ICT2194 Avoiding Stress Everyone thinks they’ll be nervous in an exam; that’s natural There’s lots of things you can do to avoid stressing out during exams, though. Most are just common sense: - Stay healthy during your study break - Work on maintaining a positive attitude - Don’t vary your routine on the exam day - Give yourself plenty of time to get to the exam so you don’t rush - Preparing well in advance increases self-confidence on the day It doesn’t take special intelligence, memory or technical ability to do well in most exams - just a well-planned preparation during study break If you came to the lectures and labs, read the textbook and did the practicals - this really only involves a review of what you did
ICT2195 How to Prepare for the Exam To study for the exam, you need some kind of structure, or framework, for the material because: - it helps you break the work down into daily chunks to study - structured knowledge is easier to remember I recommend that you take the title slide from each lecture and put them together Spend some time going through this list, working out what you understand, and what you don’t Then break the list up into manageable study-period-length chunks, and fit these into the time you have available. Use the textbook, notes or consultations to fill in any blanks in your understanding Also do one or more of the past exam papers - at the library website:
How to Answer Questions Experienced exam-doers know a few tricks about exams: - Watch the time - plan out how much for each section - Read each question carefully - answer what it really asks - Answer a question you know first to build up confidence - Don’t waste too much time on a hard one - skip and come back - Work out if it is best to try to guess an answer or just leave it Multiple Choice Questions: (note: none in Intelligent Systems exam) - read all possible answers before committing to one - if there are two good answers, choose the most qualified - use a dark pencil to mark your answer on a separate sheet Short Answer and Essay Questions: - write clearly; the marker has to read lots of answers! - be concise and be brief - use a black or blue pen to write your answer on the exam paper
ICT2197 Sample Question Question 3 (Total: 20 marks) a)(12 marks) Sketch out a design for a multilayer perceptron which can be trained to classify 400 x 400 pixel binary images of blood vessel patterns, extracted from hi-resolution scanned retinas in order to identify people. The network is to return an 8-bit integer in the range such that value is highest when the unique pattern of blood vessels on the retina is recognised as belonging to an authorised person, and lowest otherwise. How would this network operate in recognition mode? How many neurons would you use for each layer? How would you encode and decode the data for use in a door lock for a high-security building? b)(8 marks) Assuming you have a large set of binary images pre-classified as "authorised" or "unauthorised", describe in detail how the above multilayer perceptron would function in training mode, including notes on the underlying theory.
