Shafin Haque

Hi! I'm Shafin, a 18 y/o at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS).

I'm interested in machine learning and computer vision. This past summer I interned for Invisible AI's machine learning team, where I built deep learning computer vision systems for improving automotive manufacturing lines.

Previously, I was researching for the the Vision Research Lab at UC Santa Barbara, working on objection detection methods for ROV marine data.

Check out my work and experience on this page, and feel free to reach out!

Box Prediction Rebalancing for Training Single-Stage Object Detectors with Partially Labeled Data
Shafin Haque, R. Austin McEver
NeurIPS Workshop (NeurIPS LMRL), 2022
Paper  / Poster

We propose Box Prediction Rebalancing for single-stage object detectors to combat the challenge of learning from partially annotated datasets. By randomly removing percentages of negative predictions from our model's loss computation, our model performs better as it learns less from false positives which may be true species of interest without ground truth.

Experience
Machine Learning Engineering Intern February 2023 - August 2023
Invisible AI
  • Developed custom few-shot deep learning model for semantic segmentation of workpiece objects in automotive manufacturing lines. Trained segmentation model with only 15 images per camera site.
  • Created light-weight single-shot detector head using residual skip connections from existing production pose estimation model as the backbone to detect worker faces for face blurring in live cameras.
Research Intern at UCSB March 2022 - December 2022
Vision Research Lab
  • Worked with MARE Group to develop dataset for streamlining identification and counting process of marine species in underwater ROV videos. Researched novel object detection methods to improve performances on our dataset.
  • Wrote extended abstract accepted to NeurIPS LMLR proposing novel bounding box prediction rebalancing method for single-stage object detectors such as YOLO to improve learning from partially labeled datasets.
  • Also contributed to research paper accepted to International Journal of Computer Vision and CVPR Workshop.
Research Assistant at Stanford December 2021 - March 2022
Quanitative Imaging and Artificial Intelligence Lab
  • Researched the application of federated learning in medical imaging in order to improve security and accuracy of 2D and 3D segmentation of multi-organ and tumor abdominal CT scans.
Machine Learning Intern June 2021 - December 2021
Tech for Good Inc
  • Programmed deep learning models in TensorFlow and PyTorch to detect distracted/impaired drivers in images and video.
  • Used custom and pre-trained CNNs to reach an accuracy of 99% for distinguishing between multiple classes of distracted and non distracted driving. Also tested with CNN-RNN architecture for video classification.
  • Lead computer vision team on the project by overseeing all team operations and holding meetings. Lead collaboration with software engineering team to develop mobile application using Flutter.
