You may collaborate as much as you want on the ungraded homework problems. During exams you may not so much as daydream about working with someone else. On the programming projects, your submitted solutions must reflect your own work.
For the projects, do not copy from others or let others copy your work; however, you may think of the TAs as your close collaborators. Feel free to go to them with any problems that you are having. That's why they are there.
For any solution, you must cite all of the resources you relied on for coming up with your answers. This includes web pages, publications, people, and so on, other than the textbook, instructor, and TAs. You need to abide by the academic honor code of Georgia Tech.
Lectures are meant to summarize the readings and stress the important points. You are expected to come to class having already critically read any assigned material. Your active participation in class is crucial in making the course successful. I complete ly expect to be interrupted throughout a lecture with questions and maybe even your deep insights into the material.
Your final grade is divided into four components: homework assignments, projects, a midterm and a final exam.
All graded assignments are due by the time and date indicated. I will not accept late assignments or make up exams. Please do not push me on this. You will get zero credit for any late assignment. The only exceptions will require: a note from an appropriate authority and immediate notification of the problem when it arises. Naturally, your excuse must be acceptable.
Although class participation is not explictly graded, I will use your class participation to determine whether your grade can be lifted in case you are right on the edge of two grades. Participation means attending classes, participating in class discussi ons, asking relevant questions, volunteering to provide answers to questions, and providing constructive criticism and creative suggestions that improve the course.
From time to time AI research faculty at Georgia Tech will run experiments and studies that require human participation. You can receive extra credit points toward your final grade by participating in these studies and experiments. You will receive 2 points on your final course grade per study. You may receive extra credit on a maximum of 2 studies (for a grand total of 4 extra points on your final grade).
To get extra credit, use the following procedure:
We cannot guarantee any experiments or studies will be conducted in any given semester. Not all experiments qualify for extra credit. If you learn of an experiment or study that has not been announced, please contact the instructor and ask whether you can get extra credit for it before you participate.
