Weekly Blog Post #12

Hello! My name is Ishaan Jain, a Information Technology undergrad at Manipal University Jaipur. I will be working on developing an information theoretic approach to filter out artificial information and real information in geospatial datasets for Xbitinfo during Google Summer of Code 2023.

What did I do this week?

Throughout this week, I focused on enhancing our understanding of the datasets and exploring potential artificial information. I approached this task from two angles: Firstly, I experimented with a new method of chunking variables. By modifying the way variables are chunked, I aimed to uncover any hidden patterns or anomalies that might indicate the presence of artificial information. Secondly, I leveraged the power of matplotlib to visualize the data on a map. I plotted the variables' data points onto a map, providing a spatial perspective that could help reveal geospatial trends or irregularities.

What is coming up next?

In the upcoming week, I plan to delve deeper into the findings from these experiments.
