Tasks of interest

1. Investigate the impact of different CNN components on classification and regression tasks, such as the number and size of filters, depth of architecture, number of FC layers, types of activation function and pooling, etc.

2. Investigate transfer learning, fine-tuning, hyper-parameter presetting and tuning, regularization and optimisers, analysis and understanding of training/validating curves as output by different common CNN networks

3. Investigate RNN time series forecasting, word embedding comparison, semantic matching based on LSTM, Transformer, text generation, impact of different temperature values in NLP tasks

4. Investigate different auto-encoders and compare the performance of their feature representation with PCA; research different loss functions for an image-denoising task

5. Investigate the qualitative/quantitative results of generative models such as VAE and GANs

6. Implement a deep reinforcement learning network structure for CartPole game, compare performances of different agents with Q-learning, SARSA, ε-greedy and other policies
