Weekly Report -- 06/07/2012




Spent a lot of time staring at various statistics about major and minor events in my example data sets, looking for an obvious property that would allow me to separate genuine events and the false positives I am currently getting. Didn't have a lot of success, although I have managed to get rid of a few of the more obvious false positives.

Midway through the week, I had the idea of further sub-categorising events based on the "type" of event, e.g. spike events, level changes, increased noise. I'm hoping that there will be something specific about, for example, spike events that make them easier to identify compared with a binary "is this an event?" approach.

Prepared some more 301 content -- over half-way now and the semester hasn't even started.

Watched the remaining lecturer candidate presentations on Friday.
