We are extremely proud of the work our students have been doing in A4 programs. Read about some of their accomplishments here.
Rohit Jammula - Funduscopy Diagnosis
As a part of the A4 mentorship program, high school senior Rohit Jammula worked on building an empirical evaluation metric for sorting the different deep learning models in funduscopy diagnosis, i.e. to determine whether an eye is healthy or has a specific disease: glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, etc.
His work began as a project during the 2019 A4 advanced summer program, Deep Learning in Computational Biology and was developed into an expanded research effort. The paper that arose out of this mentorship, Optimal Transfer Learning Model for Binary Classification of Funduscopies through Simple Heuristics was accepted for a poster presentation at the 2019 Machine Learning in Computational Biology (MLCB) Conference, where Rohit presented this past December in Vancouver, Canada.
