# CS886 Course Project

- Pick an application domain that interests you
- Identify a problem in that application domain
- Analyze or propose some (reasoning under uncertainty) techniques
to
tackle this problem
- Optional: implement and evaluate empirically some of those
techniques

## Proposal

- At most one page
- What is the application domain?
- What is the problem you plan to tackle?
- Cite 4-8 papers that you plan to survey concerning this problem.

- What (reasoning under uncertainty) techniques do you plan to
propose
or analyze?

## Presentation

- 15 minutes presentation + 5 minutes for questions

- Concentrate on the big picture (do not dwell on the details)

## Report

- At most 8 pages
- Explain the big picture and any necessary detail

## Suggested Structure for the Presentation and the Report

- Introduction
- What is the application domain?
- What is the problem?

- Techniques to tackle the problem

- brief survey of previous work concerning this problem (i.e.,
the 4-8
papers that you read)
- brief description of any other relevant technique

- Analysis of techniques
- Comparison: advantages/disadvantages, scalability, ease of
use,
etc.

- Optional: report on your empirical evaluation
- Conclusion:
- What is the best technique?

- Can we solve the problem today?
- What future research do you recommend?
