A Brave New Start — William

Over last semester, I wrote a series of blogs focusing on artificial intelligence and machine learning using artificial intelligence, especially that of image classifications. My independent project aimed to create and improve a convolutional neural network that identifies different categories of grocery. Through the semester, I gained considerable experiences working with Tensorflow, the most popular programming framework for machine learning. I also became proficient in creating and improving the neural network, raising its accuracy over 80 percent. Continue reading

THE FIRST FILM STUDY AND MY PLAN-Tony

Ever since it was invented, film has always been a major source of influence that shapes the public’s image towards others and themselves. In particular, the gender norm in our society was, to a large extent, shaped by the popular films that defined each era. This is why I decided to pursue the study of this topic —– the gender dynamic in classic films and its influence on our society.

This period is not arbitrarily defined, but is marked by the two crisis which form its boundaries. Continue reading

Social Behavior and Aggression of Girls Introduction – Liv

             The way in which people interact always fascinated me. Of course, during my early adolescence, I was just as confused as the next girl as to why my friends acted so mean at school. Beginning as early as second grade, our class was populated with cliques of girls who paraded around at recess and yelled at others for sitting on their slide, or wearing the same sparkly shirt as they did. Even at such a young age, the issue of girls fighting for power and social status was prevalent, and I wanted to know exactly why.  Continue reading

Mass Media and Foreign Policy – Ethan

Mass media and American foreign policy…. how does one even begin to narrow the focus of a project that considers a relationship of this magnitude?

Well, let’s start with what’s certain. I know that I want to write a paper. I also know that my independent is happening under the auspices of the history department, so a significant part of my paper would probably need to be devoted to combing through the history of America’s relationship with . . . which country? Never mind that, which region?
