Thesis: The Last Lap April 9, 2007Posted by nukemhill in Master's Thesis, Math/Science.
I’m on page 28. Gasp. Wretch. Groan. Is it done yet???
I’m hoping to be done with the first draft by Wednesday. I can give it to Goran for review while I work on the presentation. I defend on the 18th at 11am.
I’m already nervous. Scared shitless, actually. I feel like such a fraud. How can I possibly pretend to know anything about neural networks? I wish I remembered more math. Even some straight-forward Linear Algebra would be good right now. Eigen values and vectors? Meh. A distant memory.
Math libraries optimized for vector calculations (at the op-code level, preferrably) would absolutely shred on some of this code. It’ll be interesting to see how I can optimize some of this over the summer. If I’m not so burned out by then that I don’t want to touch it ever again….
Update: Ack! Just found out that my defense date has been moved up to the 17th!!!! I know, I know. It’s only one day. Nonetheless, I’m in a complete panic. Breathe, breathe, breathe….
