AI Bot Chrome Extension

https://github.com/eshiofune/hoversite
An interactive Chrome extension that uses the OpenAI GPT API to summarize and answer questions on whatever web page you're on. It helps cut down time spent searching for information.

I built the entire extension from scratch and handled the prompt engineering for the GPT models. It was tested on the OpenAI GPT-3.5 Turbo and GPT-4 models. It can summarize web content, answer questions relating to the page, and direct the user to sections. It was also tested on Twitter posts, research articles, and general web pages.

Auto-generating Handwritten Text Using a GAN

https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4064782
This project provides a way of acquiring training data for handwritten text recognizers by training a generative adversarial network (GAN) to automatically generate images of handwritten text that can then be fed to the neural networks for the recognizers.

Images from the extended MNIST (EMNIST) dataset were used to train a GAN. It was then able to generate as many new images as required.

The software was built with Python, and the Keras library was used in building the neural networks.

After training for 5,000 epochs, the GAN was able to generate letters with up to 77.8% recognisability (by a human). It was also able to generate letters that were rotated and inverted, properties that are desirable for training handwriting recognizers.

DK Aromatherapy eCommerce System

http://dk-aroma.odoo.com
An eCommerce website built and integrated with an Odoo ERP system.

I handled the back end (Python-based) and ERP integration. I also led the project, designed the entire architecture, assigned tasks to two team members, and delivered the product to the client.

Coding Test Platform

A Django-based platform for administering coding tests to students, similar to HackerRank.

I designed and led the project. I also worked on the back end, where I handled the logic to retrieve questions from an API, administered tests for candidates, compiled their solutions, and compared them with the correct answers.

SMERP

An Odoo ERP product for SMEs provides them with a platform to manage their sales, inventory, purchases, and other operational data.

I worked as the lead enterprise software engineer on this project, working with the product manager and other key stakeholders. I built new requested features and helped integrate the product with external platforms to provide a complete offering for client businesses.

Soccer Playing Robots

https://journal.njtd.com.ng/index.php/njtd/article/download/839/310/4983
As part of a team, I turned three WowWee Robosapien human-like toys into robots that could play soccer.

I made use of the Python-based Robot Operating System (ROS) framework. I worked majorly on localizing the robots, using visual markers around them (like the color-coded goalposts), and on behavior control, which had to do with everything the robot did to obtain the ball and move with it and score goals.
