What challenges did he face?

  • Tommy is a talented programmer, but he wanted a mentor to help him enhance his talents through a project.
  • His task was to increase the accuracy of his dataset by training and testing the dataset.

Matched professor:

A Chemical Engineering lecturer at University of Washington.  He integrates engineer and data science — including the DIRECT course series in software engineering and data science.

How did our program help him?

  • Tommy used Python’s scikit-learn module to edit and visualize his dataset.
  • Finally, he learnt about convolutional neural network, which is an advanced machine learning algorithm used in data analytics.

Below is part of an example work done during the program:
