Projects

  • Variational Autoencoder for Collaborative Filtering

    A replication study where we extended variational autoencoders (VAEs) to collaborative filtering in recommender systems. (Using Pandas, Tensorflow and Pytorch)

  • Income Predictor

    Using Machine Learning Models such as Artificial Neural Network and Support Vector Machines for a dataset, we developed an income predictor.

  • Football Federation Database

    We modeled Iranian football federation database and implemented it with SQL.

  • Reward and punishment management system

    Based on methods for Object Oriented System Design and Analysis, we analyzed, designed, and implemented a reward and punishment management system.

  • Instance-Optimal Geometric Algorithms

    As bachelor's thesis, I worked on generating instance-optimal algorithms for convex hull problem with application in car collision avoidance.

  • Information retrieval system by Lucence and data clustering

    Using Apache Lucene library, we made an information retrieval system for Hamshahri Newspaper Archive; then, implemented some classification algorithms in Machine Learning to classify the text documents.
