Weekly Blog Post #3

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 Xbitnfo during Google Summer of Code 2023.

What did I do this week?

During this week, I successfully completed writing tests for PR#188 and focused on enhancing the functionality of the code by trying to add both keepbits and inflevels to the add_bitinfo labels function. Furthermore, I dedicated time in understanding few possibilties to identify artificial information in datasets. Started working on CONUS dataset to try to identify the how the artificial information is getting induced.
Overall, this week was marked by the completion of tests for PR#188, as well as the exploration of methods to detect artificial information in datasets. By actively working on the CONUS dataset, I am making progress towards uncovering the influences and effects of artificial information.

What is coming up next?
In the upcoming week, my plan is to observe and understand the development of artificial information using CONUS dataset and try to come up with some ideas on how to tackle this issue of artificial information popping up in bitinformation analysis.
