Hands-on Projects

Gender and Age Detection

Description:  This project involves developing a model that can detect any human being’s age and gender through analyses of single-face detection via an image. The model is developed on the UTK Face dataset.

Applications: It is widely used in various applications such as access control, human-computer interaction, and law enforcement.

Oil Price Prediction

Description: This project focuses on creating a time-dependent model capable of making modelling decisions predicting around three months’ price of crude oil. The project emphasises a sound understanding of Data Engineering and Data visualization. It provides hands-on experience in Model fitting and Model Validation.

COVID-19 Data Visualization

Description: This project involves creating a pictorial representation of the current COVID-19 data on a map and presenting a quick update. The goal is to collect and visualize a map version of the coronavirus outbreak, providing an agile know-how on the crisis, pinned with a glimpse at its history.
