Course Work & Selected Projects

Operating Systems (CSE 506)
Prof. Erez Zadok

• Configured a minimal Linux Kernel and implemented a file concatenating system call with multiple operational parameters.
• Implemented a simplified two branch version of UnionFS, a stackable unification file system, which can appear to merge the contents of different directories (branches), while keeping their physical content separate.
• Designed & implemented an asynchronous system call with focus on concurrent processing, kernel locking & efficiency and call backs.
Technology used: C

Natural Language Processing (CSE 628)
Prof. Yejin Choi

• Implemented Sentiment analysis for determining whether a hotel review is positive or negative. Achieved an accuracy of 83%.
• Designed and developed an algorithm for determination of personal traits of movie characters using the dialogs. The algorithm used only a set of function words and punctuations and improved the accuracy by 4 – 5% over a set of 18 traits.
Technologies used: Python, Java

Advanced Project in Computer Science (CSE 523)
Prof. I.V. Ramakrishnan

• Worked on Project HearSay, a system for navigating hypertext web documents via Audio for visually disabled people. It uses a Java based server and JavaScript browser extension. It creates audio browsable content for web documents using automatic semantic partition and voice XML. It is open source and multi-platform.
Technologies used: Java, JavaScript, XML

Internet Censorship (CSE 594)
Prof. Phillipa Gill

• Made a comprehensive research study about the circumvention tools like ZenMate, Hola Unblocker and MediaHint. Investigated their working, mechanisms used and also determined the level of anonymity offered by the circumvention tools.
Technology used: Python

Artificial Intelligence (CSE 537)
Prof. I.V. Ramakrishnan

• Implemented search algorithms like DFS, BFS, Uniform Cost Search, A-Star and also applied Machine Learning algorithms like MDP and Q-Learning on the famous Pacman game.
• Implemented Naïve Bayes and ID3 algorithms for classifying text-based data and used it for Optical Character Recognition. The Naïve Bayes algorithm achieved an accuracy of 74% while the decision tree algorithm achieved an accuracy of 52%.
Technologies used: Python, Prolog

Networks and Data Mining(CSE 590)
Prof. Leman Akoglu

• Designed and implemented an algorithm for predicting future search terms by mining Time Series Data.
• It extracted various features from different time series of past and present search data to establish a dependency relation between them and use it for prediction.
• The input time series were Time Series data of News Search of Google Trends from the year 2008 to 2013.
Technologies used: ‘R’ Tool for data mining, Java and MySQL

System Security (CSE 509)
Prof. Rob Johnson

• Developed a website to implement a new password technique for protection against Phishing and Rubber Hose attacks.
• This technique presents the user with a set of 12 images from which he selects 4 images in a sequence that form his password.
• These images are stored locally on user's computer which makes Phishing impossible.
• User surveys were also performed to determine the feasibility. Also prepared detailed statistics from the surveys determining which sets of images could be used for an effective password scheme.
Technologies used: PHP, JQuery, JavaScript and MySQL

Analysis of Algorithms (CSE 548)
Prof. Jie Gao

• Learned to analyse and determine the complexity of algorithms.
• Learnt various algorithmic approaches to solve a problem.

Apache Hadoop

• Realizing the need for Big Data Management in today's world, I undertook a self-learning project where I installed and Configured Hadoop for single node and multi node cluster environment.
• I also ran several jobs on the clusters using Map Reduce and HDFS.

• The critical factor about the software is that it can use any simple mobile phone or a GSM modem to send the SMSes over Bluetooth or cable connection.
Technologies used: Java, Oracle

VIOLA Test Center

• The web site, a live project, provides different kinds of online tests with results and statistics.
• It reduced the efforts of organizing staff by approximately 80% as the initial tests were paper based that had to be manually evaluated.
Technologies used: Joomla, PHP, HTML, JavaScript, CSS

Image Steganography and Compression

• Built a java based application which would hide data within an image file. The application would require a password at the time of hiding the data and also while extracting the data.
• The image file hiding the data would also be a compressed file.
Technology used: Java

Corporate Social Networking
