This past week I worked on preparing submission material for ICPC 2016. We submitted results from the machine learning algorithms we ran on the ABB fixation data using Microsoft Azure. Our main premise was to decide whether we could predict software developer expertise using fixation gaze data. We also wanted to decide which parameters and machine learning algorithms work best for software developer expertise prediction. Five different two class machine learning algorithms gave us a prediction accuracy of above 70%. Neural Networks and SVM performed the best.
I wrote the abstract and the first draft of the short paper we submitted for ICPC. I then worked with Dr. Sharif to refine some of the sections.
