AI Fellowship in Machine Learning

Python: + Sentiment analysis ▪ Analyzed the unbalanced Yelp review dataset using numpy, pandas, and wordcloud libraries: Yelp Review Sentiment Classifying Positive and Negative reviews ▪ Preprocessed and vectorized our text data for natural language processing using scikit-learn, spacy, and NLTK libraries ▪ Trained a sentiment analysis classifier with a logistic regression model with word embeddings (Word2vec) with 0.76 accuracy score + Text Generation Fake news ▪ Built a machine learning program with neural networks to create a language model that can generate text and learn the rules of grammar and English ▪ Encoded the text data for the language model using one hot encoding ▪ Built and trained Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) and long short-term memory (LSTM) models in deep learning from Tensorflow Keras with a loss value of 2.2 + Recognizing handwritten numbers with Neural Networks ▪ Trained a simple K-neighbors classifier with 0.931 accuracy and logistic regression classifier with 0.895 accuracy score for computer vision using scikit- learn library ▪ Built a neural network to be able to classify handwritten numbers from Tensorflow Keras ▪ Improved my model with convolutional neural networks using stochastic gradient descent and reached a 0.891 accuracy score + Drug Discovery ▪ Predicted solubility using linear regression with 0.60 R2 value and graph neural networks with 0.74 R2 value reaching close to 0.78 R2 value of trained ESOL model ▪ Identified toxicity by creating a graph neural network model and trained it for 20 epochs and by utilizing the DeepChem library ▪ Achieved a baseline accuracy of 100% minus 0.07 and an overall accuracy of 0.60 for soluble molecules + Analyzed tweets using cosine similarity in different need and resource categories from people experiencing natural disasters.

NASA Proposal Writing and Evaluation Experience Academy collaborator in team 10

• Collaborated on project ideation of Artemis mission and proposal writing as a team • Evaluated other teams’ proposals • Project accepted for prototype construction at Kennedy Space Center Learned how to effectively write a concept proposal that turns innovative ideas into a reality. To gain experience in the process of writing, reviewing, and scoring proposals through the lens of a NASA reviewer. Proposed an environmental tech idea for the sustainability of lunar surface activities during Artemis missions and I helped to develop other Artemis mission ideas.
