Hello, everyone. So today we're going to talk about finishing or project with the final report. Okay. So here as we're kind of wrapping up or of course project. So there are two key components would like to pay attention to. First one, is about summarizing and presenting the key findings of your data mining project, but also analyze the overall project process and identifying possible improvements. Okay, so we're almost done. Right? So we have to spend a busy cannot turn like working on the course project and we're now about to wrap up our cross project. Okay? So as this kind of final stage of the submission, so we're talking about two items once about the final slice. Okay, that's a presentation slides to kind of provide a big like, good overview of your project, but also the final project report. Right? Which which would provide more details about your project. Okay. So we don't need to write the slides and the report from scratch. We're going to just take the checkpoint slides, checkpoint report and then updated and expanded. Right? So we have our final report. Okay. So as you write in your final report, right? So the key part of course is about what has been accomplished in your project, right? Because you spend all the time working on concrete, like data mining projects, make sure your report like conveys that message, right? What has been accomplished? Okay. But also it's important to talk about what we have learned, right? So the report is not just reported the mechanics of okay, I have done 1,2,3 right? You really really want to kind of identify why you're doing it this way? What do you have learned along the process? Okay. It's the reasoning. Okay. All right. So specifically as I said, we need to items for some issue. Okay, so the first one is the final slide. Right, so this is the presentation slides, okay? Just to provide an overview of your project. Right, okay. So since this is just finishing, remember we started with like 5 to 10 slides for your proposal and then 10 to 15, right. For your checkpoint? Right, so now you're finishing so we have a little more information to include. Okay, so we'll talk about roughly 15 to 20 slides. Okay, so [COUGH] You don't worry about it, since you're just like you have fewer than that is okay. But we really don't want you to have too many slides because the idea that this should be a good summary. Right? Rather than providing all the details of your project. Okay. All right. So roughly 15 to 20 slides. So you want to provide a good overview of your project? Okay. So now you should have your final project title. Right. So if you have any updates of your title, fine, but make sure your final title is good. Like concise and informative. Okay. Also it's important to include in your final presentation slides of executive summary. Okay, so here typically just more like one slide. Okay, all tops two sides. But this is really more like a quick summary. Right. What are the most important like messages? Right. You want people do remember with your project. Okay. So what are the key things you have done? One of the key findings of your project? Okay. All right. And then of course you get to the specific aspect about like your problem statement, right related work proposal, work, evaluation, timeline. So that's what we have covered previously. Right. But now, of course, since you're finishing your project, you just kind of wrapping things up, updating it with some more concrete information or like refined like text of what you have accomplished. Okay. All right. But also keep in mind about the style of your slides as I said, like as you're updating adding content to your slides, always keep in mind that you want your slides to be clean. Okay? So it should be clean, concise and also really convince the key message right? It's not about adding a lot of information. They can be very complex trying to provide all the details. No, like you want to use the slides to provide a good summary, get people's attention highlighting the contributions of your work so people are interested and they can actually the radio report for more details. Okay. All right. So just keep all this in mind. Right. As you're kind of updating your checkpoint slides to make it your final project slides. Okay. All right. So then the next part, of course, this is the main document. Right. That's the final project report. Okay. So by now you should have your checkpoint report. Right? So with the data Is usually 3 to 5 pages. Okay. And now, of course you're adding more content. Right? Because you are now finishing up your project, you have more results. You have more like discussion the methods and other pieces. Right? So just expand a little bit further updated. Right? So, right now we're looking at roughly 5 to 10 pages. Okay? Again, it's not a hard image. Right? So you can go beyond or below that slide is okay. But just make sure that you're using the document to really convey the like what you have accomplished in the project. Okay. All right. So we still have the main that the same list of sections. Right? So project title and then the main body of your report. You should have the abstract introduction really to work proposal, work evaluation discussion, conclusion references. Right? So by now you should probably know these sections like very well. Right. But like let's just go through this kind of quickly. Okay, again, just like now thinking about finishing up your report and what are the key pieces to include in your report? Okay. Starting with the project title. Right. This is the time when you want to finalize your title. Like if you have like being thinking about maybe like alternative title for your project or like you say, okay, since I have kind of changed my direction will focus on the bed and maybe I should have maybe use a slightly different title or like based on my key findings. This is really something will highlight my project title. Great. Right. So, all those are potential, kind of like, ideas that you can leverage when you're trying to decide what your final project title would be. Okay. All right. Or the previous one or the original you uses a good. Right. That's great. Right. Just use it as it. But just make sure whenever you're talking about the project title, like, keep in mind that it should be consigned to be informative. Right. So later on, when you're talking about other, like, about your project right? With anybody else? People can quickly like, remember your project, right? Just based on the title. So, they kind of have a generally good idea of what your have accomplished in that project. Okay, all right. So that's project title. The next one. Abstract. So, this is the kind of the first section, like if you're using the ECM proceedings the template. Right? So after title then you can say the abstract section is brief, right? Usually set of 1 to 2 paragraphs. Right? So this is intended as a quick summary, like exactly summary style. So you basically just using this 1 to 2 paragraphs right to very briefly talk about what what is this project about? What you have done in this project? What is the problem you're tackling? Right. What are [COUGH] The key like work tasks? You have accomplished one of the key results? Right? So really you're using probably one or two sentences for each of that, right? And then that then you have your abstract. Okay. This one should be short but it provides a good summary, right? Because most of people will really a report the start with the abstract and in front after they should already have a good understanding of the gist of the project and then they can decide whether they want to read more details. Say yeah, okay, that's good already, Kind of know what it is about, okay. Also so compared to your proposal report and the checkpoint report, right. Your abstract right origin should already have a reasonably like do the summary of the problem the tasks. But when you're finishing your project right in abstract, make sure you include like a couple of sentences right. So that would be your key findings. Okay. What is the most important finding? For example, I found there is a strong correlation between A and B right. Or I have developed a model that can achieve for like certain accuracy, and then you can add in like say we found this kind of a nominee right or something. So basically just kind of highlighting what is the most important finding right of your project. Okay. All right. Then we'll dive into the introduction section right. So this actually understand it's very important because it kind of sets the stage, right. You want to really kind of convince people right in terms of I'm working on this particular problem to make it clear what is the problem you're trying to address, right. Why this is important because by now you should have a very good understanding of your problem setting right. So see whether you can refine the language, they're a bit right. Because you already have of course you should have already have your introduction section from the proposal from the checkpoint report right. But this is really when you should kind of review it carefully, right. Based on your enhance the understanding of the problem right. See whether you can like polish the text, right. Really highlights the problem itself the importance of the problem. Why like previous solutions that are not like sufficient, and why there's a contribution in your work. Okay, so here, the contribution, of course this could include the ones that are already accomplished in your project. But I still included the potential angle because this also gets to a bit more like adults, the impact or the kind of like a down the road like so you say I have done this, but this could be very useful in some kind of scenarios. Right. So think about a bit more broadly in terms of the application scenarios of your findings. Okay. All right then, the next section is the related work right. So here you would have said like a check whether you have included all the related work as etcetera. You probably started with a good set right. When you are like during your proposal stage, right. And then maybe have added a few more during your checkpoint the stage. Okay. So now, as you're kind of wrapping up your project, right. See whether there are other things you'd like to add or again adjusting the wording, right. Of how you discuss the different project and how you work right views upon the previous work. Okay. So the you probably not make kind of major edits here, but just to make sure you review it and refine it as a minute. Okay. All right then the main section. Right, proposal work. Okay. So by now, of course not, proposal work is actually what you have accomplished. Right, but we can just use the same section title for now. Okay. So make sure you go through the whole section like the satellite by like right now, your understanding is probably much deeper and like much better compared to when you started. Right so just make sure you review what you have written before right. Update to the information that's already there. So, for example, the data sets, the tools, right. You added the new data sets or you have changed the data set using or you use a new tools. All those are useful to update right. And then when you get to the main tasks, right. Some of those you already put in during your checkpoint stage, because I will say this is the thing that have accomplished, right. So that's okay, you can probably leave that as is but if you have any kind of like iterations or updates or changes, make sure you like revise those parts as well. Okay. And then of course you'll be adding the new pieces. So for example, like you talking about in your proposal or your checkpoint, is that this is something I would like to do right, okay. But now this is when you actually say I actually did it right. So then you can of course provide all the details of how you did the particular aspects of say some of the analysis, or some modeling. Some of the actual like a setup right for a particular design. So all those other important information to include right, okay. But also keep in mind that like this is the reasoning. Okay, so you don't just write about I did this like this is how I did it. This is how I did this person part. This is how I did this part, but always add in the reasoning behind it. Okay, why you're doing this? Like why you're doing it this way? Why using this method and not the other one? Right and why you are like improving existing method with this particular like change something? Right. So, always adding your reasoning behind the specific tasks you have accomplished. Okay. And of course here you may say, okay. Our original list like a couple of tests but I didn't get to it. That's okay. Right. So in this case you can probably just move that to your discussion section right. And they said the discussion section is where you will be talking about the changes or like things that you may not have finished. So it's totally fine that if you're say I didn't get to this part, which is okay. So your proposal work, we just talk about what you have accomplished, and then you can talk about like the other pieces that you didn't get to do in the latest section. Okay. And then make sure right, you really finish this evaluation section right from the proposal report. From the checkpoint report, you would have a reasonably good evaluation plan right. You may have updated during the checkpoint just to make sure that your plans, they're good and maybe already include a little bit of kind of preliminary results right. But this is the way you're like, right in your final report and make sure this evaluation section is complete. Like completely meaning that has the whole kind of set up like the metrics, the experimental setup if you're comparing with any measures right. And also the key results. Okay. So this is a part of it gets a little bit interesting, but also tricky right. Depending how your project goes. Right. Either you feel like I have like, well, I don't have many results but I just put them all in. Okay. But many times you'll see actually I probably have too many results right. Too many reasons that doesn't mean because you can easily run many different analysis. You may have kind of like various types of kind of results right. So now the question is out what the results to include, right to say. Okay. Yeah, I would like to include everything right. But think about it right. You want to include the most important findings, right. Because you may have tried other things other than they say they look similar. That's okay. So you can park just to say okay, presented your most significant results right. And then say, okay, I'll also evaluating the other setting and they have similar patterns or evaluate another setting the performance now, that's good. That's a fact right. But you want to prioritize your results okay. Which one of the most important? Which ones are like important to include others can be ignored or which ones like what they're still important. But I don't need to give other, like include other details. As to say that I kind of summarise it in a way. Okay so one is about just prioritizing, like what the results are also significant. Okay. But the other one is about the reasoning, right. Because our goal is not just to report the results that I got this accuracy, I got this particular like false positive, false negative rate right. You want to be able to interpret your results okay. So by interpreting results, you're basically saying that, okay, what does this mean right. I got this particular number right or when I compare the different investors that this is what I got. Okay. So you want to go beyond reporting your results and really kind of say what does this mean right. So that means method is always better than like the other method or this method actually has better for like a lower false positive rate right. So it's better for what kind of scenarios So you're just trying to again, kind of reason about your results and see how that then connects to the potential usage scenarios, okay? Another piece that I want to kind of add a bit is about the presentation of your results, right? There are different ways of reporting the results, right? You can just put a number in your text, right? In the non paragraph, which is of course not easy to read, right? So think about how you can visualize right, your results effectively, okay? So you can read in other papers or either like articles, you may have seen this, right? So think about, what is the most effective way of conveying your results, okay? [COUGH] If you're doing comparison, maybe a table is fine, right? But make sure table is clear, it's easy to read and also maybe you can highlight right, the best performance, right? Using say, boldface or a color, right? So that you can highlight the results that are most important. Okay, so that's more like a table format and of course you can use the figures, right? So there are various kinds of like, figures you can leverage, right? So bar charts are very useful, right, and also some kind of temporal charts is good. Two pie charts are also good and also like error bar, like bar charts was also the errors is also very useful. So there's just many different ways, right, for you to show. And if you have any kind of special temporal set up and then you can also use like, visualize it right, in the spatial temporal fashion with different colors, that kind of thing. Okay, so really think about how you like one, like which are the key results to include, okay? How you explain them or interpret the results, but also how you present the different results. So it's kind of easy and effective in terms of conveying the key message, okay? All right, so this part will take a little time, but it really kind of like to think about, right, the most effective way to do it. All right, so now you have kind of finishing more like the main sections, right? But they're, this section is also important, right? We have been talking about the discussion section, right? So this discussion at the study is really, this is how you kind of morning to the progress of project and learn throughout this whole process, right? So the other sections model talking about like, the core content of the project itself, but this is more about the process, right? So your discussion right, suddenly, usually you would include your timeline, so by now, of course you're finished. You can see I have this is how much time it took me to finish all that. And that is the current status, right? Keep in mind, right, even though we're wrapping up a project, that doesn't mean that everything has to come to a hard to stop, right? You can still say that this is where I'm at and there can be like a future like, tasks. Or like saying that I'm still working about, I may not be to finish it in time for this, which is still fine, right? So, but the main point is here that you're still kind of reviewing the progress of your project, to see what lessons are, like any challenges or like changes along the way. So this is really your way of reviewing the whole process. And that's actually important part about how you learn through this project, right? Because our focus, of course is the project itself is like exactly the concrete kind of pass, that you have accomplished, right? But another part is really about the whole like, process, right, how we carry out the demanding project, right? How things worked out, how like, things can be better, right? So, the changes, the lessons these are actually, I think it's very important to include and I hope actually really spend some time kind of reflecting upon like the whole process. And then I really think about like, how your project has been carried out and what you think it can be better, all that, okay? And now we get to the conclusion section, right? So that's okay, finally, right, we're wrapping up the report, right? And wrapping up the whole project, okay? As I said, your summary, right, should have a really good, like, overview of your project. Because this is when you're wrapping up, this is more like almost the last section, people will read about your report, right? So, let's make sure this summary is concise, it's clear, kind of highlights some of the key aspects of your project, right? And also they said, when you finish your project, right, this is the way you want to also finalize your discussion with your final like, key findings, right? So, what are the most important findings of your project, okay? You may be able to list a few, maybe in order or something, right? So this is also important, etc. You don't just a report results as is, you want to do this kind of synthesis and be able to kind of highlight, right, the key findings. So people don't need to sift through all the results you have and figure out what is most important, right? You need to do the job of identifying the most important findings of your project, okay? There's one more piece, okay, so we talked about the summary, we talk about the findings. Have we done? Okay, so, [LAUGH] Typically, right, when you talk about the report, especially data mining report, right? When you finish, we want you to really think about your future work, okay? What does it mean, why do we even need to think about the future, I'm done, right? I don't need to do more work, right, in this project. Okay, so this is really for the purpose of kind of like looking forward. Remember, we started when you're like doing your proposal, think to yourself as an architect, right? You want to be able to kind of, be this kind of this visionary person, right? Identify interesting problems and figure out how to address the particular problem. And this is how you actually continue, because by now you have the best knowledge of your project, right? Thinking back when you just started with your proposal stage, right? You say, okay, these are interesting, I think I would like to try it, right? But this is when at this point, right, you have a lot of knowledge, right? You have some deep understanding of the problem, you have done some concrete analysis, right? You probably have some very good ideas about potential improvements for the analysis that can be carried out further. Okay, so that is not a commitment to say that I will finish this, right? So, when we talk about the future work, I think about it's more like a based on your understanding, there is something new that can be done, right? So this could be something you can carry out, right, yourself if you're interested or have the time. Or this could be just a legitimate, just as somebody else can take this or a single boarding kind of like really exciting this could be. Yeah, you can actually advise somebody else to take this and do it further, right or something. But this is really where you are looking at, where you are, right, based on all the things you have learned in this project and then look forward, right? Provide us a vision, okay, of further, like, future work, okay? So, what kind of future work, right? So of course, all the projects are different, so like, you may have different ideas. So think about first, right, what do you think could be things that can be done further by giving what you have already accomplished, okay? So one example, this is a other data to incorporate, right? because I have actually heard like, many for my kind of students, right, after the finish with, like, their course projects at the end they say, yeah, I mean, I think we have found some very interesting stuff. But I think if we can incorporate some other data, right, we can actually ask some very like, more interesting questions, right? So this is about augmenting the project with more data because apparently, with more data hopefully there's more information we can leverage. Okay, think about other data. But also just say, with the existing data always a new data, right? Are there questions to explore, right? because apparently you say, I have explored this but there could be some other questions to be explored, right? So that could be also very interesting to look out for. Also just message itself, like they said, like, the techniques, the masters, those are the core parts, like, in your data. Project, right? So you may have like exploring a few different methods in your life project. Right now you have a better understanding of those, like those methods, right? So either say, I think those methods are fine, but they're missing or limited in some way. So, maybe I want to try if I had a time as a future work, right? Maybe you can try other measures. So that's the one direction. Or taking the message, you have look at you. So I may be able to improve the current method by incorporating some new information there, right. So those are just actually the potential improvements because at the satellite you not have a very good understanding of your problems setting. Have very good understanding the methods, right? So really think about how you can make it better, okay? And experiments. So because with the evaluation, when you talk about evaluation plan, your evaluation setup and all the different experiments you have conducted. You now have very good understanding, right? But there may be chances like opportunity for you to do more experiments, right? Because if I can do more experience in this kind of scenario and maybe to explore some kind of new patterns or answer new questions or further evaluated the message like I have in mind, right. Another aspect is about the scanning app because many in highs with of course project setting, right? It's a limited in scale, right? We're not necessarily talking about all the huge datasets study may face in the real world. So based on your study, based on your analysis and your findings from the course project, right? Think about how you can scale since up, right? How would your method or the results like the similar or different if you're not talking about 10 times 100 times 1000 times bigger data set of the problem, right? Because this really pushes the boundary in many directions, okay? Just really think about how the solution may still work or they need to be improved if you're dealing with a much larger scale, okay? So those are just examples in terms of future work, okay? But the key point is just that like as you're wrapping up your project, finishing up your report, just take a little bit of time to think about the future work. Like take like really kind of like take all the knowledge you have so far and really think about what can be done as future work, okay? And this is actually very good exercise, okay? All right, so just to wrap up, right? So this is really the final project report stage, right? I want to just kind of re emphasize the learning objectives right? For this stage, right? Because at this point, right, you're finishing your project, you're writing the report, right? And this is very important aspects, right? Once being able to summarize your results, right? And also presented effectively, right? So this is really about convey the key outcome of your project, okay? But also another view is about the process, like analyze the overall project process and also identifying possible improvements, okay? But that's that's how we learn from the project, right? Not just the concrete kind of knowledge you're learning in that project. But also it's about the lessons about how you carry out data mining project, okay? All right, so that is all for today. Thank you.
