HealthDESK - Using AI to ensure you are staying healthy at your desk
In order to help prevent the adverse effects of office work to people’s health, we created HealthDESK, a website that uses AI technologies and webcam data to determine and notify you when you have poor posture, and also, remind you to maintain healthy habits while sitting at your desk.
This project was submitted to HackTheLib in July 2020 and won "Most Scalable" out of 205 participants.
How We Built It
Using TensorFlow and OpenCV, we created an AI algorithm that can detect unhealthy habits that occur while sitting at your desk. The AI implements a variety of Computer Vision algorithms, such as Convolutional Neural Networks called ResNet-50 and MobileNet V2, along with a Cascade Classifier. After receiving bounding boxes and landmarks from these Computer Vision algorithms, we used mathematical computations to determine if a user is drinking water, stood up, touched their face, leaned in, and has bad posture.
