I am currently writing my bachelor thesis, in which I compare different algorithms for solving a specific problem to each other. Since there are a lot of available published approaches, I did a literature review to choose algorithms relevant for me to implement. In my thesis I would like to justify my choice of algorithms.
For one of these, I was convinced by a live demonstration on an exhibition-like event, where the algorithm was shown to perform reasonably well in real-time on the target platform.
My questions regarding this situation are
- Does my personal, subjective experience with this algorithm justify its implementation?
- If so, what would be the appropriate way to mention this in a thesis context?
I imagine this kind of question could also potentially be relevant to other types of theses or publications, which is why I chose the respective tags.
