Project Description

Exploring how paper can be used as a computing interface for future applications. Using advanced acoustic sensing methods to sense and classify interactions with paper as a medium. The project includes interesting machine learning challenges for classification of writing/drawings well as advanced algorithms for acoustic sensing. The idea is to create a paper sensor that has the same functionality as a digital touchscreen.

Pre-requisites

Software Engineering (Python, C++) Signal Processing (spectral analysis) - knowledge of acoustics is a plus Experience with machine learning (we will be using existing pipelines for training/classification) Understanding of electronics The electronics platform of the project has been already executed, most of the focus will be in writing software and building interesting applications)
