  • IT-related brief survey (12 pages minimum) 的要求?
    A: 這份 brief survey 可以自行選擇有興趣的 IT-related topic,沒有主題或是格式限制。可以參考 course overview 的 applications、entropy journal 或任何相關主題。

  • Final Project 的形式?
    A: Final Project 已取消 codec ,一律改成 applications realize/investigate。
    - applications realize/investigate 分組1~3人並要求30分鐘的 presentation 及 report。

  • Mideterm IT-related Survey 與 Final Project Invertigate/Realize 的差別?
    A: 我們建議 Final Project 可以作為 Miterm Survey 的延伸(不強迫),所以應該要有更深入的內容以及自己的想法,
    或是一些 implment 的實驗結果,簡單的 reproduce/分析/改進想法也可以
