E-Learning Portal Implementation and Optimization
Presenter: Prajyoti Waghmare
Affiliation: Indian Institute of Technology – Student

Abstract:
Aim is to deliver an application framework and associated collaboration for research, and teaching and learning environment tools and components that are designed to work together for education course management, research support and various forms of collaboration among institutes to facilitate students. Thus providing one window access to all the education material from all participating institutes.

Bio:

Prajyoti Waghmare is a fourth year dual degree student in CSE department in IIT Kanpur. She has successfully completed independent projects in the fields of Data mining, Databases, Compilers, Operating Systems, Functional Programming and Randomized Algorithms. She was involved in a project in IIT Bombay in her 2nd year where she gained exposure to the real world application of Computer Science knowledge.

Her Internship at Yahoo Labs Bangalore during her third year gave her an opportunity to work in a corporate setting and provided first hand experiences to tackle the problems arising due to the large domain of users.

Embedded Eyes for Blind (EEB) – A Navigation Support System for the Visually Impaired
Presenter: Anuradha Awasthi – Student
Affiliation: C.S.J.M. University, Kanpur

Abstract:
We present a novel device to provide support for indoor navigation of visually impaired. The support will be provided in the form of speech. The proposed system provides the following functionalities – warning in real time about obstacles while navigation; localisation, including guidance to the user through a path to a desired location; object recognition, enabling the person to search in near vicinity for selective objects of interest.

Bio:

Anuradha Awasthi is a 3rd year undergraguate in Department of Computer Science and Engineering CSJM University (Kanpur), currently in her 5th Semester. With CGPA 9.8, Anuradha has 2nd rank in the institute. She is a budding engineer born and raised in Kanpur and strives hard to develop creative solutions for real life problems. With still a long distance to go, her main interest lies in data management, distributed computing and energy efficient data management. A big basketball fan, Anuradha is also an amateur painter.

Environment Educational Game Design
Presenter: Maya Agarwal
Affiliation: Bengal Institute of Technology – Student

Abstract:
We present a paper based on the design of a platform game, which is meant to teach the solution of problems of our environment. The area of Educational Technology is still not so developed that it is suitable for young learners. Explaining serious environmental issues to the children and young learners is very difficult through text books. An interactive technology is required for learning effectively and efficiently.

Bio:

Maya Agarwal currently working as a Gameplay Programmer at Ubisoft, Pune Studio. Completed her under graduation with Computer Science majors from West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT), India 2011. She is interested in Game Designing, Technologies in Learning and Cognitive Science. In her college days she has solved many Algorithm problems on SPOJ and Topcoder. She has also designed many games in later part of her college.

Grammar Based Generation of Random Graphs
Presenter: Anuja Ranjan
Affiliation: IIT Kanpur – Student

Abstract:
The graph programming language GP allows one to solve graph problems at a high level of abstraction with non deterministic application of graph transformation rules. Based on the GP system a novel approach for implementing a random graph generator is proposed.The generator takes as input a user-specified graph grammar and a start graph and then produces a sequence of random graphs generated by that grammar.

Image Segmentation Techniques in Brain MRI
Presenter: Preethi Sri Kennedy
Affiliation: Dr. Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology – Student

Abstract:
Medical Image Segmentation has become an important diagnostic tool in the practice of modern medicine. Segmentation of MRI Brain images is the delineation of neuro-anatomical structures as well as brain abnormalities. Segmentation of medical images is still a difficult task and fully automatic segmentation procedures are far from satisfying many realistic situations. In this paper, we discuss the development of several segmentation techniques for brain MRI highlighting the current state-of-the-art.

Improved Locality Preserving Projection: An Extension of LPP to Resolve Ambiguity Occurring in Overlapping Region
Presenter: Gitam Shikkenawis
Affiliation: DAIICT, Gandhinagar – Graduate Student

Abstract:
Locality Preserving Projection is the dimensionality reduction approach that preserves neighbourhood information and finds the intrinsic dimensionality of data. As LPP preserves the information about the nearest neighbours of data points, it may lead to miss classification in the overlapping regions of two or more classes. A new weighing scheme is proposed which also gives importance to the data points that are at a moderate distance to resolve the ambiguity.

Bio:

Gitam Shikkenawis is pursuing post graduation in Machine Intelligence specialization from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology (DAIICT), Gandhingar, Gujarat, India. She received her B.E. degree in Computer Science from G H Patel College of Engineering and Technology, V.V.Nagar, Gujarat, India in 2010. She is currently working on Face Recognition. Her area of interest is Pattern Recognition and Image Processing. She received Google India Women in Engineering Award, 2011.

IntelliShopper – A Mobile Application on Shopping
Presenter: Anuja Agrawal
Affiliation: IIT Madras – Student

Abstract:
Know anything and everything about a product, by just taking a snapshot of the barcode or the name of the product (OCR) and you will be able to research for the product, look and compare related products and make an informed decision. The “easy glossary” module helps you understand the techno mumbo jumbo. Also get suggestions based on your personal profile and past querylogs.
