About the Project

It is a challenging task to train deep learning models on unbalanced data which is commonly generated in real-time scenarios. It is also a big challenge training Deep Learning algorithms on limited data.

The complexity escalates when training deep learning algorithms on multi-modal data spaces. Projects include the development of algorithms for classifying unbalanced and/or data obtained from smart environments.
