What I'm stuck at?

Since I'm done with the FYP1 monitoring presentation recording and the experts labelling phase is halfway through (14 days period was given to them), currently I'm not stuck at anything in particular.

How will next week be?

  • Compilation of all labelled Tweets set by Experts
  • Meeting with supervisor to discuss next course of action (ML model development)

Lessons Learnt

  1. Never assume that your work is correct on first try. Always try to get secondary external opinions to validate the correctness and quality of your work. For instance, I always try cross-check the work I've done with my partner and supervisor to ensure that I'm on the right track. It can be annoying and tedious at first especially when you have to repair them frequently, but it will be worth it in the end.

  2. No system is bug-free. After the deployment of the labelling system and its official release for the Experts to use, we encountered numerous bugs. This is to be expected since its release was rushed and we didn't have time to do proper testing. In fact, seniors have advised me to be careful of deployment bugs and never be too confident that everything will work in first try. Some bugs were minor and easily fixable while some requires in-depth analysis. Thankfully, we managed to fix most of them so far and until the labelling phase is complete, I have to be on high alert for possible errors/bugs reported by the Experts.

  3. Strive to do more than the bare minimum. What differentiates between you and your competition is on how far are you willing to exceed expectations. For the FYP1 monitoring presentation, initially my supervisor advised that we only present the summary of the literature preview in only 1 slide. However, knowing that this might not be enough especially considering that our FYP is research-based/research-heavy, I asked if it's possible for us to include more content. She gave a green-light provided that we can present within 15-minutes (which I fortunately managed to do so). Furthermore, both Faidz and I also brainstormed the possible ways in which we can make our presentation stand out, such as by including the collaboration outcomes among our stakeholders.
