Explore my personal interests and arrive at clear, chosen goal for my personal project, reflect on why my goal is challenging and relevant and its connection to global context, and evaluate prior knowledge and subject-specific knowledge, experience and skills relevant and helpful in achieving my goal and completing my product.
Begin research to gain knowledge and information regarding Python, its various dependencies, the field of deep learning and related algorithms, and the functioning of and factors affecting the stock market using primary and secondary sources like books, online courses, and research papers, which would be helpful in achieving my selected goal of creating an AI stock market predictor and addressing inquiry questions, and evaluate relevance and reliability of all sources using selected consistent method.
Continue research using primary and secondary sources like books, online courses, and research papers to address inquiry questions, gain further knowledge relevant and helpful in completing my final product and achieving my selected goal. Also evaluate relevance and reliability of all sources using selected method.
Evaluate possible technologies and approaches to achieving my goal of creating an AI stock market predictor, and arrive at a justified optimal method to accomplish my goal, as well as reasons why this approach is superior to other technologies and by conducting a review of prior literature, superior to prior attempts at creating a similar AI.
First meeting with supervisor to discuss selected goal, my prior knowledge and subject-specific knowledge and research conducted to help me in achieving my goal and gain information relevant to my project, as well as analyze my chosen method of completing my product of an AI stock market predictor and reasons for its superiority.
If school timeline not sufficient, develop a more cohesive and detailed plan of action for the completion of my AI product and successful achievement of my goal, through project-specific more detailed timeline or other graphic organizers like a GANTT chart, and reflect on and evaluate the same
Based on evaluation criteria template, research process, and prior knowledge, design a detailed final product success evaluation criteria containing various standards and detailed specifications to evaluate the success of my final product of an AI stock market predictor.
Begin programming my final AI product using Python and other innovative technologies by creating the basic technology and backend framework which for collecting, processing and training on historical stock data which my AI shall utilize, and create an initial model of a functioning AI stock market predictor.
Second meeting with supervisor to discuss progress and finalize my plan of action for completion of my AI product, my success evaluation criteria for my final AI product.
Complete work and add any improvements, extensions or functions to my final product of an AI stock market predictor by using Python and other innovative technologies. Evaluate this version of my predictive model with respect to some criteria in final product success evaluation criteria using various methods and calculations and try to ensure that the AI satisfies the highest standards of the success evaluation criteria for my final AI product.
Decide on name for final product and Design and develop a working Graphical User Interface for my AI product to make my AI more user- friendly and relatively efficient and appealing.
Create and publish a website and social media pages to create awareness about and promote and market my AI and its various functions and merits to the public. Contact newspapers and other media agencies to attempt to gain additional public coverage of my final AI product.
Fourth meeting with my supervisor to discuss improved predictive model and final AI product, discuss progress in process journal, and outline tasks to be prioritized and completed to complete my product and achieve my goal in near future
Evaluate the quality and success of my final product with respect to my final product success evaluation criteria
Reflect on my development as an IB Learner throughout the course of my project.
Continue to regularly update my website and social media pages and add any improvements to continue to market and promote my AI stock market predictor to the public. Continue to contact newspapers and other media agencies to gain greater coverage for my final AI product.
Final (fifth) meeting with my supervisor to confirm whether my final AI product meets all the standards and requirements of my success evaluation criteria, gain feedback on progress in process journal and reflections on my development through my project, and ask feedback on portion of final project report completed as well as seek suggestions for final project report and school personal project exhibition. Also discuss possible long-term extensions and improvements I can make to my final product in the
Begin and complete final Project report
Prepare for and showcase personal project in school Personal Project exhibition
Conduct e-mail Interview with Dr. Tucker Balch, Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, to gain knowledge regarding using deep learning for stock market prediction, possible features to use for data collection, financial data preprocessing techniques, specific algorithms to use, potential challenges to releasing project to public, EMH, etc.
Third meeting with supervisor to discuss progress, gain feedback on possible areas of improvement for my initial model and framework of my AI, and areas to begin to work on in the future to ameliorate my AI product.
Reflect on and evaluate strengths and limitations of personal project timeline provided by my school
Complete research process using primary and secondary sources regarding possible methods to evaluate performance and success of final product and possible cri- teria to include to evaluate final product by, and evaluate all sources using selected method.
List inquiry questions and describe scope and method for research process in Investigation stage
