1  About the Course

Q:
What format will the in class exams be? More of a short answer type, more programming, or both? Or is it possible that has yet to be determined? Will the exams be designed to be completed within the class time or will the exams require students to possible stay late?
A:
Exams will be 50 minutes (in class). No programming, only conceptual questions.

2  About Me

Q:
What is your favorite breakfast pastry? (Bagel, doughnut, croissant, scone, etc)
A:
Oooh, that's a tough one. I eat bagels at least a couple of times a week, but I'm not sure that makes them my favorite (only the one I think my diet can sustain). Add lox and you might have a favorite, though!
Q:
How did you spend your time during your academic leave? What projects did you work on?
A:
I was at UMass Amherst doing vision research, submitted a journal article on scene text recognition (with Zach and Dugan) and continued to develop my project on making historical map images searchable for scholars (or the curious).
Q:
How did you get into the field of Computer Science?
A:
I'm not sure there's a complete answer to that. Mostly I'm a guy who likes constructive, logical thinking, solving problems, and building things. There's a certain amount of creativity to the whole thing to, that helps keep me balanced.
