They ended up going quite well. One paper ended up having to have an independent review because of student complaints (it was very poorly done.. bad lecturers and mistakes in the test and exam - the exact same mistake ended up in both after they said they would more carefully check the exam). No one was removed from teaching though which I think shows a complete failure in the system.

Anyway... received some very good grades which I am definitely not on track to repeat this semester.

Cauliflower or kumara (sweet potato). :)

I'm doing a summer internship/ project at a bank for a few months but otherwise I am a full time student (studying a Master's in Applied Data Science). :)

:lol: no. I've only watched a handful of scary movies. Probably The Conjuring 2. That was quite cool. :)

Oh cool ! So you have expertise in Financial nitty-gritties as well as you are into the world of Algorithms, and probably neural networks and other Data Science stuff.
You must have a few papers which are highly theoretical and descriptive. And are there any Analytics tool too which you are working with?

I get a very good mix of applied and theoretical with my current course. We don't, surprisingly, really cover neural networks because it's expected that we can pick up any algorithm ourselves after completing the course.. There are a bunch of algorithms and neural networks are one and they're usually good in specific situations (I guess that's like everything). For an assignment, I chose to use a NN for a classification problem. My other two algorithms performed better. :(

I've used R and PySpark/Python in this course. But I've previously used SAS, SQL and a bunch of other languages for Computer Science/ Statistics.
