Explainable Recommendation System for Solving Review Loss

Aug 2019 - Jun 2020

  • Proposed a review-base recommender system named HANN-Plus, a hierarchical attention neural network to model user’s preference and product’s preference
  • HANN-Plus not only can provides rating prediction, but also can be used to generate the representation for making user aware of why such products are recommended.
  • Extensive experiments on real-world datasets of Amazon illustrate that HANN-Plus outperforms the state-of-the-art rating prediction methods

Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT) 

Sep 2018 ~ Jun 2019

  • Built an android application for TTCT (Thinking App), a test of creativity, originally involved simple tests of divergent thinking and other problem-solving skills
  • Host MariaDB server to query and update user data daily
  • Implemented machine learning for scoring of TTCT: fastText word embedding to initialize user’s data, k nearest neighbors to calculate the similarity between user’s data and ConceptNet from Academia Sinica

Navigation System with Multiple Feature

Sep 2016 ~ Jun 2018

  • Proposed a path planning algorithm extended from A-star algorithm with real-time traffic and turning costs
  • Host SQL server to query and update road speed data, crawling from Kaohsiung City  Government every 5 minute
  • User interface design by implementing Open Street Map API and Google Map API
