You've now thought of several ideas, shared them with your classmates, and selected specific projects to work on. Submit a 2-4 page document (pdf) giving some more detail about your selected project and who (if anyone else) you've recruited to work with you. Adam will use these documents to create a Group for you on Canvas (which you will use for submitting future group work).
If a project is being done by multiple people, each person should submit a copy of the document so Adam has something to hang the score on in Canvas.
Title: short, descriptive sentence or phrase
Team: Who is working on this project (just a list of names of classmates or yourself)
Role: "AI as ___" (e.g. "AI as progression designer")
Overview: 1-4 paragraphs about the project idea. If you can identify the closest similar paper or game to your idea, that would provide valuable context.
Key technical demo(s): What's the main technical system which you will demonstrate during your final presentation? Rather than trying to deliver a finished product, you might decide to give demos of two important subsystems of a larger project that your presentation will only sketch the details of. Describe your demos in no more than a sentence or two (referring back to details in the Overview section) ("I will demonstrate a basic playable experience where the graphics are made with just programmer art but the progression manager system is using the real AI technique.")
Novelty: What’s new for the world in this project? If you can name the closest similar paper or game, you can use that as a reference point for what's new. ("My project will be using deep learning techniques for this problem where Foo and Bar 2016 [link to paper] used simpler decision tree learning techniques.")
Value: Who should be interested in this project (e.g., researchers in specific fields, practitioners in specific industry roles, etc.)? What will they find valuable? It's not expected that they will literally reuse any code from your project, but they might take your project as inspiration. ("Teachers who have no programming experience should be able to use a system like mine to build their own adaptive progressions of educational content represented as rich-text Markdown documents.")
Building blocks: What platforms, libraries, algorithms, systems, datasets or other large pre-existing will you be building on? If you need help locating a suitable building block to make your project sucessful, state that here. ("My project depends on having access to a system that can translate an english word into a sequence of phonemes for the purposes of detecting rhyming phrases. I think this kind of thing exists, but I don't know where to find it right now." <-- for this purpose, check out http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/cgi-bin/cmudict)
