Make sure that your report contains all relevant information report checklist.

External libraries

  • It is not allowed to use a spam filter from another package (out of the box). But you can, of course, use that spam filter for comparison with your own work.
  • External libraries can be used (e.g. for preprocessing NLTK, Spacy, Word2Vec, FastText). The report must contain a proper description and reference to that library. In the case that the installation is not straightforward (like pip install nltk) provide a short guide or link on how to install it.

The code in filter.py will be used to assess the quality of your filter, and for the contest of all filters. The report may be in Czech or in English, shall have the form of a scientific article, it should be concise, self-contained, showing everything the author wants to show.
