This is an AI-based image detection/recognition project using p5 js. It is especially quite crucial in this **Covid pandemic **to detect if the person is wearing a mask or not. For making this a huge amount of users to train the software to detect a person wearing a mask and not wearing a mask.
I got my inspiration from increasing track records of covid-19 that are telecasted over the news channel and from the carelessness of citizens in this pandemic. So, I am trying to prevent the number of cases from increasing and suggest people wear masks before going to public places like Mall, park, etc.
The people are not wearing masks while going to a public place and cases are increasing day by day. So, this application that suggests people wear masks before going to public places may decrease covid cases.
Our Web application is pure beginner-friendly. It just takes a video and checks whether the person is wearing a mask or not and gives (alert) the suggestions to wear a mask if the person is not wearing a mask and vice-versa.
As I'm new to this, so it was really hard in the beginning to choose a topic, but later I learned a lot while completing this project. Like the AI and ML part of the web application was totally new for me. I have to work alone which is one of the greatest challenges for me as a beginner.
What I learned -
Through this hackathon, I learned to work alone, manage all thing needed to complete this project and know how hard is to work without a team, and handle your team.
What I aim to do next -
We are aiming to make the app more user friendly, add more features so that using this app will be a better experience for the users.
