Projects

Laberu : Crowdsourced Image Labeling Platform

Crowdsourced Image Labeling Platform Laberu is a crowdsourced data labeling platform that builds to accommodate and accelerate the data labeling process in the AI model development process. The platform allows the crowd to work on data labeling tasks using well-designed labeling tools, i.e., image classification, image labeling, image annotation, etc. Laberu also provides the mechanism for AI model developers to monitor the labeling tasks, verify and validate the labeling work, and report on various activities that help manage data labeling projects.

Smart UV Locker : A Smart Locker for Infection Prevention and Social Distancing Promotion

Smart UV Locker is an innovative prototype product powered by the Internet of Things technologies built for response to COVID-19 pandemics. The smart locker is designed to support collaborative use with intelligent features. One can keep the package and let another person take it by sending a one-time password to avoid direct contact and promote social distancing. The UV sterilizer helps disinfection packages arrive before the user’s hands. Users can use UVBOX mobile application to rent a locker, open a locker to store the item, and open the shared locker to get the item.

Smooth Street : Application of Machine Learning and IoT Vehicle Sensor Network for Road Surface Quality Monitoring

Smooth Street is a research project that AiiLab collaborates with Kasetsart University and is funded by the Office of The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission. This project aims to explore the efficient way for road surface survey by applying machine learning and IoT sensors on ordinary vehecle. Our machine learning model can classify and detect the damage on the road surface and report the type of damage, location, date, and time to the data platform. The data platform helps visualize the road surface condition on an interactive map and calculate the road quality for alliance smart city projects.

Tourist Activity Analysis using Instagram Data : A Case Study of Phuket

Tourist activity analysis is considered an essential process for improving product and service quality in the tourism industry. The typical methodology is conducting surveys and interviews, which requires many human resources and is time-consuming. This project has discovered the possibility of analyzing tourist activity by leveraging Instagram data, which has a wider variety and colossal volume than standard survey methodology. We have collected Instagram data related to Phuket for six months during the high-season period. The data cleaning process separates the post of local citizens from tourists and filters advertisements out from the tourism-related posts. Since Instagram data mainly contain photos rather than text, image processing and deep learning technology, i.e., object detection, are applied to extract tourism insight, which can precisely analyze tourist activity. The knowledge related to data gathering and tourist activity analysis from this project can be used in other tourist destinations and extended to the country level.
