I have done multiple website projects including personal websites, websites for CityU and CityU Staff.
This is my final year project where I am using privacy preserving machine learning methods (Federated Learning) on bioactivity data set, for tackling the problems of collaboration and data confidentiality in the pharmaceutical industry.
Model to convert Audio to Text using the SpeecRecognition library in Python. It furture included unsupersived topic modelling using gensim model to create a summary of the text and give a list of topics from the converted text.
One of my first Data Science projects in Python. I used scikitlearn and applied various classifier functions like XGBoost, Random Forest, Decision Tree Classifier, Clustering analysis on a data set from Kaggle to predict Credit Card Payment Defaulters from the given attributes.
A Tensorflow CNN based project to recognize if an arieal image (satellite image) contains a cactus or not. The Project used various image augumentation techniques to improve accuracy and reached an accuracy of 96%
