# Bonus opportunities

This page lists all the bonus opportunities in the course that were announced in the lecture.

#### These are individual assignments

Unless specified otherwise, these are all individual submissions. I.e. you cannot work on these as a group (unless specified otherwise). Doing otherwise will be considered to be an academic violation.

Below is a list of various opportunities (along with the deadline and the total points associated with it):

1. Alternate name for the course. I'm not too happy with the current name of the course. Suggest an alternate name! If I pick your suggestion, then you get 5 bonus points. The deadline is Thursday, May 7, 5pm. Submit your suggestion in a PDF on Autolab.
2. Better modified Warren image. See the introductory lecture notes for more details. The best submission gets 5 bonus points (make note of the caveat thought). The deadline is Tuesday, Feb 11, 5pm. Submit your entry in a PDF with the modified image embedded in the PDF OR provide a link to the modified image on Autolab.
3. Reporting bugs on Vizier. See the Vizier page for details on how to report a bug. For every unique Vizier bug reported (the first to report a bug on Piazza will get the credit assuming it turns out to be a real bug-- I'll make that final decision), you will get 2 bonus points (you can accumulate up to 30 bonus points for bug reports in total). The deadline is Thursday, May 7, 5pm. Submit your suggestion in a PDF on Autolab-- when you identify a new bug, add it to your existing PDF submission (or create a new one if that is your first one) and (re)submit the the (updated) PDF.
4. Decreasing accuracy of linear model on COMPAS dataset. See the notes for details on what you need to do. The best submission (i.e. one with lowest accuracy) gets 5 bonus points. The deadline is Thursday, Feb 20, 5pm. Submit your entry in a PDF with the 8 input column names listed in any reasonable format on Autolab.
