CS 388 – Week 2 (3 Ideas)

with No Comments
  1. My first idea is to create an application that scans the picture of foods and let users know what ingredients are in the dish. I am still deciding whether I want my app to be used as a diet and nutrition guide or aid for visually impaired people. This application will be available in multiple languages (at least 3). Xunfei had provided me more questions to explore as feedback. I will integrate computer vision and natural language processing in this project.
  2. My second idea is a program that detects prank calls made to 911 or other emergency centers. I will focus on details of the caller’s speech such as the urgency, intonations, breathing, etc. as well as background noises like whether the background is too quiet or too loud or is there any footsteps, etc.
  3. My third idea is to generate speech from a user’s hand gestures in several languages. I plan to piggyback an already existing and working program that translates hand gestures to speech. My main focus will be on improving that program and working to the accuracy of language translations.
