My name is Kirill. Iâm interested in the contribution to the project âR-tree serializationâ. The search through the mailing list archive has shown there was an interest in this project among students in 2017, but as the GSoC 2017 archive site displays there was no student that participated to accomplish this project. Is it possible to work on this project as a GSoC 2018 participant? It seems like last year Adam Wulkiewicz was ready to be a mentor for the project.
Briefly about myself. I am a PhD student working on Computational Humor. More precisely Iâm working on the problem of finding/generating a humorous response given a textual input. My C++ programming experience includes a summer internship at Yandex Search and my contribution to mlpack (a machine learning library written in C++) as a GSoC 2017 participant (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/archive/2017/projects/4812231682293760/ <https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/archive/2017/projects/4812231682293760/>). For mlpack I designed and implemented cross-validation and hyper-parameter tuning modules with significant usage of C++ metaprogramming.
