What I Have Done

Python Image Conversion Script

Jan 2024
I was contacted by a member of a local Historical Society with an issue regarding some image files they had created from scanned documents. The documents were scanned in 600 DPI large format TIFF, which took up approximately 29GB of storage. With their limited budget, It would be important to get the images compressed down to a reasonable size but still be usable. It would have taken weeks to manually convert or months to rescan all of the documents. I wrote a multithreaded Python script that traversed the 29GB directory and identified images with a TIFF format. The script then converted them to a JPEG image file format reducing the overall file size by approximately 66%.

AWS Deepracer

Jul 2020
AWS DeepRacer gives you an interesting and fun way to get started with reinforcement learning (RL). RL is an advanced machine learning (ML) technique that takes a very different approach to training models than other machine learning methods. Its super power is that it learns very complex behaviors without requiring any labeled training data, and can make short term decisions while optimizing for a longer term goal.
