Project Image

We will work with the gait video data to try to detect Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and  Parkinson's disease.  We will use deep learning classification tools on key-point features extracted via Open-Pose (  The focus of the project will be to understand and optimize several PyTorch-based classification algorithms.  See for related work.
