Requirements

For this presentation, you will be required to: 1) submit a final report paper 2) do a presentation and a demo of your software 3) answer questions from the panel (and your classmates)

For the paper, we suggest that you follow the following format:

title page table of contents abstract (executive summary)

Chapter 1 Background and Motivation 2 Problem Statement 3 Methodology (includes hw,sw, technologies used) 4 Conceptual Framework/Theoretical Framework 5 Design 6 Results 7 Analysis 8 Conclusion and Further Recommendations

Appendices A Manual B Code C Softcopy of program

Double Space, Font (Times New Roman), Size 12 With page numbers (upper right hand corner)

Slight variations to this format would be allowed with prior consultation with your advisor. However, in general, your paper should cover all the areas listed above.

I hope everyone's work is going well!

By the way, the Dean's Office is taking nominations for the Dean's Science Awards until this Friday, February 21. If you would like to apply for this award, please let us know.

What do I want?

I want a wearable computer; a computer that will allow me to access information anywhere. I want to have my notes on students. I want to have my todo list.

Demonstration for tomorrow

Notes and todo

It is a normal

A workset change to the library

"F8 p" - planner "F8 l" - library

and my computer reminds me that I need to pick up a photocopy from the Circulation photocopier.

Teaching

Here's how a typical day might go when I'm teaching. A workset change to "CS21C-A" brings up my

F9 is the teacher key.

"F9 r" brings up the roster for attendance and recitation. You can

scroll down the list of names using the arrow keys, pressing "l" for "late" and "a" for absent.

"F9 s" brings up my speaker notes for the day.

Refocus

I want to be able to sort by publication date, something that the online interface doesn't allow me to do.

Thesis notes

2002.12.11

emacspeak-pronounce may be of some use, although it's still fairly messy. Also, emacspeak-speak-character does not honor that. I may have to override emacspeak-speak-character and invoke dtk-speak myself. I suspect that is possible.

Past

Oh, blast. ASTER isn't open source, so we're just going to have to do this on our own.

Need to choose language for implementation.

Java - Jam will be able to code right away. Powerful data structures. Familiar with language. Emacs LISP - Close integration with system. Emacs LISP talking to a Java process - slow, but allows reuse.

Hmmm. Emacs LISP! Wooohooo.

Note that festival has modes. From http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/manual/festival_9.html filter A Unix shell program filter that processes the text file in some appropriate way. For example for email it might remove uninteresting headers and just output the subject, from line and the message body. If not specified, an identity filter is used. init_function This (Scheme) function will be called before any processing will be done. It allows further set up of tokenization rules and voices etc. exit_function This (Scheme) function will be called at the end of any processing allowing reseting of tokenization rules etc. analysis_mode If analysis mode is xml the file is read through the built in XML parser rxp. Alternatively if analysis mode is xxml the filter should an SGML normalising parser and the output is processed in a way suitable for it. Any other value is ignored.

no character echo unless wanted

Write LaTeX macros for her teacher to use, for example: \matrix, \covariance{}... so that it becomes even more semantic.

Nice fuzzies: Allow her to review the material along with the class, by referring to the electronic form

capital - random, small - realization
