Featured Projects

Visual analytics (VA) systems with semantic interaction help users craft machine learning (ML) based solutions in various domains such as bio-informatics, finance, sports, etc. However current semantic interaction based approaches are data and task-specific which might not generalize across different problem scenarios. In this project, we describe a novel technique of abstracting user intents and goals in the form of an interactive objective function which can guide any auto-ML based model optimizer (such as Hyperopt, Sigopt, etc.) to construct classification models catering to the expectation
The rise of ubiquitous technology has resulted in opportunities for the design of new interactive museum exhibits that can be customized to families. Children's museums can be engaging, informal settings in which children learn fundamental science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts through hands-on experiences.
Isola is a VR experience that takes place in a fantasy world consisted of many floating islands. Special pieces representing forgotten dreams are scattered in the space. The player has to find his lost pieces to become complete again. During the Journey, a special vehicle will be available for navigation and interaction. With the vehicle, the player can sail among the floating islands. He/she will overcome bad weather, throw a ring to attract giant fish, and at the end, combine two broken pieces collected along the way to form a full star.
