October 13, 2016 Meeting Breakdown
In our weekly research meeting we discussed preparing for our large research group presentation on the 17th. Morgan and I will prepare slides introduces ourselves, the project, and provide an overview to other researchers on the progress we have made.
In addition, we were able to talk to the main lab technician to get a dedicated computer to build our classifiers. We also switched from trying to build a haar-cascade classifier on anti-helixes to helixes. Our next objective is to find 20 positive samples from our database of a wide and narrow helix.
For research purposes we're constraining what we consider the helix to be to just the top portion of the ear. We discussed the possibility of using edge detection to distinguish between wide and narrow helixes, but for the moment we will be using visual approximations.
