This week was spent focusing on making a the soft deadline for a complete draft. I finalized the background sections of both Spaun and DeepMind's AI so that I can concentrate on the sections about comparisons. I focused primarily on the factors of Spaun and DeepMind's AI and how they contributed to its performance. In the complete draft, I structured my essay after the following:
2. Background Information on Spaun
2. Background Information on DeepMind's AI
Ultimately, most of my issues came from comparing the two topics. As I understood more of each, it became a bit more difficult to figure out which aspects to compare. It seemed that both topics became more different the more I learned about them. However, I tried to resolve this issue by focusing on the factors that limited Spaun and hindered its performance. Then, I focused on how DeepMind's AI outperforms the brain and used that as a foil in order to break down more of what caused Spaun's sub-par performance. I also spent most of the time practicing for my speech for the presentations. Since the poster boards were made before the complete draft was complete, some discrepancies existed between my paper and my poster board. However, I did my best to resolve those issues by clarifying it in the speech that I prepared.
In terms of deadline, I hope to get the feedback for my paper and make changes in the following week. I am sure Justin has comments regarding the comparisons due to the fact that they are not easily comparable. I look forward to making the changes needed in order to improve my paper.
