I am a M.Sc. student in Machine Learning, about to finish my thesis this month. My advisor wants me to meet him in person to reproduce my results under his control. It is obvious that the main reason for this action is to be confident that I didn’t manipulate the diagrams, etc.
I didn’t do any cheating and I have no problem with that. But it is a little annoying for me that my advisor doesn’t trust me. I want to know whether this is the norm in academia or is my adviser just a little skeptical of me?
I should mention that I am the lone M.Sc. student in the lab and I am nearly sure that the advisor doesn’t do that with PhD students in the lab.
