CNN-based Facial Affect Analysis on Mobile Devices - 2018PDF
Charlie Hewitt, Hatice Gunes
Paper focussing on the design, deployment and evaluation of Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architectures for facial affect analysis on mobile devices. The proposed architectures equal the dataset baseline while minimising storage requirements. A user study demonstrates the feasibility of deploying the models for real-world applications.
Confidence measures for CNN classification using Gaussian processes - 2018PDF
Paper presenting a hybrid classification technique using Gaussian processes fitted on features extracted by a convolutional neural network to enable estimation of prediction confidence. The classifier is evaluated on the MNIST dataset and shown to have somewhat meaningful implications for confidence estimation.
Procedural generation of tree models for use in computer graphics - 2017PDF
Project and associated dissertation produced for part II of the Cambridge BA course evaluating the effectiveness of
Lindenmeyer-Systems and a fully parametric approach in producing realistic 3D models of trees for CGI. Implemented
two systems in python for use with Blender, as well as an investigation of automatic design using genetic algorithms.
