Discovering Fate

Sean Meadows

Department of Computer Science

University of Miami

Prof. MitsunoriOgihara


The book of fate

  • Astrologer Robert Cross Smith’s Book of Fate

  • Convert into web-based program/application

  • Simpler, more modern way to predict destiny

The Book of Fate


Methodology

  • Roll or given a dot pattern

  • Tables to interpret properties of figures

  • Groups of figures predict fate questions

  • Misplaced items, marriage partner, war council

Methodology


Program objective

  • Due to book difficulty, make an app

  • Proposed questions available in list form

  • Program generates figure groups, linked to answer

  • Entire process streamlined and visually pleasing

Program Objective


Implementation process

  • Program implemented in Java, web component in JSP

  • OpenCV = Open Source Computer Vision Library

  • Computer vision algorithms, C, C++, Java implemented

  • http://opencv.org/

  • http://docs.opencv.org/2.4.6/index.html

Implementation Process


Capabilities

  • Images represented as pixel matrices

  • Load, save, and manipulate images

  • Blend images, adjust picture qualities

Capabilities


Advanced capabilities

  • Image and shape creation

  • Back projection identifies similar objects

  • Template matching in images useful for pattern recognition

  • GPU-Accelerated computer vision capability

Advanced Capabilities


More capabilities

  • Included XML file input and output

  • Ability to generate text and random images

  • Open source = community support and free usage

  • *Random drawing demonstration*

More Capabilities


Current obstacles

  • Not all pages scanned from Book of Fates

  • Large image sizes and quantity

  • Few OpenCV tutorials in Java implementation

Current Obstacles


Challenges ahead

  • Plan final web application layout

  • Learn and implement XML and web integration

  • Identify database structure and usage

  • Scan/replicate image patterns and text

Challenges Ahead


Conclusion

  • Java web app using OpenCV libraries

  • Develop simpler way to (hypothetically) predict the future

  • Expecting an interesting and engaging final product

  • Excited to gain diverse knowledge/experience

Conclusion


The end

To implementation, and beyond…
