Requirements
To pass the practicals, you need to obtain at least 80 points, excluding the bonus points. Note that up to 40 points above 80 (including the bonus points) will be transfered to the exam. In total, assignments for at least 120 points (not including the bonus points) will be available.
Environment
The tasks are evaluated automatically using the ReCodEx Code Examiner.
The evaluation is performed using Python 3.9, scikitlearn 1.0, numpy 1.19.5, scipy 1.7.1, pandas 1.3.3 and matplotlib 3.4.3. You should install the exact version of these packages yourselves.
Teamwork
Solving assignments in teams (of size at most 3) is encouraged, but everyone has to participate (it is forbidden not to work on an assignment and then submit a solution created by other team members). All members of the team must submit in ReCodEx individually, but can have exactly the same sources/models/results. Each such solution must explicitly list all members of the team to allow plagiarism detection using this template.
No Cheating
Cheating is strictly prohibited and any student found cheating will be punished. The punishment can involve failing the whole course, or, in grave cases, being expelled from the faculty. While discussing assignments with any classmate is fine, each team must complete the assignments themselves, without using code they did not write (unless explicitly allowed). Of course, inside a team you are expected to share code and submit identical solutions.

rental_competition
Deadline: Oct 25, 23:59 3 points+5 bonus
This assignment is a competition task. Your goal is to perform linear regression on the data from a rental shop. The train set contains 1000 instances, each instance consists of 12 features, both integral and real.
The rental_competition.py template shows how to load the training data, downloading it if needed. Furthermore, it shows how to save a trained estimator and how to load it during prediction.
The performance of your system is measured using root mean squared error and your goal is to achieve RMSE less than 110. Note that you can use any number of generalized linear models with any regularization to solve this assignment (but no decision trees, MLPs, …).
perceptron
Deadline: Nov 01, 23:59 2 points
Starting with the perceptron.py template, implement the perceptron algorithm.
Note that your results may be slightly different (because of varying floating point arithmetic on your CPU).

grid_search
Deadline: Nov 01, 23:59 2 points
Starting with grid_search.py
template, perform a hyperparameter grid search, evaluating hyperparameter performance
using a stratified kfold crossvalidation, and finally evaluate a model
trained with best hyperparameters on all training data. The easiest way is
to utilize sklearn.model_selection.GridSearchCV
.
Note that your results may be slightly different (because of varying floating point arithmetic on your CPU).

thyroid_competition
Deadline: Nov 01, 23:59 4 points+5 bonus
This assignment is a competition task. Your goal is to perform binary classification – given medical data with 15 binary and 6 realvalued attributes, predict whether thyroid is functioning normally or not. The train set and test set consist of ~3.5k instances.
The thyroid_competition.py template shows how to load training data, downloading it if needed. Furthermore, it shows how to save a trained estimator and how to load it during prediction.
The performance of your system is measured using accuracy of correctly predicted examples and your goal is to achieve at least 96% accuracy. Note that you can use any number of generalized linear models with any regularization to solve this assignment (but no decision trees, MLPs, …).

mnist_competition
Deadline: Nov 8, 23:59 4 points+6 bonus
This assignment is a competition task. Your goal is to perform 10class classification on the wellknown MNIST dataset. The train set contains 60k images, each consisting of $28×28$ pixels with values in $\{0, 1, …, 255\}$. Evaluation is performed on 10k test images. You can find a simple online demo of a trained classifier here.
The mnist_competition.py template shows how to load training data, downloading it if needed. Furthermore, it shows how to save a trained estimator and how to load it during prediction.
The performance of your system is measured using accuracy of correctly predicted examples and your goal is to achieve at least 97% accuracy. Note that you can use any sklearn algorithm to solve this exercise (and of course anything you implement yourself).
k_nearest_neighbors
Deadline: Nov 15, 23:59 4 points
Starting with the k_nearest_neighbors.py,
implement knearest neighbors algoritm for classifying MNIST, without using the
sklearn.neighbors
module in any way.
Note that your results may be slightly different (because of varying floating point arithmetic on your CPU).

diacritization
Deadline: Nov 15, 23:59 6 points+6 bonus
The goal of the diacritization
competition is to learn to add diacritics to
the given Czech text. We will use a small collection of
fiction books,
which is available under CC BYNCSA license.
Note that these texts are the only allowed training data, you cannot use any
other Czech texts to train or evaluate your model. At test time, you will be
given a text without diacritics and you should return it including diacritical
marks – to be explicit, we only consider diacritized letters áčďéěíňóřšťúůýž
and their uppercase variants.
The diacritization.py template shows how to load the training data, downloading it if needed.
Each sentence in the data is stored on a single line, with exactly one space character separating input words. The performance of your system is measured using word accuracy (the percentage of words you diacritized correctly, as computed by the diacritization_eval.py script) and your goal is to achieve at least 86.5%. You can use any sklearn algorithm with the exception of decision trees to solve this assignment (so no random forests, extra trees, gradient boosting, AdaBoost with decision trees, …).
kernel_linear_regression
Deadline: Nov 22 Dec 06, 23:59
5 points
Starting with the kernel_linear_regression.py, implement kernel linear regression training using SGD on the dual formulation. You should support polynomial and Gaussian kernels and also L2 regularization.
Note that your results may be slightly different (because of varying floating point arithmetic on your CPU).

diacritization_dictionary
Deadline: Nov 22, 23:59 4 points+5 bonus
The diacritization_dictionary
is an extension of the diacritization
competition.
In addition to the original training data,
in this task you can also use a dictionary providing all known diacritized
variants
of word forms present in the training and testing data, available again under
CC BYNCSA license.
The dictionary is not guaranteed to contain all words from the training and
testing data, but if it contains a word, you can rely on all valid Czech
diacritization variants being present.
The rules of the competition is the same as of the diacritization
competition,
except that
 you can utilize the dictionary, both during training and inference;
 in order to pass, you need to achieve at least 95% word accuracy.
The diacritization_dictionary.py
module provides a Dictionary
class, which loads the dictionary
(downloading it if necessary), exposing it in Dictionary.variants
field
as a mapping from undiacritized word form to a list of known diacritized
variants.
Note that the fictiondictionary.txt
is available during ReCodEx evaluation.

nli_competition
Deadline: Jan 03, 23:59 5 points+5 bonus
In this competition task you will be solving the Native Language Identification. In that task, you get an English essay writen by a nonnative individual and your goal is to identify their native language.
We will be using NLI Shared Task 2013 data, which contains documents in 11 languages. For each language, the train and test sets contain 1000 and 100 documents, respectively. Particularly interesting is the fact that humans are quite bad in this task (in a simplified settings, human professionals achieve 4050% accuracy), while machine learning models can achieve high performance.
Because the data is not publicly available, you can download it only through ReCodEx. Please do not distribute it. The template nli_competition.py can the be used to load the dataset as usual.

In the competitions, your goal is to train a model and then predict target values on the test set available only in ReCodEx.
Submitting to ReCodEx
When submitting a competition solution to ReCodEx, you should submit a trained model and a Python source capable of running it.
Furthermore, please also include the Python source and hyperparameters
you used to train the submitted model. But be careful that there still must be
exactly one Python source with a line starting with def main(
.
Do not forget about the maximum allowed model size and time and memory limits.
Competition Evaluation

Before the deadline, ReCodEx prints the exact achieved score, but only if it is worse than the baseline.
If you surpass the baseline, the assignment is marked as solved in ReCodEx and you immediately get regular points for the assignment. However, ReCodEx does not print the reached score.

After the competition deadline, the latest submission of every user surpassing the required baseline participates in a competition. Additional bonus points are then awarded according to the ordering of the performance of the participating submissions.

After the competition results announcement, ReCodEx starts to show the exact performance for all the already submitted solutions and also for the solutions submitted later.
What Is Allowed
 You can use only the given annotated data, either for training or evaluation.
 You can use any unannotated or manually created data for training or evaluation.
 The test set annotations must be the result of your system (so you cannot manually correct them; but your system can contain other parts than just trained models, like handwritten rules).
 Do not use test set annotations in any way, if you somehow get access to them.
 Unless stated otherwise, you can use any algorithm present in
numpy
orscipy
, anything you implement yourself, and any pre/postprocessing or ensembling methods insklearn
. Do not use deep network frameworks like TensorFlow or PyTorch.
Install

Installing to central user packages repository
You can install all required packages to central user packages repository using
pip3 install user scikitlearn==1.0 numpy==1.19.5 scipy==1.7.1 pandas==1.3.3 matplotlib==3.4.3
. 
Installing to a virtual environment
Python supports virtual environments, which are directories containing independent sets of installed packages. You can create a virtual environment by running
python3 m venv VENV_DIR
followed byVENV_DIR/bin/pip3 install scikitlearn==1.0 numpy==1.19.5 scipy==1.7.1 pandas==1.3.3 matplotlib==3.4.3
.
Git

Is it possible to keep the solutions in a Git repository?
Definitely. Keeping the solutions in a branch of your repository, where you merge them with the course repository, is probably a good idea. However, please keep the cloned repository with your solutions private.

On GitHub, do not create a public fork with your solutions
If you keep your solutions in a GitHub repository, please do not create a clone of the repository by using the Fork button – this way, the cloned repository would be public.
Of course, if you just want to create a pull request, GitHub requires a public fork and that is fine – just do not store your solutions in it.

How to clone the course repository?
To clone the course repository, run
git clone https://github.com/ufal/npfl129
This creates the repository in the
npfl129
subdirectory; if you want a different name, add it as a last parameter.To update the repository, run
git pull
inside the repository directory. 
How to keep the course repository as a branch in your repository?
If you want to store the course repository just in a local branch of your existing repository, you can run the following command while in it:
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ufal/npfl129 git fetch upstream git checkout t upstream/master
This creates a branch
master
; if you want a different name, addb BRANCH_NAME
to the last command.In both cases, you can update your checkout by running
git pull
while in it. 
How to merge the course repository with your modifications?
If you want to store your solutions in a branch merged with the course repository, you should start by
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ufal/npfl129 git pull upstream master
which creates a branch
master
; if you want a different name, change the last argument tomaster:BRANCH_NAME
.You can then commit to this branch and push it to your repository.
To merge the current course repository with your branch, run
git merge upstream master
while in your branch. Of course, it might be necessary to resolve conflicts if both you and I modified the same place in the templates.
ReCodEx

What files can be submitted to ReCodEx?
You can submit multiple files of any type to ReCodEx. There is a limit of 20 files per submission, with a total size of 20MB.

What file does ReCodEx execute and what arguments does it use?
Exactly one file with
py
suffix must contain a line starting withdef main(
. Such a file is imported by ReCodEx and themain
method is executed (during the import,__name__ == "__recodex__"
).The file must also export an argument parser called
parser
. ReCodEx uses its arguments and default values, but it overwrites some of the arguments depending on the test being executed – the template should always indicate which arguments are set by ReCodEx and which are left intact. 
What are the time and memory limits?
The memory limit during evaluation is 1.5GB. The time limit varies, but it should be at least 10 seconds and at least twice the running time of my solution. For competition assignments, the time limit is 5 minutes.
Requirements
To pass the practicals, you need to obtain at least 80 points, excluding the bonus points. Note that up to 40 points above 80 (including the bonus points) will be transfered to the exam. In total, assignments for at least 120 points (not including the bonus points) will be available.
To pass the exam, you need to obtain at least 60, 75, or 90 points out of 100point exam to receive a grade 3, 2, or 1, respectively. The exam consists of 100pointworth questions from the list below (the questions are randomly generated, but in such a way that there is at least one question from every but the first lecture). In addition, you can get at most 40 surplus points from the practicals and at most 10 points for community work (i.e., fixing slides or reporting issues) – but only the points you already have at the time of the exam count. You can take the exam without passing the practicals first.
