Description/Abstract

Individual project is a major component of MSc degrees in the UK in terms of allocated marks and overall weight. An MSc project typically lasts for up to 14-16 weeks, which makes it challenging to carry out elaborate research works. In this paper we highlight our experience in setting up one such project, which addresses the design and implementation of a bio-inspired adaptive learning system using cerebellar model articulation controller (CMAC) principles. To systematically execute the project, initially a guided and comprehensive literature survey was carried out to analyze in detail the CMAC design tradeoffs. Underpinning this analysis an adaptive design methodology was developed, leading to the implementation on a field programmble gate array (FPGA). The implementation was then validated using a real-time audio compression application. The validations demonstrated the advantages of adaptive learning systems in terms of reduced energy consumption with improved throughput and convergence. Moreover, it underlined the importance of a good plan and systematic delivery for a successful short-term research project.
