If you are good at numbers, then this one is pretty much for you. Have you come across a stock market predictor before? If not, do check them out. They are known for their accuracy based on mathematical assumptions and present circumstances. You can even get to know whether your predictor works or not within no time by keeping stock prediction cycles small. There is a massive value & demand for such systems. This project will help you to make a career in finance if mathematics is your cup of tea.

4. Sentiment Predictor

Consumer behavior is something that every online business is targeting. To know how a consumer reacts to a post will better the chances of them buying a product. Artificial intelligence can be used to identify the sentiments of consumers. You can come up with a sentiment predictor that can help analyze in what state of mind the consumer is.

This project will help you create an impression among Tier-I companies. Almost every online business has started implementing this. Now is the time to showcase your skill by implementing this project and grabbing hold of the opportunity.  

5. Flower Classification using AI

If you have an idea of coming up with a facial monitoring system or retinal identification system any time in the future, you can start small by coming with a flower classification system. You may be aware that Iris flowers are of different shapes and sizes. Based on this shape, size, and color, they can be classified as Versicolor, Virginica, and Setosa.

Using AI, come up with a system that can classify these flowers easily. As we have said before, if you’re looking to build a facial or retinal recognition system, this is where you can start. There is considerable scope for such AI developers. This project will stand as a testimonial on how equipped you are.

6. Activity Recognition system

You would have already come across stuff like smart-watches, bands, etc. Did you know that they use artificial intelligence to attain accuracy in determining your heartbeat and the number of calories you have lost based on the walking you have done?  

An activity recognition system would be a good project. Analyze how the product works and build your very own smart activity recognition system with a similar kind of structure. You’ll get to learn what algorithms are used in such applications and let us tell you that you’ll enjoy the process. Initially, start with a simple algorithm; once done, do go for a complex one. There is considerable scope for such devices, so do give it a try.

7. Wine Quality Analyzer

Using a particular set of data, you can determine the quality of the wine. You might be aware of the fact that the older the wine, the better it becomes. Several considerations are to be taken into account before validating the quality of the wine. The pH content, the percentage of alcohol, the amount of acidity are some of the few criteria to be taken into consideration.

Using artificial intelligence, you can test these factors and conclude which one is the best wine. The same thing is implemented for testing the fertility of the soil by architectures using AI. You can initially start with wine to get an unobstructed exposure to how the algorithm works. You’ll find that there are more than 4000 odd sets of data that you have to consider. This project will surely hone your AI skills.

8. Object Detector  

Have you heard of the term deep neural network? Neural networks are used by top-notch companies to carry out a different set of operations like face recognition, translation, etc. The object detector is somewhat similar to the flower classification system yet a little complex. It helps you detect a particular object with the help of artificial intelligence. If you are looking to make more of an impact with your project, then this smart object detection is the one for you.

Try developing a basic algorithm structure to start with. Once you have completed, try creating one, which is more tedious. Object detection is the same method that artificially intelligent robots implement. Virtual Reality and 3D augmentation also work on the same principle. Make the best use of this opportunity to learn and to upgrade such a skill.

9. Recommender Engine

Had it ever got you thinking while watching a video or a show on YouTube or Netflix, how similar videos pop up based on your preferences. How about creating an engine that can do the same task? Based on the behavioral and implicit activity, the algorithm can decide on your preferences and show similar content. Instead of binge-watching, you could build your very own recommender engine.
