Final Report (please read this carefully!)
- The final report must include the following seven sections:
- A short introduction of the domain being investigated.
- A description of the problem or phenomenon studied.
- An explanation of the methods and algorithms employed.
- A description of your programmed system.
- An account of the results obtained.
- Some interesting conclusions.
- Bibliographic references.
- Language: Hebrew or English.
- Length: 10-20 pages.
- Don't include the code.
- Don't send the report by e-mail: hand in a hard copy.
