Here’s a useful link for research students. This gives lots of background information for the whole post-grad study process. It’s specifically aimed at AI students, but is general enough to be worthwhile for anyone. The research journal suggested here is the same idea as I have for this weblog.
And something on the side, I have the most beautiful tri-colour nasturtium smiling at me from my desk. Its mostly yellow, with an orange stain down the centre of each petal, and a deep red blush near the centre on the top two petals. I don’t have a favourite colour, but this mixture is certainly high up on my list of favourites.
BibTeX may be worth investigating. An online bibliography? Will keep you informed.
