In a day and age where many consider deep learning an off-the-shelf solution to any and all classification/prediction problems, it's important that people examine whether their neural network models are vulnerable to targeted attacks. This project implements a framework for generating adversarial examples: input data crafted to cause the neural network to produce unexpected or targeted incorrect behavior.

Many significant works of Latin poetry follow the format of dactylic hexameter, meaning that each line is composed of some combination of six metrical feet, each of which is either two long syllables or a long syllable followed by two short syllables. Scansion is the process of identifying the pattern of syllable lengths. Through this project, I use machine learning to scan lines of Latin poetry in dactylic hexameter.

The goal of this computational project is to analyze squash game footage by tracking the ball and the movements of the players. The objectives include printing the positions of the ball and players at any specific moment and displaying the trajectories of the ball and the players. From the footage of a squash game, I am able to extract the positions of the players for all frames and the position of the ball for almost 70% of the frames.

In this project, I worked with polycubes: 3D tiles formed from a set of n cubed tiles. My goal was to write a function to calculate the number of distinct polycube forms possible given a set of n cubes and present a visual representation of the set obtained. To achieve my goal, I focused on the optimization of any algorithms used in order to handle the maximum possible value n in a reasonable time frame.

In Their Words

Anirudh Bachiraju

“Wolfram High School Summer Camp 2020 was one of the best two weeks of my life. I was able to meet with and learn from amazing peers and mentors, form invaluable friendships and accomplish more than I ever thought possible with the Wolfram Language.”

Klimentina Krstevska

“I spent the two best weeks of my life on this amazing camp learning from super-awesome pros and hanging out with cool nerds. This definitely is my favorite summer so far!”

Justin Ji

“Camp was a rollercoaster that kept on going up—amazing lectures, one-on-one meetings with Stephen Wolfram, a great learning environment and, best of all, incredible people. I came in knowing nobody and had little experience with the Wolfram Language, and I left with lifelong friends and a published project I'm proud of.”

Karan Kashyap

“My time at the Wolfram High School Summer Camp was like nothing I had ever experienced in the past. Working on complicated projects with the help of the Wolfram Language really changed my understanding of how powerful a programming language can be. My interactions with the amazing staff strengthened my own belief in the philosophy of computational thinking and what is possible in the realm of computation.”

Ying Gao

“A total blur of learning, meeting cool people, and trying again and again to tackle the code.”

Shubham Kumar

“I've had the wonderful opportunity to receive mentorship from experienced staff, network with some of the brightest students I've met and produce my best quality work. I learned how to rapidly prototype with the Wolfram Language and feel that I'm equipped with the skills necessary to apply the principles of computational thinking in any field of study.”

Betsy Li

“My experience at Mathematica Summer Camp was phenomenal because there is no other program that allows you to become part of this learning project that can teach you so much about yourself and the world.”

Taylor McCreary

“I am now convinced that everyone should use Mathematica, and I can't think of a better way to learn how to use it than this camp. I enjoyed meeting everyone as well, and the lectures were great.”
