Selected Projects

Feedback Control Algorithm for Soft Manipulator Based on Honey-comb Pneumatic Networks
I proposed a model-less control method, which was the first to implement accurate position and orientation control for soft manipulators under uncertain external load in 3D space. The video illustrates the effectiveness of the control algorithm. Related paper Model-Less Feedback Control for Soft Manipulators (pdf) was accapted by IROS (IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) 2017.

A Keras Implementation of Fast-Neural-Style
It was the course project of Computational Photography on 2018 Fall. I implemented a real-time style transfrom network utlizing Keras. Several new features are also added, which allowed users combining multiple styles and adjusting hyper-parameters in a user-friendly way.

Non-invasive Assessment of Photoreceptor Cells in Human Retina
I developed an algorithm for measurement of cone photoreceptor cells density by untilizing the Yellot’s ring in the Fourier domain of original retina images. The algorithm achieved higher accuracy on blurred images than other algorithms utilizing Hough Transform, soft-margin SVM and CNN on real-world clinical datasets. I also developed a workflow which can analyze retina images fully automatically, including image preprocessing, automatic image cropping and cone counting algorithms. The picture illustrates the image cropping process in the workflow.

Machine Learning: Implementation of Classifers & K-means Algorithm
It was the course work for 2017 USTC Fundamental Artificial Intelligence class. I implemented several algorithms to group comments from IMDB comment dataset, and achieved K-means algorithm for image compression. The picture illustrates results generated by K-means algorithm with different parameters.
