    Default Self-directed learning

    It's nearing the last quarter of my AP Computer Science class. My professor has announced to the class that will will be doing self-directed learning for the rest of the year. He said he is going to grade it on progress, not completion. This will allow me to take on something interesting that I may not be able to complete in the month I have to do it.
    So far my interests are
    • AI (checkers, turing challenge, etc).
    • Programming languages (maybe a simple scripting language)
    • Cryptography and stenography (from ceasers cypher to rsa
    • Contributing to a FOSS project used commercially (for real world experience)


    I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do.

    Do you guys have any suggestions or ideas?

    Thank you for your time and effort,

    Mr. Beans

    Note: The only stipulation so far is that I have to use java. He's going to give us the official assignment details tomorrow.

    I might give that a try as it sounds interesting.

    Does anyone know of any open source projects which have a strong emphasis ai?

    I've also been thinking of maybe using convex optimization to solve something, as it sounds rather interesting as well.
