Touchless Browse
Python Computer Vision OpenCV Pyaudio Pydub Whisper ChatGPT API
Touchless Browse
TouchlessBrowse is a web browser that does not require any mouse or keyboard interactions. By using voice commands, users could navigate the web by using the GPT3.5 and Whisper models. Additionally, by using OpenCV for computer vision, users could simulate mouse movements by pointing their fingers at their webcam.
Flashcard Generator
Python Pytorch BART Flask API Hugging Face Models Deep Learning NLP
Flashcard Generator
The Flashcard Generator API is a Python project that leverages advanced natural language processing (NLP) techniques and pre-trained models such as BART and Sentence-BERT to automatically generate relevant flashcards and precise answers from provided text. By utilizing NLP pipelines and ranking mechanisms, the API enables users to extract key information and efficiently create study materials for educational and knowledge retention purposes.
EEG Brain Computer Interface
Python Pytorch Pygame OpenBCI Deep Learning Mathematical Analysis Research
EEG Brain Computer Interface
Using signal processing and advanced ML techniques, we accurately detect blinks through brain signals, allowing users to play games utilizing brain signal processing. In just 5 weeks, our SVM model achieved an impressive 94.4% accuracy for blink detection. We showcased the device at CUCAI 2023, demonstrating the ability to play games without any physical touch.
Covid Trend Analysis
Python Numpy Pandas MatplotLib Data Science Research
Covid Trend Analysis
The project aimed to conduct a detailed analysis of COVID cases, exploring the correlation between geographical variations and fluctuations in the number of cases. With a strict two-month deadline, I dedicated time to self-study data science techniques and ensured careful data gathering and comprehensive analysis.
Java Swing CSV Supervised Project
Led a team of three fellow students during the design and coding phase of a minimalistic hospital application. Our aim was to improve organization within hospital settings by leveraging the Swing framework. Despite facing a strict deadline and having limited tools at our disposal, we successfully delivered a functional and user-friendly application that addressed the specific needs of hospitals.
