  • Engineered an innovative proprietary solution for the determination of human wrist ergonomics. Achieved accuracy and precision comparable to industry gold standards; a significant advancement in ergonomic research.
  • Conducted extensive testing on various model types to optimize wrist posture angle prediction from 2D data, achieving a competitive Mean Absolute Error (MAE) of 7 degrees. Further improved accuracy with the integration of 3D datasets, achieving an impressive MAE of 5 degrees, aligning with top-tier markerless motion capture systems.
  • Employed cost-effective off-the-shelf equipment in controlled experiments, and open-source software to capture and generate an extensive dataset of human wrist motion data. This was crucial for successful machine learning model training, enabling predictive analysis of ergonomic wrist postures through computer vision techniques.
  • Led the development of a robust pipeline combining YOLOv5 and ResNet-34 Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to process extensive open-source datasets, extract facial features from images, and perform gender and race classification. Achieving 99% confidence in gender classification and an impressive 95% confidence in race classification.
  • Designed experiments to evaluate machine learning models on a multi-modal human action dataset achieving an F1 score of 0.90 in classifying 21 upper body motions related to biomechanical movement.
