that, the program ran, but I was unable to make it give the correct result.
I am continuing work on the original project as well. I will soon contact district officials for the final data set necessary for the machine Iearning algorithm, as well as use Weka to test even more algorithms on the data sets I already possess. I am also planning to start reading another machine learning book that I have obtained, called Foundations of Machine Learning.
