This past week, I spent time working on the presentation. I also met with Charlie to discuss the presentation slides. Charlie told me to replace a table in the Motivation section with graphs to show how wildfires have increased overtime. … Read More
I realized that the database I found for food nutrition is not enough for the calorie estimation so I looked for more resources. I started learning SQL.
For this week I looked into many different datasets, including gis fire map data https://frap.fire.ca.gov/mapping/gis-data/ and Kaggle dataset https://www.kaggle.com/elikplim/forest-fires-data-set but couldn’t find what I was looking for. I picked The Ranch Fire in California but couldn’t find good datasets for … Read More
For this week I have done the following tasks: Learned to view shapefile contents with Netlogo and Python library pyshp. A shapefile is an Esri vector data storage format for storing the location, shape, and attributes of geographic features. This type of file … Read More
Finished propsal first draft. Explored softwares for image processing.
This week I met with Charlie to discuss my project design. We also talked about GIS extension, which is a library to handle GIS data for NetLogo. Charlie talked about how to layer different types of data on a base … Read More
I discussed my new idea with Charlie and Xunfei. I searched for more papers about 3D modeling and volume estimation but could not find a lot. I will be creating an Andriod application, so I looked into Andriod camera API … Read More
After coming back from CMU workshop for CS researches, I have decided to modify my idea a bit to integrate more CV into the project. From recipe recommendation and calorie estimation, I have decided to focus only on calorie estimation. … Read More
I read and did more research on different algorithms of recipe recommendation. I removed some papers from my box that turned out to be not quite related and added some more papers. I also wrote the final version of my … Read More
For this week, I started working on NetLogo, the software that I plan to use to create the simulation model for my project. I looked into the tutorials and the sample models library. NetLogo has its own programming language and … Read More
I met with Charlie for the weekly meeting. We discussed different designs for my simulation model. I will first create some input data, which includes creating dummy values for the base map instead of using a real map. The main … Read More
I’ve finished writing the Literature Review for my idea “Fire Spread Simulation Using Cellular Automata.” After reading the papers for my research, I found a recent paper on this topic which used Machine Learning to solve the drawbacks of previous … Read More
I’ve chosen “Fire Simulation Using Cellular Automata” as my final idea. I have also met with Charlie and decided to meet every week on Monday. I will also meet with Xunfei regularly for my research. Xunfei has suggested that I … Read More
I have decided on the project I will be working on as my senior project. I have talked to Charlie about it, discuss my ideas regarding this project. He will be my advisor for the project. I have found 10 … Read More
I have talked to Xunfei about my 3 ideas and decided to discard one of my 3 ideas because of overhead issues. I wrote 2 annotated bibliographies of my 2 ideas with 3 papers each. I have also done more … Read More
I wrote 3 annotated bibliographies, one for each idea, and each of the annotated bibliographies is composed of 2 papers I have found for my ideas. I went to San Diego to attend Tapia conference of diversity in computing.
Here are my comments for the papers I read this week.  Forest fires spread modeling using cellular automata approach. They described a method using cellular automata to simulate how fire spread over an area of island Brac in Croatia. … Read More
Below are the papers I read for each idea this week. I also read more papers for my third idea, “Fire Spread Simulation” and found the cellular automata algorithm mentioned in one of the papers quite interesting. The basic idea … Read More
Talked to Charlie about my ideas and got feedback from him. Found 5 papers for each idea.
For this week, I read the papers on Moodle, met with Charlie to discuss my ideas, and read papers related to them. Below are some updates for each topic. Idea 1 Title: Improve Fire Identification Mapping and Monitoring Algorithm (FIMMA) … Read More
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 … Read More
1 ) Name of Your Project: Improve Fire Identification Mapping and Monitoring Algorithm (FIMMA). Enhance FIMMA to reduce the number of false-positive results and apply the algorithm to detect fire in urban areas. 2 ) Name of Your Project: Fire … Read More
Name of My Project Managing Fire From Space Improve Fire Identification Mapping and Monitoring Algorithm (FIMMA). What research topic/question is my project going to address? Space technology has been used to improve life on Earth through many applications. One of … Read More
