Abdulaziz, what is your professional background?
As a computer science graduate originally from Nigeria, I bring to the table a wealth of experience in the fields of artificial intelligence, software development, and cloud computing. My passion for technology has been sharpened over the past 2+ years, during which I have developed my expertise in developing and applying cutting-edge machine learning models to a variety of applications. Whether it’s in natural language processing, computer vision, or predictive modeling, I’ve consistently demonstrated my ability to deliver solutions that drive progress and make a real impact. In addition, I am a versatile developer, proficient in multiple programming languages and machine learning frameworks, which allows me to bring a unique and valuable perspective to any project.
When and how did you enter Omdena, and what was the reason?
I found out for the first time Omdena through my academic studies in computer science and artificial intelligence. I was impressed by their reputation for developing innovative solutions and their commitment to driving positive change through technology. I joined Omdena in January 2021 as a junior data scientist, looking for opportunities to expand my skills and make meaningful investments in real-world projects. The opportunity to work with a talented and dedicated team and use my knowledge to drive progress and impact was incredibly motivating and inspired me to pursue a career with Omdena.
What technical solution did you create in a recent project?
I recently had the opportunity to work on an interesting project where I built a web-based retro game for a therapeutic exercise program. Using my expertise in computer vision, machine learning, and web development, I was able to improve the game’s control system by applying a high-performance position estimation model (Mediapipe:) in a React web application. At over 15 frames per second, this solution not only improved the overall user experience, but also increased engagement.
This project was a prime example of my ability to create innovative solutions that have a positive impact. I’m proud of the work I do, and it’s a privilege to continue to use my skills and experience to make progress and make a meaningful difference through technology.
Abdulaziz participated in Omdena projects. These are some of them.
