Title: Classification of text

Description: Being to automatically grade answers on tests can save a lot of time and teaching resources. But unlike a multiple-choice format where grading can be automated, the other formats involving text answers is more through in testing knowledge but still requires human evaluation and marking which is a bottleneck of teaching resources and personnel on a large scale with thousands of students. We will use classification techniques and machine learning to develop an automated way to predict the rightness of text answers with good accuracy that can be used by and suppport graders to reduce the time and manual effort needed in the grading process.

Title: The Application of Classification in Accelerated Underwriting (Insurance)

Description: Accelerated Underwriting (AUW), also called “express underwriting,” is a faster and easier process for people with good health condition to obtain life insurance. The traditional underwriting process is often painful for both customers and insurers. From the customer's perspective, they have to complete different types of questionnaires and provide different medical tests involving blood, urine, saliva and other medical results. Underwriters on the other hand have to manually go through every single policy to access the risk of each applicant. AUW allows people, who are deemed “healthy” to forgo medical exams. Since COVID-19, it has become a more concerning topic as traditional underwriting cannot be performed due to the stay-at-home order. However, this imposes a burden on the insurance company to better estimate the risk associated with less testing results.

This is where data science kicks in. With different classification methods, we can address the underwriting process’ five pain points: labor, speed, efficiency, pricing and mortality. This allows us to better estimate the risk and classify the clients for whether they are eligible for accelerated underwriting. For the final project, we use the data from one of the leading US insurers to analyze how we can classify our clients for AUW using the method of classification. We will be using factors such as health data, medical history, family history as well as insurance history to determine the eligibility.

Title: Implement and Improve CNN in Multi-Class Text Classification

Description: We are going to apply Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to classify real-world data (application to build an efficient case study interview materials classifier) and improve CNN algorithm-wise in the context of text classification, being supported with real-world data set. With the implementation of CNN, it allows us to further analyze the efficiency and practicality of the algorithm. The dataset is composed of case study HTML files containing case information that can be classified into multiple industry categories. We will implement a multi-class classification to break down the information contained in each case material into some pre-determined subcategories (eg, behavior questions, consulting questions, questions for new business/market entry, etc.). We will attempt to process the complicated data into several data types(e.g. HTML, JSON, pandas data frames, etc.) and choose the most efficient raw data processing logic based on runtime and algorithm optimization.
