Faculty Name Project Name Project Detail Duration      
A V Subramanyam Visual Tracking and Person Reidentification Visual Tracking involves tracking of an object in a video by just looking at the first frame. We are using Deep Learning (DL) and Reinforcement Learning (RL) towards this task. In long term tracking, one has to re-identify a person when the person moves from one camera to another and again initialize tracker for further processing. This uses Metric Learning, DL and RL. 3 months

Piyus Kumar Kedia Optimizing garbage collection for big-data platform Modern languages guarantee memory and type safety, which is a major step towards bug-free code. However, they come with additional costs, which makes them impractical for performance sensitive workloads. One of the main reason behind these overheads is garbage collection. Garbage collection eliminates the burden of manual memory management and ensures temporal-safety. To achieve this, garbage collectors extensively use kernel memory management APIs. The garbage collection does remarkably well for applications with small memory footprint or when most of the objects have short lifetimes. However, for big-data workloads (works on GBs of data), it performs very poorly. The goal of this study is to understand the cost of memory management system call APIs and try to move them in the user-space (much like an exokernel way) for improving the performance of garbage collection. three months

Rahul Purandare Leveraging cross-language test suites for similar methods The higher objective of this work would be to leverage test suites from across libraries to test similar methods in other libraries- which may be cross language/cross-platform etc.,. For this, one requirement is to be able to automatically recognize if two methods are similar in functionality. One component of this work where the intern could work is how the method documentation could be used to compute methods' similarity. Desired skills: In Pattern recognition, Natural Language Processing, Program Synthesis(optional) 3 months
Rahul Purandare Safe operating systems for low-cost embedded devices. Low-cost wireless sensor nodes have severe storage and power constraints. Moreover, these architectures have limited support for memory management and protection. Despite these constraints, they need to provide services of a general purpose system. Because of the limited user interface, dependability is also a prime requirement. The goal of this project is to design a general-purpose OS for these platforms using a safe language, which meets the dependability requirement, while efficiently using the available resources. 3 months
Rajiv Ratn Shah Multimodal Social Media Computing With the advent of smartphones and auto-uploaders, user-generated content (e.g., tweets, photos, and videos) uploads on social media have become more numerous and asynchronous. Thus, it is difficult and time taking for users to manually search (detect) interesting events. It requires for social media companies to automatically detect events and subsequently recommend them to their users. An automatic event detection is also very useful in an efficient search and retrieval of user-generated content. Furthermore, since the number of users and events on event-based social networks (EBSN) is increasing rapidly, it is not feasible for users to manually find the personalized events of their interest. We would like to further explore events on EBSN such as Meetup for different multimedia analytics projects such as recommending events, groups, and friends to users. We would like to use Deep Neural Network (DNN) technologies due to their immense success to address these interesting problems. In recent years, advances in DNN technologies have yielded immense success in computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and speech processing. Especially, DNN has enabled significant performance boost in many visual tasks including image and video semantic classification, object detection, face matching and retrieval, text detection and recognition in natural scenes, image and video captioning, text classification, speech classification, item recommendation, and others. Recent studies confirm that DNN-based new representations contribute performance improvement in event detection and recommendation. In addition to user-generated content (e.g., tweets, photos, and videos), a significant amount of social and contextual information is available on a social media platform. Thus, the goal of this project is to explore the new directions and the technologies of DNN-based event detection and recommendation leveraging multimodal social media information. 3 months

Sanat K. Biswas Switched Mode Kalman Filter for Real-time orbit determination at High Earth Orbits For a highly non-linear system and low PDOP GNSS observations, the EKF and the Unscented type Kalman Filters provide similar accuracy. For high PDOP the Unscented type Filters provide better accuracy than the EKF. Hence, for a non-linear application with GNSS observations online switching of Kalman Filter variants based on the non-linearity and the PDOP can enable optimal use of computation resource. This can be particularly helpful for GNSS based orbit determination of spacecrafts in highly elliptical orbits. 1-2 Months
