AeroCast is a web service that aims to help people find the optimal flight tickets. It predicts the most suitable purchase and departure dates of the flights based on the traveller’s time and budget constraints and it shows statistical data about the flights. By using the AeroCast, the users will be able to find the purchase dates that the prices of the flights are predicted to be the lowest. Also, the users will be able to see which departure dates are expected to have low and stable prices. AeroCast will enable the users to track their searches and it will update the forecasts for the tracked routes and flights as the new data arrives. In addition to the airfare forecasts, AeroCast will visualize the flight data on a graph where the users will be able to gain more insight about the airfares. Therefore, AeroCast Project will aim to provide an effective tool for tracking the airfares and forecasting the ideal time to purchase the tickets.

AndLit is a project which aims creating a smart earpiece which is going to have various functions based on image processing related features. The main feature which AndLit is going to have is face recognition. By taking a picture from the button in the earpiece the user will be able to recognize people's faces. If the people in front of the user is not in the database then it is saved as e new person with a name given by the user using the mic positioned in the earpiece. If the person is already in the database then the user will be listening to his/her name in his ears from the earpiece. If there are more then one person in the taken picture then the person in the middle will be selected to be processed. The face recognition process is handled in a smartphone connected to the earpiece by wireless. Also data analysis and classification is done in the smartphone. Text to speech is another feature which allows users to turn text images to voice just by taking a picture of the text. This way the users can read different stuff like books but even other texts which are readable. An interesting ability of AndLit is that it can synchronize with the social media accounts that the user possesses. This way the search is not done only through the people who are saved from the user but also for people who have social media accounts. It goes even further allowing users to share their data in a pool/network giving them the opportunity to know people who have shared their data too with the cost of being shared as well so you don't need a fresh start, just join a pool.

Augma is a mobile-app which lets you leave location based notes that come to life with the power of Augmented Reality technology. You can leave pretty much anything you want ranging from a plain text to pictures you draw. After you have left your note somewhere, other people who look through their phones cameras will be able to see your creation. These notes will be time limited and people who see these notes will be able to influence their time limits by upvoting. You can think of Augma notes like a graffiti that doesn’t get you to jail since it’s in another dimension.

Our software will generate bump and physically based rendering maps using a specifically trained neural network. It will be able to identify the topological properties of the surface, as well as the material properties using a single photograph. Our product will be the used in the server to make the required operations, and communicate with the front-end applications on various platforms. We believe our software will provide rather large benefits for the industry, as the previous solution to this kind of topographical analysis required expensive methods which require personnel with expertise, expensive equipment, and time.

Consigliere will be an iOS application that will work as a dynamic and context-aware daily planner and organizer. The user will simply need to enter whatever errands they have to run for that day and the application will provide an optimal plan for the user to complete these errands.
The optimal plan will be designed by taking the distance and traffic intensity information of the necessary roads into account. In addition, the app will estimate how much time the user will spend on an errand by analyzing the busyness of the location and the nature of the user’s task. The app will also periodically check the traffic status of the relevant roads and the crowdedness of the locations in order to update the daily plan dynamically and inform the user of the opportunities to complete their errands in a timely manner. Consigliere differs  from regular map applications and daily planners by its suggestive and dynamic nature. Regular map applications fall short at optimizing the efficient route in terms of time and distance. Similarly, regular daily planners only notify the user about the upcoming  tasks but they do not offer time minimization by means of route optimization.

The game will be developed for the gaming platform Steam and will be developed in one of the most modern and popular game engines in the market: Unity 2017 © [1]. The development of the game will include features purchased from the asset store of Unity and features that we will create from scratch. The player starts the game with their dog. They find themselves in a house with some furniture, some equipment and a few materials to start with. They have to provide themselves an environment where they can satisfy their needs and survive. Together they will make food, entertain each other, craft equipment, shop online and buy new objects to be placed or used in the house. As the game progresses, the player will improve and expand the house by buying new furniture, survival tools and materials for crafting. The number of animals in the house will increase as the player fulfills certain tasks.

With LodeStar, we aim to help people value their time which would otherwise be wasted at the gates of airports by giving them a glance of the destination airport and city. When travelling by plane, especially internationally, passengers must go to the airports early in order finish pre-flight routines. Those routines end up with a lot of freetime. During this time, the mobile application LodeStar features Virtual Reality platform and offers 360º exploring and guiding experience throughout the destination city. It shows how to navigate through the inside of destination airport, where to get a SIM card, rent a car, buy a train ticket or find a taxi and even suggests which one to pick depending on your time and money constraints. From the airport to a hotel or popular touristic stops, LodeStar provides informations, comments, suggestions that user needs during their travel. Although some of these features are available in other apps, LodeStar uniquely combines all of these features while providing VR scenery that adds to user experience. This will help users to effectively use their limited freetime in their journeys. A picture is worth a thousand words, and the 360º guides of LodeStar will outmatch popular means of written or verbal description.

Medical image analysis is widely used among doctors for the purpose of health care assistance and decision support. Many tools have been developed for the purpose of assisting doctors during the diagnosis process. These tools provide a platform for clinical doctors to analyze and visualize the conditions of their patients in much more detail. However, currently most of the medical image analysis tools require their users to download large applications in order to analyze MR images.
Medical Image Processing Online (MedIPO) is a web based application which offers their users a quick and easy way to upload, view, process and analyze MR images online. The system also offers a semi-automated segmentation tool that processes the images and highlights any abnormal mass tissue in the MR images.

XNAS(Çapraz Nakil Sistemi), is a software which will be designed to reduce the waiting time of kidney transplant patients. There is an ongoing system, which utilizes a waiting list but it may take a very long time for those in the backs of the lists. Sometimes, a relative of the patient volunteers to donate his/her kidney to the patient, but their tissue type may not be compatible. XNAS aims to collect data of these kind of patients and their relatives, from all around of Turkey, and outputs some matches where every patient gets a kidney provided that their relative participated in a donation to another patient. We will use a bipartite graph to represent patients and their relatives. Matches will be the cycles on this graph, where edges represent the compatability between a relative and a patient.
