I am a Computer Science student. I want to do an AI project for my 4th year with two other students. (It’s a 5-year degree in my university so I can pursue the same project for two consecutive years if I want to). Our knowledge in AI is very basic at this moment since we’ll be specializing in it these coming two years, so a very advanced idea will probably be hard to accomplish. We’re not expected to research new untouched soils either, so the more resources the better.
I’m interested in ideas that can benefit people and not just applying algorithms and techniques. I want to do a masters after graduation, but I’m not sure in what field yet.
I’d love to do a medical application or a project that of some use to the handicapped.
Some projects that were already pursued at the university included a project to recognize breast cancer, and to teach sign language to the deaf.
1) what other ideas we can work on in those fields?
2) how much will my choice of graduation project affect my application for a masters degree?
3) Is a stocks price prediction expert system too advanced for us?
Thanks a lot.
