Ideally, make a group of 2--4 students presenting papers on a common topic (starting from basics to more advance papers).
     * Prepare your presentation and 3--5 quiz questions. At least 3 of the questions should ask for a specific answer, e.g. "write an equation for...",​ "given training set X=([dog,​N],​[cat,​Y]),​ what is the number..."​ (Not "what do you think about..."​). The first question should be quite easy to answer for those who have read the whole paper. The last question may be a tricky one. Send me the questions two weeks before your presentation. We may discuss the paper and refine the questions.     * Prepare your presentation and 3--5 quiz questions.
