News for COMP2111 in session 1, 2018


COMP2111 without Kai
As Kai isn't working at UNSW anymore, I (Liam) will manage all the day-to-day operations of this course leading up to and during the exams. I'll be responsible for grading assignment 3 as usual, as well as marking your exam. I'll also try to be more available on the forums to answer your questions.

If you have any queries about the course that you normally would have sent to Kai, please direct them to me instead.

As of today, I am no longer working here. Your questions on the forums will be answered by a yet-to-be-named replacement, who will also be responsible for grading your exams and finalising the marks.

Thanks for making this session such an enjoyable one to teach. I wish you all the best for your further education.

PS: Check the forums for a post on exam cheat sheets.

The future of COMP2111 will be 9 weeks of 2+2h lectures (instead of the 12 weeks of 2+2h we have in 2018) and 10 weeks of 1h tutorials (instead of 12 weeks of 1h). File under efficiency dividend.

UNSW strike
Tomorrow, on Wednesday May 30th, there's a 24h strike at UNSW. As far as I know, Liam cannot participate, which means that the tutes are on.

specs matter, even in ML
Under the tree, I mentioned an article about AI/ML worth reading. This article is a collection of cautionary tales about unexpected results from experiments in the field. You can read it as a sequence of lessons in something we always cared for in COMP2111: the spec matters, it has to be precise. The particular twist here is that it's not a human programmer who takes a short cut but an algorithm.

student requests
Because us academics are no longer trusted to make reasonable decisions in these matters, all student requests concerning a.o. overloading, requisite waivers, timetable clashes, course substitutions, progression checks, CoE extensions, credit transfers, and articulations are now to be submitted via the engineering website online forms.
