Anja – The Third Eye

Project “Anja” (the third eye, in Sanskrit language) is meant to help visually impaired people recognize day to day objects. The students used a Raspberry Pi, a Pi Camera, an external speaker and Python code to enable four capabilities (visual recognition, artificial intelligence, text to speech and speech to action) to work together. The Raspberry

The Structure of the Positive Monoid of Integer-Valued Polynomials Evaluated at an Algebraic Number

By: Andrei M.Year: 2021School: University HighGrade: 12Science Teacher: Tim Smay Motivated by the characterization of symmetric monoidal functors between Deligne categories, the additive monoid R_+(x) is defined as the set of all nonnegative integer linear combinations of binomial coefficients (x choose n) for nonnegative integers n. Andrei’s project was concerned with the inquiry into the


By: Justin L.Year: 2021School: Troy HighGrade: 10Science Teacher: Kevin Jones AIVIS is an online application that allows for easy creation of an Artificial Neural Network. Artificial neural networks (ANNs), usually simply called neural networks (NNs), are computing systems inspired by the biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. An ANN is based on a collection of

Assessment of Breast Density Using Unsupervised Variational Auto-Encoders

By: Su K.Year: 2021School: Capistrano Valley HighGrade: 11Science Teacher: Cheryl Johnson AbstractAbout 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast density is a strong indicator for breast cancer. Women with extremely dense breasts have a sixfold greater risk of developing breast cancer. This study is about the assessment of breast

AI Archery Coach: Using Computer Vision and LSTM Neural Networks to Evaluate Archery Form

By: Dylan S.Year: 2021School: University HighGrade: 10Science Teacher: Valerie Thompson This project explores the development of a two-stage computer vision and LSTM neural network program that can assist archers by giving them an evaluation on their release. The computer vision function was designed specifically to replace a wrist-worn device developed in a prior project. Computer

Voting Fraud Detector

By: Ben A.Year: 2021School: McPherson MagnetGrade: 8Science Teacher: Elizabeth Conrad Ben’s project is titled “Fraud Detector,” and based on the research question, “Can Benford’s Law detect voting fraud?” Benford’s Law is a theory that the first digit in every number of certain data sets will follow a pattern. The pattern is that about 30% of
