Title: Sentiment Analysis on Movie Reviews

Description: The idea and data for this project is taken from Sentiment analysis is the problem of determining whether a given string contains positive or negative sentiment. For example, “A series of escapades demonstrating the adage that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander , some of which occasionally amuses but none of which amounts to much of a story” contains negative sentiment, but it is not immediately clear which parts of the sentence make it so. This competition seeks to implement machine learning algorithms that can determine the sentiment of a movie review

Project 1:

Group members: Sean Aubin, Brent Komer

Title: Convolution Neural Networks in SLAM

Description: We will try to replicate the results reported in Convolutional Neural Networks-based Place Recognition using Caffe and Google-net. As a "stretch" goal, we will try to convert the CNN to a spiking neural network (a technique created by Eric Hunsberger) for greater biological plausibility and easier integration with other cognitive systems using Nengo. This work will help Brent with starting his PHD investigating cognitive localisation systems and object manipulation.
