(January 22, 2018, 12:00pm) Just a reminder to come to class having read the two papers that will be presented this week. The papers can be found at the link to the syllabus at the bottom of this page.
(January 22, 2018, 12:00pm) Just a reminder to send me your top 5 paper presentation preferences by this Wednesday, before class, at the latest.
(January 21, 2018, 12:00pm) The slides I presented in the first class are available in the file Introduction.pdf in the Papers directory.
(January 16, 2018, 12:00pm) Reminder that tomorrow I repeat the first class for those that missed it last week (due to an admin error). Note that we have moved rooms, and are now in BA 7231.
(January 11, 2018, 3:00pm) On January 9 (the day before our first class), a one-week postponement (meant for a different course) was accidentally posted for our class on the department's graduate course schedule. As a result, a number of students missed the class, through no fault of their own. I will therefore be repeating the first class for those students during the next class (Jan 17); students that attended the first class can have next week off. The two students who volunteered to present the first two presentations will present instead on January 24 (one week delay). Finally, the course will be extended by one week to cover the syllabus (and week 12 presentations). My apologies for the inconvenience.
(January 11, 2018, 3:00pm) Lynda has secured us a larger and more convenient room for our course. Starting next week (Jan 17), the class will be held in Bahen (BA) 7231, except on Feb 14 and 28, when it will be held in BA 5256.
(January 4, 2018, 4:00pm) I'm looking for a volunteer to present the Witkin and Tenenbaum paper on January 17; I already have a volunteer for the Qi et al. paper.
(January 4, 2018, 4:00pm) The syllabus is now available; see the link below.
(January 4, 2018, 4:00pm) I'm searching for a larger room, as more people want to take the course. First class will still be in MS3290 to avoid confusion.
