Open Project Titles:

1. 2.5D Face Recognition using Deep Learning Face depth image can be used for occlusion presence and gender prediction by transfer learning. You will be working on the overfitting problem and how augmentation helps overcoming it. Pre-processing of the dataset would be needed for further processing. Transfer learning based state-of-the-art 2D deep learning models (eg, AlexNet, VGG16, DenseNet121, ResNet18, and SqueezeNet) can be discussed along with their architecture to solve the problem.

2. Trading Stocks Based on Financial News Using Attention Mechanism Sentiment analysis of news headlines is an important factor that investors consider when making investing decisions. The sentiment analysis of financial news headlines impacts stock market values. Hence, financial news headline data are collected along with the stock market investment data for a period of time. Using Valence Aware Dictionary and Sentiment Reasoning (VADER) for sentiment analysis, the correlation between the stock market values and sentiments in news headlines would be established.

3. Spoken Language Identification Using Deep Learning The process of detecting language from an audio clip by an unknown speaker, regardless of gender, manner of speaking, and distinct age of the speaker, is defined as spoken language identification (SLID). The considerable task is to recognize the features that can distinguish between languages clearly and efficiently.

4. Distracted Driver Detection using Learning Representations In order to lower the likelihood of accidents caused by people, many driver monitoring systems (DMSs) have been proposed. Using general models trained with the data gathered during aberrant driving, traditional DMSs concentrate on detecting specific predetermined abnormal driving behaviours, such as drowsy or distracted driving. However, it is challenging to compile enough representative training data to build universal detection models that work with all drivers. To address this issue, you will be using deep learning-based techniques.
