This year's projects include Spectrophotometer for Water Quality Sensing, Study of Cybersickness in Virtual Reality Environments, Machine Learning Approach to Large-Scale Social Media Data Analysis, Online Toxic Comment Detection, Glove for Autism Research, and more.The event will kick off with Opening Remarks from Interim Dean, Babak D.
