# Week 0

From My first scientific paper

This course produces student research papers. It gathers research teams in a society. Each team combines a student, a consultant and an expert. The student is a project driver, who wants to plunge into scientific research activities. The consultant, a graduated student, conducts the research and helps the student. The expert, a professor, states the problem and enlightens the road to the goal.

- A student is willing to learn to formally state research problems, find adequate references, generate novel and significant ideas for problem solving.
- An advisor helps the student with technical issues, consults the student on topics of machine learning, promptly reacts to arising problems, performs evaluations and grading. Each advisor is supposed to possess sufficient publishing experience. Ideally, the advisor is writing paper on the adjacent topic. It is recommended to organize weekly reviewing process in such way that a student would input the corrections himself.
- An expert guarantees novelty and importance of the paper, suggests the problems, provides data.
