A two-way marketplace for more equitable crowdsourcing.

I am helping develop Daemo, a crowdsourcing platform for Dr. Michael Bernstein at the Stanford HCI group. Some technologies in use are Python, Django, Javascript, Angular, Postgres, Redis, HTML5, CSS/SCSS.

In collaboration with the MIT Interactive Robotics Lab

I am helping make human-robot interactions better under Dr. Bilge Mutlu. Human-robot collaboration is difficult. There are no easy ways to create tasks for robots and have a human work with the robot as a partner. Hence, I am creating an easy-to-use Authoring Environment, that enables anyone to give instructions to industrial robots.

The NSF NRI Authoring Environment.

The easy-to-use authoring environment is built with Javascript, powered by the Angular Material library. With around 76,000 lines of code, this environment is powerful, robust and user friendly.

I am launching the Artificial Intelligence Club of UW-Madison this coming Fall of 2017. The club's mission is to promote artificial intelligence knowledge and learning, and create a tightly knit group of people working on hard problems in the field of AI.

Spent my summer of 2017 at Stanford Engineering's Centre for Design Research under Dr. Wendy Ju. I helped build a computer vision system written using OpenCV in C++ to help control interactive robots. To accompany that, I also built an iPad app to give path instructions to the vision system to control the robot.

Facial Recognition System with Smart Home

Smart homes exist already, but the multiple devices in the smart home don't communicate seamlessly with each other. There exist clunky remote controls which feel dated. A true improvement in smart home technology will be an ubiquitous install-and-forget experience. Our project is a step towards that direction - we created a computer vision system that automatically changes smart home preferences by looking at people's faces and identifying users.

A Peer-to-Peer tutoring App

Getting tutoring is difficult. It costs money, or if free, is still inconvenient and difficult to access. PeerPear makes it very easy by creating a Peer-to-Peer tutoring platform, wherein peers can tutor each other and exchange knowledge.

Making healthcare accessible.

Healthcare costs are rising at an insane rate and society's healthcare needs are always growing. DocBot demonstrates an alternative method: access a physician in your pocket. Powered by Artificial Intelligence technology, an AI Doctor can become much better than the best physician in the world by consuming incredible amounts of data.
