These are some of the independent programming projects I'm currently working on or that I've completed. You can also find many of my projects on my GitHub page.
Suture Score is an application to provide instant, objective feedback on suturing technique to surgical trainees. To prepare for assessments and surgery, students need as much practice as possible. Using innovative image recognition techniques, Suture Score aims to enhance trainees' practice to improve their suturing skills. Suture Score was created at the NHS-sponsored TELHack hackathon, where it won first place.
VROOM: Vacuum Robot Overcoming Obstacles and Messes
VROOM was a final project for an artificial intelligence course. It is a simulated robotic vacuum cleaner designed to explore its environment, classify the types of obstacles it encounters, and plan an efficient path to clean dirt in expected locations. It makes use of many classical AI algorithms such as A* search and naive Bayes classification.
Blurber is a web app to create fake book blurbs. Using the titles and descriptions of the top 300 books in every category on Amazon, this app will generate randomly generate new book blurbs with the power of Markov chains.
Blurber was created with Mustafa Camurcu and Shreyas Mahimkar at HackBeanpot 2015, where it was a finalist.
