    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

I should have started earlier…

Guess who is taking CIS 4115 – Artificial Intelligence with Robotics, and waited until the last day to complete last week’s assignment that was due on Sunday, this guy! If you have watched this TED talk (which I highly recommend):

then you probably have already guessed that I fell prey to procrastination and paid the price. For our assignment, we were supposed to train a neural network using data, and instructions from a site that was hosted on SourceForge. Somehow, on a Sunday, someone decided to hack SourceForge, bringing down the entire site, along with our assignment and software. Two other students in my class had also waited last minute to get started with the assignment and we all paid the price!

Fortunately, after emailing our professor to report the site was down and the software was not working, the assignment was extended to Wednesday (today) and some grateful students learned to not start assignments late!
