PROJECT

Best movie gross predictor Feb 2017 - https://github.com/derekliu7/Stats-Final-Project

Find the best movie gross predictor by fitting various statistic models on the IMDB Movie Dataset.

-Exploratory data analysis(EDA), data cleaning, and feature engineering

-Used Seaborn and Matplotlib to show the feature correlation and the distribution of the sample data

-Identified the most important features by comparing the significance level of each features using an OLS model

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Statsmodels, Scipy, Seaborn

Meetup Rsvp May 2017 - https://github.com/derekliu7/DE-Final-Project

Used various technologies to build a data pipeline to consume RSVP data from the Meetup API, then applied machine learning algorithm to the data.

-Built a data pipeline by using Websocket to stream from Meetup API and store into AWS S3

-Performed real-time analysis using Kefka Spark streaming

-Classified event by its description using Multinomial Naïve Bayes algorithm

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Sklearn, Pyspark, NLTK, Websocket, AWS, Kefka

Photo Interestingness July 2017 - https://github.com/derekliu7/DL-Final

Trained a CNN model over 5000 movie screenshots to determine the interesting level of the content as it shows.

-Balanced the dataset by using SMOTE and re-weighting the classes

-Used three different pre-trained Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) models (VGG19, ResNet50, InceptionV3) to compare the results

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Sklearn, Keras, SMOTE

Amazon reviews classification Sep 2017 - https://github.com/derekliu7/NLP-Final

Used Natural Language Processing to determine whether a product has a positive rating or negative rating based on its user reviews.

-Applied regex to clean the text data

-Used TFIDF to vectorize(unigram and bigram) over 1.6 million user views

-Built a Logistic Regression model and a SGD model both with over 80% accuracy

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Sklearn, NLTK, Seaborn

Customer Lifetime Value Prediction Oct 2017

Built a Customer Lifetime Value prediction model with Multilayer Perceptron.

-Trained an Autoencoder to perform unsupervised feature engineering

-Applied different sampling methods (SMOTE, Oversampling) on the training data for model comparison

-Built a joint Multi-perceptron model by training a classification model and a regression model which outperformed the Random Forest and XGB models

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Sklearn, Redshift SQL, Keras, SMOTE, XGBoost, Scipy

Gym Crowdedness prediction Dec 2017 - https://github.com/derekliu7/TimeSeries-Analysis

Used Time Series to predict the total number of people in the next hour in a local gym.

- Feature engineering, plotting the distribution of the headcount hourly and weekly, defining the correlation between each feature

-Built an ARIMA model using the historical data which outperformed the Random Forest model with a RMSE of 8.8

Technologies: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, Sklearn, Scipy, Seaborn, Statsmodels
