We made a small video explaining what the project is and some screenshots of what the final outcome of the project will look like. The video also gives details about our approach and the use of crowd sourcing in building our custom data set.
More details about the current work going on and the challenges we faced will be posted soon!
Please find the concept video at the below link.
The word “nerd” has been applied to those of a particularly scholarly or bookish disposition. (Generally, it’s not used in a complimentary fashion. It’s also been the name of a candy – but that’s another story altogether.) Perhaps ‘nerd-i-ness’ will get a better reputation from it being the appellation of a new item: the Nano-Electro-Robotic Device (NERD) – a robotic germ! It’s a different slant, and it comes from the University of Illinois-Chicago.
“The research is the latest entry in the first generation of bio-electromechanical devices designed to combine living organism with nonliving technology to conduct research and solve a variety of different problems by using miniature machines too small for the naked eye to see.”
