During my second to last semester of college, my CIS 482 class gave me a real challenge. The college museum was interested in a program that, when given a picture of an arrow head, would classify the arrow head into various types. This seemingly simple task is very difficult to get a computer to do. Using my Image Processing skills and learning about artificial neural networks, I was able to finish AACS in a few months and, once properly trained, the program worked surprisingly well. After the semester finished, the museum liked AACS so much that they hired me to continue development. I spent my last semester reworking the neural net for greater speed and accuracy. Development continues at ISU.
