     Personally, I think some of those ideas may have some potential.
However, I am not one of the developers, so I can't speak for them. If it
turns out that they feel that these projects would not benefit Blender as
much as they hope, I would suggest that you apply to work for the Open
Source Computer Vision project. That might fit your field better, and you
might have more fun. As a fellow GSoC student. I hope this helps. And
regardless of what happens, welcome to Blender!

     God Bless,
     Gavin H.
