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 Kevin.
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.
Late days may not be used for quizzes, final project proposals, final project milestone reports, final project reports, or any of the project peer review reports, only for the five homeworks.
- Homework: 50% (10% per HW x 5 HWs)
- Final Project: 40%
- Quizzes: 10%. Your quiz grade for each lecture will be the max of the first try and second try, so if you take the quiz and don't like your grade, you can take the "second try" quiz (during the 48 hours after the first try due date) and replace your grade if you do better.
