Weekly Blog Post #6

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, I dedicated my efforts to improving the efficiency of the function I developed, which automates the workflow of encoding, decoding, and comparing specific variables of the CONUS404 dataset. The primary goal was to optimize the function for better performance and effectiveness. To enhance efficiency, I carefully analyzed the code and identified areas where improvements could be made. I focused on streamlining the encoding and decoding processes.

What is coming up next?
Will try categorizing factors leading to artificial information popping up and try to come up with a solution to tackle it.
