Today, I’ve being working with the videos again due to I made an error and I had to start over. It kind of bothers me that some of the data doesn’t match but I think I am getting the hang of this and I’m learning from my mistakes and others to.
I forgot to post yesterday because I was in a meeting and after it I worked on the video data for our project. On Wednesday we finished Unity and got to choose our Deeper Dive, I got Unity Immersive. I’m excited with my deeper dive, I liked Unity the most of all the courses we have taken. Yesterday after work we went to Perfect Games, played bowling and laser tag, which was fun and then we got ate at Mc Donalds. When we got back home one of my fellow interns was waiting for me with a cake and I was really happy and surprise, you know who you are and thanks a lot.
P.S Thank you all for the birthday wishes and for going with me to Perfect Games, I had a lot of fun!!
Ahmed watch out for the cops ha ha ha
Finally its wednesday, middle of week 4. This week I haven’t being doing that much, I continued my Python tutorial, still haven’t started the ML one. Also, on Monday I read about ffmpeg and I wanted to continue reading but I was to tired when I got back home. Today we worked with Unity during the morning and now I hope to start working with our dataset and ffmpeg.
As expected, yesterday I started reading about ffmpeg but I don’t quite understand it yet. Also, I read a little more about HCI so im more familiar with everything we have being learning and working. For the next few days I will continue learning and reading about ffmpeg, hopefully I’ll understand it and start working with our paper and the dataset for our algorithm.
Fun fact: We, me and the REus, are going bowling on thursday since its my birthday and I wanted to do something fun.
The weekend passed by to fast but it didn’t mean that I didn’t had fun. Some of the other interns and I went to the movies on Friday, mall on Saturday and yesterday rest. After this awesome weekend we start a new week and with it new challenges. This week we are suppose to be reading papers, learning ffmpeg and creating a dataset of images from the videos. I haven’t started learning ffmpeg so one of my tasks for this week is to learn it. Another task is to create the dataset with my teammate Ahmed. I know we can do it after we completely understand what we are doing and how to do it. Besides that, I hope to have a great Birthday Week, were I can have fun, accomplish my tasks and rest.
The end of Week 3, yay! That means we are going back home soon but as good as that sounds it means its getting harder. This week the TIMELI team (Ahmed, Ilan and I) was assigned to train a deep learning algorithm to identify Cats and Dogs and we suceded. We also turned in our Problem Area Paragraph which means that after we add some stuff missing we can get started with our paper which we have to turn in soon. I am glad we accomplished our task for this week and hope we can accomplish the tasks assigned for next week. As for today, we are going to take a night off and go see Incredibles 2 on Cinemark Theater.
That’s all for this week folks, stay tuned for more.
This week my research team and I, Ahmed, Ilan and I, finally turned in our Problem Area Paragraph. We also got our deep learning algorithm trained to identify cats and dogs pictures. Interactions within our team were good but I still think it can be better due to sometimes someone decide to do something by themselves without letting the teammates know.
Today my team and I went to the Traffic Management Center. It was really cool how they detect the accidents, constructions and stalled vehicles. After this visit to the TMC I have a much clear idea of what our project goal and really learn how the actual TMC detection system really works. For the rest of the week I hope to accomplish turning in the Problem Area Paragraph, learn more python and ML besides teaching a deep learning algorithm to identify dogs and cats.
For this week we have the tasks of learning about machine learning and python. Once we are done with that, we have to train a deep model learning algorithm for a computer vision AI. I think this tasks requiere a lot of time and dedication, also it requires careful thinking and comprehension. I already started learning python and I find my way a little familiarize with the syntax and everything. Can’t wait to get into machine learning.
This weekend was a little different, on Saturday we went to the Ropes Course which was fun and a little scary. On Sunday, we went to get our bikes and fix bikes, measure rims, etc. After that, we rode our bikes back to Freddy Court.
Today we are starting week 3, so exciting! For this week I plan to accomplish learning/familiarizing with python, machine learning and understand solidworks. Besides that, I’m really looking forward to the TMC (Traffic Management Center) visit to explore the place and see how everything works.
