Our group was inspired by the current COVID-19 pandemic to create a program that would protect public health. As face masks are a key part of preventing the transmission of this infectious disease, we decided to create a program that could detect if a person is wearing a face mask. We figured that our program would be especially helpful in public spaces such as grocery stores and schools in order to ensure that people are following proper safety regulations and therefore protecting the people around them.
What it does
Our program can detect if a person is or is not wearing a face mask.
What we learned
Throughout the process of creating our program, we have all learned a lot about Machine Learning.
