Other Coding Projects
During my time in the computer science I have started with under graduate courses and worked my way up to Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Reinforcement Learning Courses. iOS development is probably one of my favorites outside of those courses. Theory is also a lot of fun, even though it is the least favorite courses for more computer science students.
Reinforcement Learning Maze Game
I’ve made a lot of complicated projects now that I’ve started with the computer science department. One of my favorites is probably from my reinforcement learning course. The course only asked that we pick something that we wanted to use reinforcement learning on. During the class we talked a lot about one particular maze. It was used in every example of RL that we talked about. It was simple, but I often found it difficult to understand fully how the learners would process through the maze.
This program allowed students to go through each kind of learner to see how it processes and finds the best path. The plan is to make it even better and allow for more learners like SARSA and Q-learning so that the students for Fall 2016 can really see how it works.
For more information, see the paper that I wrote for the class.
Smart Watch for Nutrition Monitoring
I worked on a project with a team who were attempting to use a smart watch to track nutrition monitoring. I worked on the smart watch, on the code to parse the data that came from the smart watch, and the machine learning analysis. Check out the project paper here.
Marathon Training Application
I purchased an app on the app store from Hal Higdon. He has very good marathon training programs, but terrible iOS applications. It would take information about when your marathon was, but then when you went to post the training program to your calendar, it wouldn’t start from there and go backward. It would start from the current day, and go forward, and then end weeks before your marathon. So I built the app myself. The code for the project can be found on my GitHub.
