Questions and Comments

  • 2020-05-07Hi, Adway! I'm a fellow student participating in the Sigma Xi Showcase. You seem to have really thought through your project thoroughly: you were well-spoken in your video, your references are high quality, you considered possible problems and worked to resolve them, and you based your hypothesis on previous research. You have a great project! - Kylee Dawn

  • 2020-05-07Hi Adway, Excellent presentation and video. I really appreciate how you explained the process of building the ensemble learning framework you implemented in your research. If you were to do this project over again, would you change your decision to organize data into nature vs nurture classifications? Did you consider other additional or alternative ways of classification? Great job!
    Reply: Thank you so much for taking a look at my project! In studies similar to mine, lots of different classification schemes are used. I considered a variety of others, but ultimately, I wanted to go back to one of the fundamental questions of psychology—one that has been debated since the time of Plato and Aristotle. If I were to do this project over, I would try to organize the factors not only into nature and nurture, but also a few other classification schemes.
