Talk by Prof. Kalyana Krishnan R




Professor R Kalyana Krishnan, one among the most reputed Professors of IIT Madras visited our college on 16th of September 2014. Prof. Kalyana Krishnan was retired from IIT Madras in March 2011 after a long service lasting nearly four decades. He visited our college and delivered expert talks on various engineering fields for both postgraduate and undergraduate students.

Interaction with PG students began by afternoon as per the schedule. Both the first and second year M.tech Computational Linguistics batch students attended the class. The talk was centered around text processing and various issues associated with it. After providing a short introduction on the mathematical basis provided to text processing, the discussion advanced to the much anticipated Multilingual text processing.

The question "Which is the most frequent alphabet in Malayalam text?" made us realize that we know only a little about our own mother tongue. Prof. Kalyana Krishnan also found time to compare English with Malayalam. English has only 26 alphabets compared to Malayalam, where a careful study would reveal that the actual numbers, also counting koottaksharam, are way beyond what we have imagined. This fact might bias us towards English as it is easy to learn comparatively, but this easiness comes with a cost. For all those who are familiar with language processing in English would easily find that there exist a long list of homophones that makes text to speech a tedious task in English. Prof. Kalyana Krishnan emphasized the point that no two person would pronounce the same text differently in Malayalam. That is, there exists no homophones in Malayalam, a quality that we should all be proud of. This is not incidental but rather by the design of Malayalam "Aksharas". Its meaning (not moving, stationary, non ambiguous) itself explains this fact.

Later the talk proceeded with issues regarding the character encodings in Malayalam, mostly the ones associated with Koottaksharams. Then the Professor made us realize the beauty of Malayalam and asked us to envy the expertise with which the Indian literatures were written. The beauty of Indian literature further drove the discussions towards the Rama Krishna Viloma Kavyam, a sloka build of palindromes, containing as long as 64 slokas, that depicts the chronicles of Lord Krishna when read in one direction and that of Rama when read in the opposite direction. The excellence of the epic Mahabharatha was the other interesting literary work that came into our discussion. The ancient literature in India was magnificent in many aspects like conveying more ideas in the forms of short slokas. The knowledge that every 1000th sloka in Mahabharatha had dual meanings and the reason behind it, was absolutely new to us.

The Professor, before concluding our short session, asked the students to sent a mail to his personal mail id that describes what each of us perceived from his class. This is a practice which he had always asked from his students, to make them improve the way they express themselves. Professor did also found himself time to reply and suggest some further readings to all those who mailed him their experience and what they understood from the talk.

Opportunities like this where we could share our thoughts and ideas with experts like Prof. Kalyana Krishnan comes rarely in a lifetime. We, the students of M.Tech CL is hence sincerely thankful to our department and our Head of the department for providing us such an opportunity.

Farewell


Yet another milestone was conquered by simple groups when the students of second batch (2012-14) of Computational Linguistics successfully completed their M.Tech course. It was an academically eventful period they spent at the institution. Research projects were taken up and several publications resulted from them. Workshops, expert talks etc., were organized by them. They also attended similar programs at various other institutions that brought about the sharing of knowledge. Their examination results were spectacular. Besides academics they also have a story of radiant life at the institution - a  story of friendship sprinkled with love, helping and taking care of each other.

A farewell party was organized by the junior batch (2013-15) for their outgoing seniors. The forenoon session of the function was a get-together of staff, faculty and students. First, Dr. P. C. Reghu Raj  shared his memories and experiences with the batch, gave a final word of advice for them and wished all of them all the successes in their future endeavors. Then the other staffs also recalled the times with them and gifted them with well wishes and enlightenments. The students also shared their memories in the college, and gave their feedback on the course and the institution. They had suggestions on how to further improve the system here and they also gave valuable directions to their junior batch regarding various aspects of the course and project works.

The forenoon function was concluded and a lush lunch was served. Then the students of both batches gathered for some games and other fun activities. The party was hilarious and filled with excitement. Towards the end, when everyone recollected their past days and took a trip down the memory lane it turned nostalgic and heart-warming. Thus the second batch of Computational Linguistics bid good bye to the college with a bunch of treasured memories and colourful achievements, with a promise to stay connected.

Attended International Workshop on ML and DA at Thapar University



Alen Jacob of M. Tech Computational Linguistics attended an International Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Analytics sponsored by ACM and technically sponsored by IEEE at Thapar University, Patiala from 3rd to 13th June 2014. It was a two-week summer school to promote the discovery and dissemination of high quality education and research in Machine Learning Algorithms and Data Analytics. The sessions were handled by academicians and industrialists. The workshop was intended to professionals, teachers, research scholars and software engineers.
Implementation of Machine Learning Algorithms was done using the MATLAB and Octave. Various Machine Learning techniques such as Support Vector Machines (SVM) was implemented. The hot topic in Machine Learning – Deep Learning – was introduced.

The practical sessions were more focussed into Data Analytics. The terms such as Big Data, Social Network Analysis were explained. These were done in R language, Hadoop and Gephi.
This workshop helped to gain in-depth knowledge about current trends and research areas in the fields of Machine Learning and Data Analytics.
