Hands-on Practices & Tools

Capstone Projects

Project 1: MLOps Workflow for Hospital Emergency Prediction using ETS Data on AWS

Project Overview:
The objective of this project is to develop and implement a Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) framework for predicting emergent medical situations at the point of patient admission to a hospital. This predictive model will leverage historical patient data, particularly the Emergency Triage Score (ETS) dataset, to probabilistically anticipate instances where a significant influx of patients is likely to occur. This project will harness data-driven insights to enhance the preparatory capacities of healthcare facilities in responding to emergent medical scenarios, thereby improving overall healthcare service efficiency and patient care outcomes.The goal of this project is to develop a Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) workflow to predict hospital emergencies at the time of patient admission. This predictive model will help healthcare providers allocate resources efficiently and prepare for potential surges in patient volume.

Project 2: Financial Fraud Detection using Deep Learning and MLOps

Project Overview:
This project aims to predict the demand for delivery drivers in specific regions and times, leveraging MLOps methodologies. By analyzing order requests, driver activity, and related parameters, the goal is to optimize delivery charges, ensuring consistency and minimizing customer drop-offs. The unpredictable nature of delivery charges, primarily due to driver unavailability, often results in increased prices and subsequent customer dissatisfaction. This project seeks to bridge this gap by forecasting driver demand, thereby streamlining delivery pricing.

Project 5: Personalized Financial Advisor using Large Language Model (LLM)

Project Overview:
The field of finance can be complex and overwhelming for individuals seeking personalized financial advice. In order to make informed decisions regarding investments, retirement planning, budgeting, and financial products, individuals often require guidance from financial experts.

The automated answer validation system for science question answering will benefit educators and students in science-related subjects. It will streamline the assessment process, reduce manual effort, and ensure consistent evaluations, leading to improved learning outcomes in the science domain.

Project 8: GAN based interior designs

Project Overview:
A GAN is a popular model for unsupervised machine learning where two neural networks — a generator and a discriminator, interact with each other. The generator generates images out of random noise it takes as input; The discriminator detects whether these generated images are fake or real (by comparing them to the images in a dataset). This process continues for several epochs until the discriminator loss between fake and real achieves its minimum. As the loss reaches the minimum, the generator becomes sufficiently skilled in generating images similar to those in the original dataset. AI-driven innovation with GANs has many applications in creative industries such as design. Be it architectural design, landscape design or interiors design, the possibilities are endless. Such generated designs have the potential to drive rapid growth and profits in the design industry. The goal of this project is to generate realistic new interior room designs by training a GAN network on the IKEA Interior Design Dataset.

Project 9: Image-based plant disease identification

Project Overview:
Crop losses due to diseases are a major threat to food security every year, across countries. Conventionally, plant diseases were detected through a visual examination of the affected plants by plant pathology experts. This was often possible only after major damage had already occurred, so treatments were of limited or no use. Recently, access to smartphone based image capturing has highly increased amongst farmers and agriculturists. This has led to the successful adoption of plant disease diagnostic applications based on deep learning techniques. This is of immense value in the field of agriculture and an excellent tool for faster identification and treatment of crop diseases. It holds key importance in preventing crop based food and economic losses. The goal of this project is to build a convolutional neural network or to use transfer learning and develop a plant disease identification tool.

Project 10: Food Image Segmentation

Project Overview:
Worldwide, obesity has nearly tripled since 1975. In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight (WHO sources). In such a situation, documenting dietary caloric intake is crucial to manage weight loss. Food image segmentation is a critical and indispensable task for developing health-related applications such as automated estimation of food calories and nutrients as a means for dietary monitoring. One of the challenges in this area is the improvement of accuracy in dietary assessment by food image analysis. However, how to derive the food information (e.g., food type and portion size) from food images effectively is a challenging task and an open research problem. In this project, participants are expected to make a model that can segment the food components present in an input food image and build an application that can predict the food class and the food portions from it.

Project 11: Personalized Financial Advisor using Large Language Model (LLM)

Project Overview:
The field of finance can be complex and overwhelming for individuals seeking personalized financial advice. In order to make informed decisions regarding investments, retirement planning, budgeting, and financial products, individuals often require guidance from financial experts. The aim of this project is to develop an Intelligent Financial Advisor powered by a Large Language Model (LLM) to provide personalized financial advice and guidance to individuals. By leveraging NLP and machine learning techniques, the Intelligent Financial Advisor will assist users in making informed financial decisions and achieving their financial goals.
