Hello! Welcome to my homepage! I am a first year Masters student at the University of Alberta.
I got My BSc in Software Engineering from the University of Isfahan with an outstanding performance
among my classmates for which I was awarded the honorary admission to MSc in AI. I have past
experience in Computer Vision, Robotics, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing. Currently,
my main interest is in the field of Reinforcement Learning and I am working in this area under
the supervision of Professor Matthew Taylor in the RLAI lab.

Projects

 Email Network Analysis: Analyzing the  internal email communication network between  employees of a company(strongly connected  components, centers, diameter, radius, etc)

  Path Construction Planning: A Python  program to determine between which cities a new  road should be constructed.

Country Prediction : A program in LISP that asks about the primary attributes like its continent, Colors included in its flag, etc of a country and tells the name of the country.

Sudoku Solver : Solving 4x4 and 9x9 Sudoku using AI algorithms such as backtracking.

 Emojifier: Adding Emojis to text messages can  make them more expressive and the goal of this  project is to add appropriate emojis to text messages automatically.

Depression Measurement : A program in LISP that can tell the user whether he is suffering from depression or not and if he is by how much. If the program recognizes that the user is very depressed it will give further advice.

Forest Cover Type Prediction: : A data mining classification problem. The goal of this project was to train a classifier that is able to classify(predict) the forest cover types for areas which were not included in its training data.

Failed Servers Detection : Using Gaussian distribution for anomaly detection in order to detect servers with unnatural behaviors in a network.

Artificial Ant with GP:I wrote the code for solving this problem and visualized the of finding the best path. You can see its video on the project's page.

Car detection with YOLO : A program with Keras and Tensorflow and the powerful YOLO model for detecting cars. Car detection can have applications in areas such as Autonomous driving.
