From a very young age, Anthony has always been driven to discover and invent: he first told his mother something she didn't know already at three years old. This drive to explore has led him into the sciences. For the past three years, Anthony has led his school's team in the CRC Robotics Competition. This year, the team placed third overall out of 28 high schools and colleges in the Montreal area Anthony has just been to the Weizmann institute in Israel to participate in the Shalheveth Freier physics tournament, where his team competed to open 'safes' using the principles of physics. Out of 42 international teams, our team was one of the few teams whose safe did not get cracked. Anthony is currently studying at St. George's School of Montreal, and is going to attend the Pre-University programme at Lower Canada College next year. He dreams of studying electrical engineering and computer science at MIT.

Abstract:Predictive text, a method for text imput, on cell phones suffers from two major problems; ambiguity in word choice, and lack, of a spell checker. This project aims to improve predictive texte by employing the Hidden Markov Model of language to add context-specific disambiguation and a rudimentary spell-checker.
