Progress Report - 13 Jul 2007

1. What were my goals for this week?

2. What did I accomplish this week?

3. Why are numbers 1 and 2 different?

My coding skillz were a lot rustier than I had imagined they were - I've spent too long coding Matlab and GAMS and not real languages, so jumping into C++ was a lot more difficult than I'd thought it would be. The "implement this in C++" task on Thursday turned into "let's remember how to code C++ first". Thanks to that, the implementation of k-means still isn't done, and thus I haven't moved on to other types of clustering.

4. What are my goals for next week?

5. How does this fit in my bigger picture?

Focusing on clustering will hopefully help with doing the motion representation more efficiently or at least more effectively - we'll try to cluster by vector direction and location, and compare the results with what the critical point selection shows.

6. What did I read this week?
