Graduate Course Projects

  • Feature Mining for Similarity Search (Topics in Database Systems)  Jan - April 2015
    Finds interesting features for drawing similarities between objects. An interesting feature is an attributes value combination that is present much lower than the expectation.

  • Cooperative Game Theory for Information Diffusion (Game Theory)  Jan - April 2015
    A study of several information diffusion models and simulation of influence maximization algorithms on them. The project also introduced a new class of models named, Evolutionary Models.

  • Ensemble Learning Methods and Application on Face Detection (Machine Learning)   Jan - April 2015
    A comparative study of Bagging and AdaBoost ensemble techniques. The project also includes a face detection application built using the Viola-Jones technique (based on AdaBoost).

  • Automatic Schema Detection from SQL Query Workload (DBMS)  Aug - Dec 2014
    Detects database schema ( table-column mapping, column datatypes, Primary-Key Foreign-Key relationship and Dimension table - Fact table) from SQL query workload.

B.Tech. Major

  • Gandharv  July 2013 - May 14
