    • A simple voice assistant built using open source NLP libraries.

    • Can do tasks such as fetching a youtube video by saying a keyword, announcing the weather and stock market related news retrieval.

  • Blob detection on cellular images:

    • Given an image of a group of cells, detect abnormalities among them based on discriminative characteristics such as size, color, etc.

  • Lidar-Camera Extrinsic Calibration:

    • Establish a universal coordinate system and perform extrinsic calibration across sensors mounted at different locations on an autonomous vehicle.

    • Use this algorithm for tasks such as object detection, lane detection, etc.
