Adam Kosak2D Game: fill/connect all tiles with a continuous pathMartin CaminadaGeorge Theodorakopoulos2021-CM3203
The basic premise of the proposal is to create a simple game based around trying to fill a grid in one continous path. The main inspirations for this are snake game, or rather its hypothethical end goal of eventually filling the entire board with the snake's body as it gets longer (view the gif for reference: https://i.imgur.com/oo6abA0.gif), and various puzzles with the goal of connecting all pathways with one continuous line. The main difference between my idea and traditional snake, is that ...[more]
Adriano SoleIdentifying narrative text on RedditSteven SchockaertPhilipp Reinecke2021-CM3203
Neural network models for natural language processing are typically pre-trained on large text collections such as Wikipedia. This allows these models to learn word knowledge without the need for an explicit supervision signal. However, the kind of knowledge they can learn in this way crucially depends on the type of text collection that is used. For instance, Wikipedia is a common choice. By pre-training models on encylopedic text, they can acquire a lot of factual knowledge about the world. On ...[more]

Damjan DimovskiMirror detection from RGBD imagesJing WuHiroyuki Kido2021-CM3203
Mirrors often cause ambiguities in scene understanding. For example, when a robot sees a corridor reflected from a large mirror, it may not be able to tell it's a reflected scene and wrongly navigate into it. This ambiguity is particularly a problem when using RGB (image) information only. On the other hand, depth sensing provides an additional modality that complements the RGB information. This project will use an RGBD camera to collect images with mirrors in them, compare the data captured i...[more]

Tom KelrossA platform that combines spaced repetition and code-katas, to teach python more effectively.Martin J ChorleyFederico Liberatore2021-CM3203
Spaced repetition[0] is a proven evidence based learning technique. It is most commonly talked about in relation to learning a modern foreign langauge, however it can also be used to assist in learning a programming language[1]. A code kata[2] is a programming drill that helps programmers hone their skills through practice and repetition. For this project, I would like to build a platform that makes it easy for teachers to create a set of flashcards/programming drills that students can pract...[more]

Valeria Gomez RamirezA Deep Learning Approach to Brain Age Prediction in Schizophrenia, Parkinson’s Disease and Post-Traumatic Stress DisorderStuart M AllenHelen R Phillips2021-CM3203
Recent publications have shown that training supervised regression methods on MRI brain imaging can be used to predict the brain age of an individual with high precision. We can use these predictions to detect diseases associated with abnormal brain ageing where the predicted age does not match the chronological age. In this paper, we develop a convolutional neural network to predict brain age accurately. The architecture of the model is a simplified adaptation of the VGG architecture. The netw...[more]
