This project investigates the associations between geriatric assessment based features and relative dose intensity of chemotherapy. It is at the first few phases of Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Ger Oncology Research team at University of Rochester Medical Center. The team refined the data preprocessing pipeline, built predictive models and employed feature selection on the dataset, providing insightful suggestions for future work in cancer studies.
The City of Rochester wants to understand if physical proximity to a convenience store or liquor store affects the likelihood of different types of part 1 crimes.
The Geriatric Oncology Research Team at URMC wants to better understand chemotherapy tolerability in vulnerable older adults.
The goal of the project was to identify upsell opportunities for Paychex’s 401(k) service products to their existing clients.
Rochester Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative (RMAPI) launched a new survey to better understand the impact of COVID- 19 on community member’s income and basic needs as well as what community members need to be safe and financially secure. The goal of the project was to analyze the survey and responses to inform United Way which kind of assistance needs to be provided, and what features of living necessities are more important for the respondents.
Identify scenarios where DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) failure is likely to happen so that the trucking customer can be alerted in advance to avoid costly roadside breakdowns.
The main objective is to identify the maximum water flow tolerance of the Moses-Saunders Dam in order not to exceed the permissible limits of Lake St. Louis.
The project supported the goal of UR Utilities and Energy Management deparment to improve the efficiency of chilled water production through predictive modeling
The goal of the project was to explore public perception on COVID-19 vaccine by analyzing social media platform data (Twitter).
The project aim was: 1) Understand how the degree of mental health issues changed over time and space during COVID-19; 2) Find out what topics are people concerned about, and 3) Infer what group of people are more likely to have mental health issues.
To spur museum membership growth, encourage donations from members, and increase overall museum revenue
Development of a telehealth platform that provides digital optical prescriptions, making high quality vision accessible to everyone.
Our senior design project is implementing an AI chess board. It uses Python and the popular chess engine Stockfish on a Raspberry Pi to show the user with LEDs where the computer would like to make its move. Our project was a success and could be used as a beginning step to make a more complex and intuitive chess board that plays chess against a user.
The Caldwell-Fay equation (2002) attempts to model what Lake Ontario’s current water level would be if dam construction had never taken place along the St. Lawrence Seaway (i.e. the natural hydraulic state of the lake).
Newly unearthed Lake Ontario data going back to the 1860s has been discovered, and we had the rare opportunity to be the first to digitize and publicly analyze it.
Since this data set predates any dam construction it actually captures the lake’s natural state. Therefore it can be used to verify Caldwell-Fey’s equation which is being used to govern the lake’s inflow and outflow rate on a daily basis.
MOTLEY (Main Organizing Terminal for Low Energy Usage) focuses on the creation of a Smart Home using a Raspberry Pi as the central device. Similar to the google home, we are able to control our in-house made and thoughtfully designed custom peripherals through the use of this Pi, granting our user the ability to remotely control various devices in their homes from their current location.
We were given a patient reported symptoms dataset PRO-CTCAE and applied a variety of clustering methods. The clusters were then statistically tested for associations with a selection of outcomes such as hospitalization. We found significant associations with clusters and outcomes and compared it to linear regression results.
There is a need to ensure that drivers are alerted of approaching emergency vehicles so that they can remove themselves from the path of the emergency vehicle. It is especially a challenge for deaf, hard of hearing, and distracted drivers to identify emergency signals, which puts them at an increased risk for collision. In this project, we developed a device for use in the car that detects emergency vehicles and notifies the driver of their presence. We used a trained convolutional neural network to detect sirens in noisy environments. On our validation set, we achieved a 95% detection accuracy with a 50% criterion. A demonstration of our real-time detector and design schematic are shown below.
RTS is a regional transportation authority established by New York State and the goal of the project is to find the potential reasons for preventable accidents caused by bus operators. First, descriptive and exploratory analysis is performed on all the data provided and driver-related variables and environmental-related variables. Then, frequent pattern mining is applied and conditional probabilities are calculated for the accident history of operators with high risk of accidents to extract accident patterns.
Using a rope of LEDs, connected to a Raspberry Pi with our software, we will read the audio signal from an HDMI cable and display colors on the LED strip that match the tone of the music. . The goal of our project is to be able to create a visualization to convey a similar feeling to people that are unable to hear the music.
In this project, we want to apply DSC and machine learning techniques to identify and analyze group communication and interaction patterns from the data collected, e.g. “Who interacts with whom” and “Who attended which breakout sessions”, which can function as an indicator of team performance, group intelligence and meeting efficiency. We can further use the information to increase the productivity of Un-meetings by modifying related elements.
