Tasks Done
During this week, I scraped data from the forum provided and researched the general outline of the BERT model. Furthermore, I did comprehensive research on word embeddings and TF-IDF, deciding to try the implementation of TF-IDF on the scraped data. I struggled with the implementation of TF-IDF, but I think I am near crossing that hurdle. This week has taught me the value of self-motivation.
