Unconstrained handwriting recognition

Handwriting Recognition

Recognizing unconstrained handwriting is a complex problem. Variations between writers, overlapping words, changing skew, changing slant and other properties lead to bad recognition rates on models designed for printed text. We are working on better recognition rates using the context aware properties of Bi-LSTM after extracting multiple features from the training data.

Business Analytics for Industrial IOT using LoRa Mesh (BA-iLM)

Data Acquisition

Business Analytics for Industrial IOT using LoRa Mesh (BA-iLM) is a funded project by Unilever which uses LoRa Technology and Sensor Networks for data acquisition from different parts of Unilever's Wall's Factory. Data gathered from the factory is then integrated and analysed using concepts of Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing in order to produce better visualizations and reports to facilitate better decision-making.

Underwater Imaging for Fish Fauna Estimation

Visual Similarity

This project aims at developing a non-invasive software system to detect and calculate the statistics of fish species in open waters of Pakistan. This software will be aided by a hardware that will help us in collecting fish data. This hardware will be developed to record video data of underwater environment containing fish species under observation.
