Project 1 – Part 2 (CMPS 499/CSCE 572) Sum21 Game rules (actual name of this game is easy21) The goal of this assignment is to apply reinforcement learning methods to a simple card game that we call Sum21. Here is a list of the rules to play the game: The game is played with one dealer and one player.The game is played with an infinite deck of cards (i.e. cards are sampled with replacement). Each draw from the deck results in a value between 1 and 10 (uniformly distributed) with a color of red (probability 1/3) or black (probability 2/3). There are no face cards in this game.Ace card is always just one.At the start of the game both the player and the dealer draw one black card (fully observed). Each turn the player may either stick or hit.If a player hits then the player draws another card from the deck.If a player stands, the player receives no further cards.The values of the player’s cards are added (black cards) or subtracted (red cards).If a player’s sum exceeds 21, or becomes less than 1, then the player busts and loses the game (reward -1). If the player stands then the dealer starts taking turns. The dealer always stands on any sum of 17 or greater, and hits otherwise. If the dealer goes bust, then the player wins; otherwise, the outcome { win (reward +1), lose (reward -1), or draw (reward 0) } is the player with the largest sum. Requirement:  Please use all of the five temporal difference (TD) learning policy optimization methods introduced in the class to find optimal playing strategies for the game Sum21.  Algorithms to be implemented TD(0) TD Sarsa : N-Step Sarsa, Forward view Sarsa, Backward view Sarsa Q-learning Submission:  You should submit a single pdf or doc document containing the learned optimal strategies (five of them), plots/learning curves (it is better to put the five learning curves in one plot), and discussion.  Learning curve for the optimal strategy for the optimal Optimal stratigy table looks like this

Detailed Brief for Individual AssessmentAssignment Title: Group Report and Reflective Account The assessment will require students to work as a group to produce a research-based report plus a 500-word Reflective Account. This assessment allows you to demonstrate your ability to research a topic and also engage in cross-cultural team working. Description of the assignment: A group report on either of the following topics:Topic AA multinational corporation is planning to implement a common set of performance management (PM) practices throughout its global subsidiaries. Critically appraise the extent to which national culture can impact PM systems using specific country examples. What advice would you offer to the HRM director of the firm in relation to this plan; and why?OrTopic BIdentify and critically discuss the equal opportunity law(s) in different countries. For each country, discuss the implications for the multinational corporation. What advice would you offer to the HRM director in considering operations in each country?Individual Element (75% of your Report Mark, 1000 words). EACH student in each group must choose ONE different country. Individual contributions each constitute one section in the report. Hence 4 countries will be covered by each group report. Each country section MUST start on a separate page. Topic A: For the country you have chosen the title is: The impact of national culture on PM practices: [name of country]. Topic B: For the country you have chosen the title is: Equal opportunity legislation in [name of country]: Implications for the MNC.The author of the section must be clearly identified at the beginning of the section. Then, for this country you must: • Introduce the topic: State briefly the purpose and structure of the discussion in your own section of the report. • In conclusion, the implications for the MNC. Arguments (descriptions, explanations) should be presented as short coherent paragraphs dealing with one aspect of the argument. Do not use bullet points, notes or single sentence fragments. Individual sections must be properly referenced in the text. Any quotations must be shown in quotation marks (“ “) with referencing.Group Element (25% of the Report Mark: total 900 words): The individual discussions must be combined into a fully integrated report (see below). The group is responsible for: • The Introduction to the whole report. This should briefly state the overall purpose of the report and its structure in terms of the different countries covered. This section must be no more than 400 words. • The Conclusion must draw material from (integrate) the whole report and identify general issues covered in the countries examined, together with the potential challenges. Word length 500 words. In addition: • The report must be presented in standard report format with: i) a title page (including list of contributors), contents page with page numbers for the sections (individual reports), Introduction, numbered sections (1, 2, 3 etc.) and sub-sections (1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc.), ii) Conclusion; iii) a combined list of references (all the references used in the report must be in this combined alphabetical list at the end and not in the individual sections). Do not include any appendices. The report must be paginated. Hence you must decide the order in which the sections are going to come. • Only ONE ELECTRONIC copy should be produced per group, submitted through Canvas by the deadline set. Word length is subject to a tolerance of plus or minus 10 per cent (with cumulative 10 per cent penalties being applied for every 10 per cent outside this range). The contents page, list of references do not account towards the word totals. As normal, plagiarism will be penalised.You will work in groups of four (maximum). You will be randomly assigned to groups. Your report should draw upon published academic literature, academically approved websites (e.g. government websites) and your own experiences.Further guidance as to report writing is available on the Centre for Academic Skills Enhancement (CASE) site on StudyNet: http://www.studynet2.herts.ac.uk/ptl/common/asu.nsf/homepage?readformSubmitting your report Students are required to submit reports electronically via Canvas.

EDGE The Cardiff Met EDGE supports students in graduating with the knowledge, skills, and attributes that allow them to contribute positively and effectively to the communities in which they live and work. This module assessment provides opportunities for students to demonstrate development of the following EDGE Competencies: ETHICALCritical understanding of the importance of ethical, social, cultural and legal agendas in social media analytics.DIGITALAdvanced digital skills for the fourth industrial revolution: social big data harvesting, visualisation and business story telling.GLOBALInternational horizon and benchmarking for social media analytics corporate specialist software (Tableau) and Python programming knowledge. The assessment involves creating online Tableau visualisations on Tableau’s cloud system to be shared with the world and as a continued portfolio for students.ENTREPRENEURIALUse students’ creativity to solve business and/ or public problems and spot social media entrepreneurship opportunities. The in-depth social media skills and Tableau Public visualisations are parts of the assessment to develop entrepreneurial characteristics. Assessment Requirements / Tasks (include all guidance notes) There is ONE assessment components you must complete for this module with a total of 100% weighing: Written Research Paper (WRIT1), supported by a zip file of original evidence to construct the research paper. The chosen subject of the research topic must be around Social Media Analytics of a business of your choice, within the sector of Technology, Education or Hospitality (choose ONLY a business or comparative two businesses in one sector). The subject of the social data scrapping, results visualisations, analysis and discussion are left for the student to choose. For examples (and not limited to): You could scrap for keywords related to some educational corporate social data, e.g. Cardiff Met, MIT or any university of your choice on its corporate website and look for students’ experiences or students’ views analytics.You could scrap for keywords related to some public data on Twitter, e.g. McDonald, KFC, Starbucks or any company of your choice and look for public perceptions, market trends or brand monitoring. You could scrap customers’ reviews for products data from technological companies, e.g. IBM, Dell or HP for competitor analysis or product review comparison.You could also harvest overall sentiment towards an international brand or a global company and provide data analytics and visualisations for a business story telling.Any social media analytics topic of your own choice (within or beyond technology, education or hospitality sector), i.e. the company you worked for is recommended to understand the insights of social data from your work experiences. Please ensure you discuss your topic with your tutor in the studio/seminar as early as possible before you begin working on it. You are required to write a 4,000 word (with 10% over/under) research paper based on your practical project for this module. The paper should contain rigorous evidence and references from the primary (your own effort of social data harvesting) and/ or secondary data collection (third-party available dataset or current literatures) you undertook. Research Rationale and Motivation As part of practical research in this module and learnt from the weekly studios, you will be harvesting a suitable dataset using the relevant tools, i.e. Tableau, Python, Facebook or Twitter API or third party Tool(s) and extracting relevant information from the results. Therefore, you should start your paper with the motivation or rationale of your research, especially the business aim of your project. The design and approach of your project such as the reasons for the choice of social web harvesting, scope for strategic or tactical decision making, business values, public interest, marketing campaign, product reviews, branding and marketing, customers’ preferences or other etc. Research Tools and Methods You need to discuss your research into suitable tools and/ or APIs and the justification for your choice. Based on this, you should then document the design of your project and show clearly how your research project communicates with any third-party service or API. Results and Visualisations You should discuss the results with necessary business or social implications and relate that back to the motivation or rationale of your social media project. Visualisation is very important, so the report should also contain suitable visualisations for your business storytelling out of the social data you collected. Limitations and Implications In addition, project limitations and recommendations are desirable. Conclusion and Appendices Finally, draw a conclusion with key results to nicely conclude your web harvesting research. You are encouraged to compare various technical tools and techniques to demonstrate the social media analytics skills you have learnt. You can implement your social web harvesting research project using any suitable language / technology / third-party tools you see fit. You can hard-code queries or you can provide a suitable front-end where users can enter search keywords. In addition, you can show the results in any suitable form, e.g. tables, various forms of innovative graphs or information overlaid on a map. The final visualisation needs to be published on Tableau Public and include the link and evidences in the paper as Appendixes.

Mitigating Circumstances If you have experienced changes or events which have adversely affected your academic performance on the assessment, you may be eligible for Mitigating Circumstances (MCs). You should contact your Module Leader, Personal Tutor or Year Tutor in the first instance. An application for MCs, along with appropriate supporting evidence, can be submitted via the following link to the MCs Dashboard Applications for MCs should ideally be submitted as soon as possible after circumstances occur & at the time of the assessment. Applications must be submitted before the relevant Examination Board. Further information on the Mitigating Circumstances procedure is available in the Academic Handbook (Volume 1, Section 5) Unfair Practice Cardiff Metropolitan University takes issues of unfair practice extremely seriously. The University has distinct procedures and penalties for dealing with unfair practice in examination or non-examination conditions. These are explained in full in the University’s Unfair Practice Procedure (Academic Handbook: Vol 1, Section 8) Types of Unfair Practice, include: Plagiarism, which can be defined as using without acknowledgement another person’s words or ideas and submitting them for assessment as though it were one’s own work, for instance by copying, translating from one language to another or unacknowledged paraphrasing. Further examples include: Use of any quotation(s) from the published or unpublished work of other persons, whether published in textbooks, articles, the Web, or in any other format, which quotations have not been clearly identified as such by being placed in quotation marks and acknowledged.Use of another person’s words or ideas that have been slightly changed or paraphrased to make it look different from the original.Summarising another person’s ideas, judgments, diagrams, figures, or computer programmes without reference to that person in the text and the source in a bibliography or reference list.Use of services of essay banks and/or any other agencies.Use of unacknowledged material downloaded from the Internet.Re-use of one’s own material except as authorised by the department. Collusion, which can be defined as when work that that has been undertaken with others is submitted and passed off as solely the work of one person. An example of this would be where several students work together on an assessment and individually submit work which contains sections which are the same. Assessments briefs will clearly identify where joint preparation and joint submission is specifically permitted, in all other cases it is not. Fabrication of data, making false claims to have carried out experiments, observations, interviews or other forms of data collection and analysis, or acting dishonestly in any other way.

Case study 2 (CS2) Anti-Bias Curriculum in Early Care and Education Anti-bias is the practice of inclusion, which accepts that all people are of value and should be respected. Following an anti-bias curriculum in early care and education settings has the outcome of creating secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships that value diversity among people. At an early age, children have begun to construct a sense of self, of belonging, gender and racial identity. If children are exposed to stereotyping, prejudices and discriminatory practices they will absorb these and, unless guided otherwise, reflect and practice them in their world. The goals of an anti-bias curriculum include: developing children’s identities and self esteemhelping children feel comfortable with differencecreating awareness of bias and stereotypesproviding children with the tools to respond appropriately to bias Anti-bias is an active approach to the identification and challenging of prejudicial and discriminatory practices in relationships between people. Children are not born with prejudice, they develop it. The early care and education setting in collaboration with the home environment create a learning atmosphere in which children experience: valuing each other’s knowledge and contributionstrusting each othercommunicating freely and respectfully with each othersharing insights and perspectivesengaging in shared decision making Where does bias come from? Bias can occur when individuals have: incorrect or not enough informationemotional stresstime pressuresdifficulty adapting to a new ‘societal’ culturelack of established support systemslanguage and/or communication barriers Indicators of bias include: refusal to co-operatediscouraging others’ involvementacting on assumptions about people and groups Some guiding assumptions about working with children in an anti-bias environment: Even very young children notice differences and begin to discriminate based upon them. It is okay for children to notice differences. The problem is the way society sees some differences as positive and others as negative; children absorb these attitudes and act according to them. We do not all experience bias in the same way. An anti-bias approach is important for everyone. Adults are not always aware of their biases and potentially may model bias unintentionally. Understanding bias and inequality is a long-term process of life-long exploring and challenging. It is important that we create environments for all in which we encourage participation and where it is ok to disagree. It is important to integrate anti-bias in all parts of the early care and education environment. Ideas for implementing anti-bias practice: Talk about your own experiences. Begin with yourself, tell a story of when you were discriminated against, how you felt, how you resolved the issue, and invite the children to make comments. You can guide them to imagine how they would have felt in such a situation, how they would have responded, what they would have expected the outcome to be.Help put rejection in perspective. Remind your child of times he or she has been angry with parents, friends, or siblings — how were these situations resolved?Shed some light on social dynamics. Acknowledge that people are often judged by the way they Look, act, or dress. Explore why that is so, what impact it may have on an individual’s feelings and behaviour and identify strategies that support the development of genuine relationships. Find examples that children can relate to. Many books, TV shows, and movies portray outsiders triumphing in the face of rejection and send strong messages about the importance of being true to your own nature and of the value of being authentic, even in the face of difficult social situations. Foster friendships in a variety of settings. Introduce the children in your care and education setting to any activity that gives them an opportunity to create another social group and learn new skills.Model inclusive behaviour. Have anti bias practices as standard practice in your workplace; expose the children to situations in which they can observe the educator practicing anti bias Click or tap here to enter text.

Case study/Scenario 3 (CS3)All services will have concerns and issues about cultural differences and social diversity. Apple Blossom Early Learning Centre, one of the services in your Westbury City Council Family and Community Services Directory, has had to deal with a problem recently.There are two Indonesian children at Apple Blossom Early Learning Centre. Made, who has just turned two, is in the Lorikeets Room (18 months to 2.5 years) with Barbara and Carrie, and Jamil who is a little older , is with Amanda and Barbara, in the Corella Room.Their mothers have become friends over the past few months and now often stand and talk to each other, socialise on weekends and evenings and their husbands have also become friends. Until they met each other one morning as they dropped off their boys they both had been very quiet, often did not speak to anyone, said goodbye to their children and left. The staff had tried to engage them and share information with them but had not had much of success. Kadija, Jamil’s mother and Zinnan, Made’s mother, are Muslim’s and both wear their traditional head scarf. They also wear full length clothes and cover their arms. This is their normal day wear regardless of the temperature. Amanda is pleased that they have made friends as they had both looked lonely and lost at times. They are very animated when they meet and speak to each other in their own language. They often laugh, and although they are quietly spoken, seem to enjoy each other’s company. Kadija, whose English, is quite good, will often read the notes on the door or that are in the children’s personal boxes, to Zinnan. When Made had had a really bad day and Barbara had tried to explain to Zinnan that he had got upset because some of the children had teased him. Zinnan, who was quite upset, went to find Kadija and they left together. From Barbara’s observation it seemed that Kadija was comforting Zinnan. Barbara was disappointed that she hadn’t been able to communicate better to Zinnan, but as she said later to Amanda, “If she won’t learn English and spend the time talking to me what can I do?This week while in the staff room, Amanda overheard Barbara and another staff member talking, “She just jabbers away in her own language to Jamil’s mother”. “They both don’t seem to be making any attempt to adapt to Australian ways; they even wear those long clothes and scarfs in all of this heat. Daft if you ask me.” “Made is a nice child, but he’s so timid and he’s very picky with his food. He doesn’t like this and doesn’t like that”.Amanda is concerned as these comments don’t reflect the philosophy and policies of the service and she feels very uncomfortable with what she heard. Amanda goes off to find Halida (the supervisor of the centre) to talk to her, discuss her thoughts, and see if she can find some ways of addressing this at a staff development level.(a) What would you do if you were Amanda?Click or tap here to enter text.(b) What are the issues that she will probably raise with Halida?Click or tap here to enter text.(c) What aspects of prejudice, stereotyping and racism are developing at the service?Click or tap here to enter text.Why it is important these issues are addressed as soon as possible?Click or tap here to enter text.(e) List some of the possible strategies she should use to address these issues.

1 August 20XX Subject: Staff Performance Hi Anne (HR Manager), I have been receiving a number of customer complaints regarding one of our reception staff. Many of the complaints have been around his lack of attention and helpfulness to customer. We are running a 5 star hotel and our clients feel like they have come to a 2 star hotel. I have approached him on a number of occasions and discussed the feedback and provided him with support and advise to improve his customer service however I am yet to see any improvement. I have the Customer Satisfaction surveys received last month for your review. I would appreciate your support and assistance with resolving this issue, as I am concerned it is also starting to affect the other staff member on reception. Look forward to hearing from you soon Kind regards Jenny SmithReception Team Leader
