CS 285 at UC Berkeley
Piazza will be used for announcements, general questions and discussions, clarifications about assignments, student questions to each other, and so on. If you are a UC Berkeley student enrolled in the course, and haven't already been added to Piazza, please email Alexander.
If you are not a UC Berkeley student or not enrolled, but are interested in following and discussing the course, there is a subreddit forum here that we will try to monitor: reddit.com/r/berkeleydeeprlcourse/
All materials can be found on the front page.
All homeworks should be done individually.
For the final project, you may work in groups of up to three people. Each group will submit a report. The expectations for the project scope will increase depending on the number of students in each group, and for groups of two or three, we will also expect a short paragraph to explain the role of each group member along with the final report. From past experience, groups of two tend to be the most effective, though you may work in a group of three or alone. Groups larger than three are not permitted without special permission from the course staff. Note that you should form your groups before Oct 9, though you are strongly encouraged to do this much sooner so that you can start on your project.
- Homework: 50% (10% per HW x 5 HWs)
- Final Project: 45%
- Participation (lecture questions): 5% (To receive participation points, each student must post questions/comments on the lecture videos. Every student is required to post at least 5 questions or discussion points over the course of the semester, though more comments are strongly encouraged.)
