Senior Project Presentations
This year, due to the circumstances we are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic, CENG 416 Senior Design Project & Seminar presentations of our students will be held online. Our department has decided to combine this event with the yearly career day which was cancelled for the same reasons. We would like to invite esteemed guests both from the academia and the industry to attend the online sessions. Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A with questions from both our faculty and our guests. Additionally, for those who would like to introduce their research labs or companies to our students beforehand, we are happy to schedule online meet-up’s prior to the event day.
You can find the registration form and program details below. Once registered, you will be sent an email with the event links, participation details and the meet-up calendar link where you can reserve a slot.
Detailed Event Program
Automatic Annotation and Labeling of Fashion Images
Automatic Annotation and Labeling of Fashion Images is a research project. Visual fashion analysis is becoming more and more important in recent years for the fashion industry because of its huge potential. Main motivation of this project is predicting clothing category using VGG16 and RESNET50. In this project, as the number of classes changes, the success rates of these networks were analyzed on 2 different data sets.
Statistical Analysis of Fingerprint Images
Fingerprints are being used in several areas on the purpose of identity recognition thanks to their individuality and permanence features. In this project, it is aimed to increase the success in fingerprint recognition processes by performing statistical analysis in order to identify the low quality data in those large databases and at the same time to benefit from the distinctiveness of the high quality data.

Terms-Definitions Extractor from a Text
There are 2 phases in our thesis. 1: Definitional Sentence Analysis which we tried to decide whether a sentence has definition or not with textbook data. 2: StackExchange Answerer Analysis which we tried to create quality assessment tool for Grey Literature of Software Engineering with StackExchange users’ answers. In both phases we use natural language processing methods with supervised learning.
Solving Logic Grid Puzzles Automatically
Logic grid puzzle is a type of word problem where the task is to solve a problem in logic. Constraints for the problem are given in the form of textual clues. LGPSolver is a system that automatically solves logic grid puzzles. Better identification of comparison structures in clues and the use of a DistilBERT-based clue classification solution are the two highlights of the system. LGPSolver achieves full accuracy in sample datasets.
Efficient Implementation of Graph Coloring on GPU
The aim of this project is to implement an efficient algorithm, named as Counting-based Jones-Plassmann algorithm (CJP), for solving the graph coloring problem on GPU by utilizing its architecture. We carried out the implementation by using CUDA programming model. By realizing the CJP algorithm, we aimed to achieve high coloring speed and minimum number of colors used compared to existing graph coloring algorithms.

Prediction For Pedestrian Crosswalk Behavior
In this project, I tried to classify pedestrians whether he/she going to cross or not. To achieve this, first I detect pedestrians using a detection model and then save their behaviors in a video format. I passed this video as a parameter to another deep learning model. The second deep learning model takes this video and extract several frames from it. Then according to these frames, it classifies the behavior of pedestrians crossing or not.
