For the literature survey students should sign up as a team of two. For the coding project, the teams can be composed of two, up to three students . Coding projects can be done individually, as well. A maximum of two teams can share the same coding project. Please, sign-up for lit. survey/mini-project in the following doodle by March 10 2017: ML Mini-Project Doodle

Reports (+ code) for the lit. survey and mini-project must be electronically submitted on the course moodle webpage by May 19 2017: Moodle Submission Link
