Thoughts so far
I didn’t get any work done on my project over Christmas. Things were just too busy. However, I did finish my last piece of external work. So I am now free to concentrate fully on university… (in theory!)
I am painly aware of the lack of reading done so far. I keep trying to find relevant papers, but whenever something good turns up I can’t get the damn content! I’m so sick of only reading great sounding abstracts. The library seems to be totally lacking the resources I need. I’m not sure where my tution fees are going!
I discussed this problem with my supervisor, who suggested emailling authors directly. Hopefully this will return some useful material.
My supervisor pointed out that vectorising raster images is a hard problem and told me not to expect great results in the short time available. Lots of work has been done in the area (though I can’t get the damn papers!). I have had lots of ideas myself, but I got the impression I should just be implementing existing ideas and reporting the results… sigh.
