This a problem set for you to work through [1]

This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:

  1. to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
  2. to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices


What is this problem set trying to do

This is a computer vision problem set. In this example we are learning computer vision, API's.

The Problem

Please designProduce a plan, simulation or model. and build a system which allows a user to upload an image. The program should process the image using google image recognition API and return a guess about what the picture is.

Unit Tests

  • User Input: The user uploads a picture of a woman sitting in a field under a tree.
  • Expected output: the computer program outputs "high probability this is a woman sitting under a tree in a field


Hacker edition

There is no hacker version of this problem set.


How you will be assessed

Your solution will be graded using the following axis:


Scope

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. does your code implement the features required by our specification?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is there evidence of effort?

Correctness

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. did your code meet specifications?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. did your code meet unit tests?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code free of bugs?

DesignProduce a plan, simulation or model.

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code written well (i.e. clearly, efficiently, elegantly, and/or logically)?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code eliminating repetition?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code using functions appropriately?

Style

  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code readable?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. is your code commented?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. are your variables well named?
  • To what extentConsider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument. do you adhere to style guide?
