Research

Confidence measures for CNN classification using Gaussian processesPDF

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 classifer 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.
