• Shrinivas Virinchi and Pramod Y presented a paper in international conference (ICFoCS-2011) held at J N Tata auditorium, IISc Bengaluru.
• Hemanth J Gorasia and Amit Kumar mandal qualified for Finals in Karnataka States Infosys ICPC Contest
A number of conferences/workshops were conducted by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering to familiarize the faculty with the latest areas of research, so that they could pursue their own research investigations. These include: International Conference on Frontiers in Computer Science in August 2011, National Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computer Science in August 2010, Embedded Systems in August 2009, Cluster computing in August 2007 and Compiler Design in 2005. The fact that a number of internationally known researchers presented their work at these conferences/ workshops and conducted hands-on sessions, provided the necessary introduction to faculty to take up research.Some of the areas investigated at present include:
This involves developing analytic processes that are faster and more scalable than traditional data warehousing and that can extract value from the vast amounts of unstructured data produced daily by web users. The characteristics associated with Big Data analytics, include:
There are at least four major development segments that underline the diversity to be found within Big Data analytics. These segments are MapReduce, scalable database, real-time stream processing and Big Data appliance.
One of the areas investigated is the classification of meteorological data. This includes updates on the earth’s density, the movement of the wind and knowledge about rainfall. A new system is being evolved for temporal classification data that will improve the accuracy of standard classification methods. By using row images, one can make short term forecast of future position and intensities, which will be fed into numerical models to improve analysis and forecasts.
A single perfect data management solution for the cloud is yet to be designed. Different systems target different aspects in the design space, and multiple open problems still remain. On the other hand, in the domain of relational database management, an important open problem is how to make the systems elastic for effectively utilizing the available resources and minimizing the cost of operation. Furthermore, characterizing the different consistency semantics that can be provided at different scales and effective techniques for load balancing are also critical aspects of the system. Designing scalable, elastic, and autonomic multitenant database systems is another important challenge that must also be addressed. In addition, ensuring the security and privacy of the data outsourced to the cloud is also an important problem for ensuring the success of data management systems in the cloud.
A facial recognition system is an application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video source. The focus of research here is to create a method to support a robust facial recognition system, Compared with the traditional single subspace face representation, this method captures the interpersonal difference to the largest possible extent, which is crucial to distinguish between individuals. On the other hand, it throws away intrapersonal difference and noise in the input. This would improve the security systems in airports, banks, schools and colleges
Scale-invariant feature transform (or SIFT) is an algorithm in computer vision to detect and describe local features in images include object recognition, robotic mapping and navigation, image stitching, 3D modeling, gesture recognition, video tracking, and match moving. For any object in an image, interesting points on the object can be extracted to provide a "feature description" of the object. This description, extracted from a training image, can then be used to identify the object when attempting to locate the object in a test image containing many other objects. SIFT key points of objects are first extracted from a set of reference images and stored in a database. An object is recognized in a new image by individually comparing each feature from the new image to this database and finding candidate matching features based on Euclidean distance of their feature vectors. From the full set of matches, subsets of key points that agree on the object and its location, scale, and orientation in the new image are identified to filter out good matches. Finally the probability that a particular set of features indicates the presence of an object is computed, given the accuracy of fit and number of probable false matches. Object matches that pass all these tests can be identified as correct with high confidence
The GPS has performed extremely well but a number of desired and needed improvements have been identified that could be implemented with new generations of GPS replenishment and follow-on spacecraft. Research addresses the concerns, options, issues and plans for improvements to GPS and the significant performance benefits that will be available to users. Research briefly investigates the benefits and features of the combined capabilities of GPS and Galileo that may impact international users in the future. GPS has become an essential part of the navigation, positioning, surveillance and timing aspects of ground, marine, aviation and space applications. The current uses, with new ones, will continue to grow resulting in a need for even more demanding capabilities.
Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) aim at enhancing safety and efficiency in transportation systems. They comprise network nodes, that is, vehicles and road -side infrastructure units (RSUs), equipped with on - board sensory, processing, and wireless communication modules. Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) are being advocated as a means to increase road safety and driving comfort, as well as to facilitate traffic control. Among these, primarily safety will be enabled, as numerous research and development initiatives indicate by vehicles frequently beaconing their position along with warnings on their condition or environment. For example, cars can collectively sense information about traffic congestion and relay them to other cars, toll stations, or the Department of Motor vehicle (DMV) to facilitate the rerouting.
The department is associated with Atria Convergence Technologies, now know as ACT. This Bangalore based company is an Internet service provider and also a Multi-Service-Operator: MSO.
