2021 - Week 4

I often wondered why machine learning projects took so long, and I think I have the answer: the label generation. Trying to fit a gaussian curve to the data and then finding differences is tricky! I spent the whole week trying to figure it out, mostly because it took a lot of math and computation, but I think I have it down now. I’m still working on determining a good window size for the data, but that isn’t too much of a problem. Eclipsing binaries are unique and their eclipses come in many different sizes, shapes, and frequencies! There might not be a good one-size-fits-all and I’ll just have to accept that.
