Spent the previous week trying to learn about and use textual inversion to teach the diffusers library to learn how to generate an image of a unicorn toy I have. I am unsure what the issue is but it does not look like the model can learn this particular inversion with 5-6 training images. In addition, I began working on a project to control another's arm using an EMG sensor connected to one's own with a TENS unit!
Started building a project to assist people in research rabbit holes and keep track of the path they have taken across paper references! Made a proof of concept in MIT App Inventor earlier this year and am now transitioning to making a more complete project using React.js.
After months of hardwork, the soundboard project has been completed! Onto testing and helping non-verbal and semi-verbal students express themselves across our high school campus :)
Learning about diffusers with fast.ai has been really interesting. Today, I tested what I'd learned by hosting a mini-lecture with some of my peers that are part of our school's Hack Club, and began to dive deeper into U-Nets and Variational Autoencoders to understand how diffusion models work under the hood. We also continued work on our soundboard!
Continued working on the soundboard today with the rest of my comp sci 3 team: a project to assist non-verbal and semi-verbal students at my school express emotions by touching an emote that is connected to a speaker to describe how they are feeling. The design is coming out really pretty. Also, continued my work on the fast.ai part 2 course!
Shipped the uil study tool on Vercel today at uil-study-tool.vercel.app (Github at github.com/Sarthak-Dayal/uil-study-tool)! There are still some optimizations I can potentially make to the model, but it works well for my current intended purpose of making my daily science UIL studying more fun. Also, began part 2 of the fast.ai course today so I can potentially build up to making an AI image upscaler to dive deeper into AI as I improve the quality of some of my profile pictures.
Started tinkering with GPT-3 with buildspace. I'm making a little UIL study tool for my team so that we can make studying more efficient and fun. Currently thinking about making the model answer in pirate voices and including other random easter eggs to make studying a little more interesting! Learned about prompt engineering as well as explored Next.js's backend serverless functions a little more.
Got done with the first week of MIT's Beaver Works Summer Institute Quantum Software course today. This is my first time ever working with Quantum Software and this has been a very fun, weird, and interesting experience so far. Today specifically, I implemented the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm and learned about quantum Oracles. Looking forward to learning a lot more over the next three weeks!
Finished building the first version of a timer, scorer, and question pdf viewer app for National Science Bowl! Check it out here: nsb-aid.vercel.app.
Started designing a personal website in :figma: for myself today!
Built a simple 2D water ripple visualizer in p5.js today!
Today I finished the first 4 introductory problems on cses.fi/problemset ! I also worked on some designs for other projects I started working on.
Finished migrating my club website over to Next.js and added some extra flavor to it.
Today I learned about chakra-ui and used it in a quick next.js project. I really love how easy and quick it is to make a website with chakra!
Implemented the coming soon page in the new Next.js version of our computer science club website.
Learned about and coded a Barnsley Fern in p5.js! Interesting to see how Math and Computer Science can create such nice pieces of art.
Got through 60% of the Khan Academy AP Calculus BC course
Started a dynamic programming course today!
Just submitted our Hack Club application! Excited and nervous to hear back!🤞
Finished the Hack Club VR workshop and began building something of my own from scratch to learn some more A-Frame basics. The VR world doesn't look particularly beautiful right now, but I am going to start building a small game with this soon.
Today I began porting our create-react-app based Computer Science Club website to Next.js. The other club leaders and I are also working on our applications for Hack Club and will send those in soon!
Built a Next.js weather and news dashboard inspired by the Hack Club Next.js dashboard workshop
Made a Neuroevolution based simulation of flappy bird today
