About the Project
Proper deep learning algorithms will be investigated in this research project. Multidisciplinary techniques among the following areas will be explored: deep learning, IoT, computer vision, embedded system, data science, computer networking, electronic & electrical engineering, optimisation, mobile computing, etc. Multiple types of IoT devices will be used in this research project to implement a prototype, such as Raspberry Pis, mobile phones, smartwatches, etc.
This project is supervised by Dr. Bo Wei
