EXPERIENCE


An Efficient Walking Safety Service for Distracted Mobile Users                                               Nov. 2015 – Jun. 2017
Research Assistant, Java, Python, OpenCV, MATLAB, Eclipse, Git, Android

  • Built a system in handling real-scenario images, utilizing the ORB based feature extraction algorithm and three classification algorithms of KNN, Bayes and SVM.
  • Designed a smart strategy that considers the records of detection results in the surrounding environment and increased the accuracy rates of detection from 79% to higher than 99%.
  • Applied an Android application that runs in the background, controlling the camera to capture images and automatically adjusting the sampling interval in response to corresponding occasions.

PROJECT


MoDeal – a Price Comparison Shopping Website                                                              Aug. 2018 – Dec. 2018
Leader of a five-member team, Back-End developer, Python, Django, Git, MySQL, KNN

  • Built a web crawler and also utilized the official python APIs to get the price, URL, and pictures of related items from eBay, Walmart, Best Buy and Etsy according to the pre-processed search contents.
  • Applied KNN algorithm on item price and combined with item condition, country and more to remove the irrelevant results, generated an items quick filter and stored the frequent results into the database.
  • Implemented user accounts features and associated them with the favorite list function.

Wumpus Game Artificial Intelligence System Design                                                      Feb. 2018 – Apr. 2018
C++, Uniform-Cost Search

  • Designed a logic actuator that could apply smart strategies to decide the following actions of a gaming bot based on information collected by sensors and the purpose of searching traps and shooting monsters.
  • Utilized a modified Uniform-Cost search algorithm to calculate the length of the shortest paths to targets, which is combined with other information to obtain a big possibility of the best performance.

Data Management – Building a Database Management System                                  Oct. 2017 – Jan. 2018
C++, SQL, B+ tree, LRU

  • Built a 5-layer Database Management System, which includes Paged File Manager layer, Buffer Manager layer, Record-Based File and Index Manager layer, Relation Manager layer, and Query Engine layer.
  • Accomplished all of the extra points challenges involving non-lazy entry deletion and schema versioning and acquired the highest score in the most tricky part of the project (B+ tree index implementation).
