Student Projects

Academic year: 2020/2021

My interests are in data analytics, computer vision (images or video data) or machine learning applications in general. I'm also part of the Smart Stadium/Smart Cities initiative with Croke Park, Arizona State University, Intel, Microsoft and DCU (video). Projects that may have Smart Cities or Internet of Things applications are very welcome.

MCM (CA685 - Data Analytics)
Please consider the following questions before approaching me to discuss a project.

  1. What is your topic, problem or domain?
  2. What datasets might you use? (how big?, is it labelled?, is it ethical?)
  3. How will you know if you have solved or contributed to the problem? (or how will you measure the performance of your methods? how will you test your implementation?)

Frequently Asked Questions

Computer Vision Challenge: Use a labelled dataset from one of the computer vision challenges to explore a problem in image analysis (e.g., Detection, Classification, Recognition , Tracking, Segmentation , Foreground/Background, Saliency detection, video Surveillance, Multi view, Action, Human Pose/Expression). Be aware that there's not much time in the project to use a very large dataset!

Another source of computer vision challenges is the workshops associated with the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition workshops - skin imaging, UAV detection, fashion, autonomous driving, etc.

Alternative communication channels: Most data apps will use a dashboard or a mobile phone interface to communicate or signal information. What other communication channels could be used to create data-driven visualisations? Eg. audio "visualisations" rather than colour graphs; or digital signage to relay information in the physical world.
