Added a Project, Any Requests[edit]

I added the project, I can add more stuff. I am looking for my lecture notes I gave to prep students on the project I post. Also, as a side note I'm new to the Wiki thing so any comments are welcome for sure. Mundhenk 23:46, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

I am going to add more to the lesson. I think I'm a little beat for the evening. Mundhenk 04:42, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

I've been thinking about dividing this up into sub-topics and getting some people I know to contribute. I might break it into

  1. Hopfield networks
  2. Hebian Learning
  3. Graphical Models (maybe its own field?)
  4. Feedforward models (what's here already)
  5. Biological Models (specific types such as Dominy-Arbib Model of grasping)
  6. Boltzmann machines
  7. Statistics and Neural Networks

I'm really really fishing for comments here. Let me know.

I'm playing around with a sub-departmental logo. This is my first idea.

possible project[edit]

I'm thinking that it would be fun to have a learning project designed around the goal of making a bot that uses a "neural network"-based approach to make a "more intelligent" bot than usual. I think this page --> Writing a simple greeting bot for MediaWiki could usefully be extended in an effort to make more than a simple greeting bot. For example, an "intelligent" bot could take clues from userboxes and other information on user pages and edits that are made in order to suggest pages and activities that might be of interest to individual Wikiversity participants. --JWSchmidt 00:25, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

General comments[edit]

  • It would be better if "college students" were a different colour in the figures
  • I can't quite figure out what all the letters are supposed to mean in those formulae - it would be much better if they were defined!
  • The exercise needs to be modified to explain where to get NSL from (http://nsl.usc.edu/) and maybe how to install it and load a file.

Overall, a nice tutorial, though - better than the notes our lecturers gave us, definitely! (The preceding unsigned comment was added by 80.193.199.192 (talkcontribs) 16:36, 25 May 2008)

Hello, thank you very much for your feedback.
  • Colors: What color would you propose then ? Perhaps even the images could be made completely new (and also involve more things like different shapes, ...) ?
  • letters: seems this User:Mundhenk made much contribution - he has listed emails on his user page. I will contact him and he or someone else may add the info on that page.
  • NSL: I think it is listed here (link + download link). About how to install I found this link. All in all your feedback suggests this should be presented perhaps at begin somewhere ?
Thanks again for your input, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) PS: Tag a learning project with completion status !! 16:59, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. Let me look it over and see if I can integrate the comments Mundhenk 03:48, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
