Projects are a very large component of 454. In the past we've had students build a complete crawler from scratch. One year teams built a specialized webcam-crawler & search engine. Last year, the focus was again on search with an emphasis on ranking.

This time we offer a choice. Students who have a strong desire to do a self-defined project should see the instructor ASAP, but the default project will be to build a novel shopping-related search engine, specifically one that summarizes product reviews. Since this is a complex undertaking, we'll break it into pieces.
