This excerpt is based on the paper we turned in at the 35th AAAI Student Abstract and Poster Program .
In recent years, wildfire has become an unavoidable natural disaster that continues to threaten fire-prone communities. Due to the ongoing climate change, global warming, and fuel drying, the frequency of devastating wildfires increases every year . The consequences of massive wildfires are brutal. For instance, in 2003, wildfires that occurred in San Diego County burned over 376,000 acres and 3,241 households. This sums up to approximately $2.45 billion in terms of total economic costs . Traditional, physics and empirically-based wildfire…
National Football League (NFL) is the biggest sport industry in the United States. Due to its highly competitive nature, the NFL attracts a massive audience around the globe. In particular, during the Super Bowl, more than 100 million viewers watch the game and the cost of a 30-second commercial is around 5 million dollars.

In this project, we conducted a simple…
In today’s world, data is ubiquitous. The quantity of data increases exponentially, but the size of the data keeps on growing. Often, processing such big data becomes a bottleneck when running a deep learning model. For this topic, I would like to discuss how to speed up preprocessing speed by running the same task in parallel.
In this article, a brief introduction to multiprocessing is laid out, followed by a case study of implementing multiprocessing to slice a whole slide image into patches
Before I go any deeper, I would like to briefly talk about how Python manages incoming data.
