This is one interesting HCI game I designed using computer vision. Thank my teammates, we got hightest score in EECS 442

Research and Project

Prescription Transcription using Machine Translation
Aug 2019 - Current

Electronic Transcription of Prescriptions (ETP) in health care has been suggested to have positive impact for prescribing process in safety, quality, efficiency for both prescribers and pharmacists. We are trying to use Deep learning method to automatically transcripe prescription to pharmacy instructions. More details in following paper.

How about Avengers: Endgame? Movie revenue prediction with hierarchical model[5]
Jan 2019 - Apr 2019

We found movie revenue followed two Gaussion Distrubution: High revenue and Low revenue. Based on this obeservation, we trained High-low binary Random Forest Classifier (RFC performed best) based on labels from Gaussion Mixture Model (GMM) clustering. After classification, we trained movie Gradient Boosting Regression (GBR performed best) separately and using Back-off strategy to solving cold start problem. We also tested generalization of our classification + regression model on Europe Soccer Players.

Identify Medication Relations from Clinical Narratives[4]
Nov 2018 - Mar 2019

Identifying medication relations between drugs and associated attributes automatically from clinical narratives can help develop advanced tools for decision support. We investigate the strengths of neural network models to identify eight medication relations. We find that relation extraction is sensitive to complexity of data patterns as well as model capacity. Our results show that Bi-LSTM models achieved an overall F1 score of 0.892 on eight tasks, outperforming SVM and CNN models.

Video Segments Retrieval System based on Attentive Convolutionsl Neural Network[3]
Sep 2018 - Dec 2018

Traditional methods simply relay on manual hash tags, title and description of video compared with free text query, which su‚ffers from high bias and low accuracy. We proposed a novel video segments retrieval system based on architecture Attentive Convolutional Nerual Network (ACNN), achieving state-of-the-art performance on TACoS dataset.
