Weekly Blog Post #13

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?

This week was dedicated to fine-tuning the function responsible for calculating true keepbits, a critical aspect of our data analysis. I focused on experimenting with different values of tolerance to achieve accurate results. Despite my efforts, I encountered some challenges. Although the function produced correct keepbits for the decoded dataset, it still struggled to yield appropriate keepbits for the original dataset in some cases.

What is coming up next?

In the upcoming week, I plan to take a deeper dive into the function's inner workings and experiment with different strategies to improve its accuracy for the original dataset.
