A Question Answering & Quiz Generation Chatbot for Education: I, along with Aishwarya and Sreelakshmi, under the guidance of Prof. Jaya Nirmala at NIT Trichy developed a chatbot that takes in a soft copy of any text material and generates questions for testing the user in the subject matter. The user will also be able to ask questions within the context of the material and get relevant answers. We considered our target user group to be primary and middle school students. This work was published as proceedings of Grace Hopper Celebration, India (2019), where I presented our work.
Database to Animation Framework for Chemistry: I, along with Aishwarya, Srikanth and Shreya developed a Java based web application that would retrieve suitable chemical data from the database to illustrate a Chemistry concept by rendering 3D animations using three.js. This was done as part of Ekshiksha in IIT Bombay headed by Prof. D.B.Phatak & the programme was supported by National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NME-ICT), India.
Autonomous Driving Vehicles: I worked under the supervision of Prof. Sparsh Mittal at IIT Hyderabad and conducted experiments & analysis for system-level optimization of ADV algorithms for low-power embedded real-time systems, which was later presented as a poster in the Intel India Research Colloquium, 2019. I gained exposure to Computer Vision algorithms such as YOLO, and spent 2 exciting months during the remote internship.
Clustering algorithm for WSNs: I worked with Lavanya under the guidance of Prof. B. Nithya at NIT Trichy developed a cluster head selection & data communication protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks. Our algorithm, called PartyCH indicated an improvement in network lifetime by 150% and we presented our work at Delhi, in GUCON 2018.
The Shield: I worked with Vishnu to develop an Android app focusing on safety and personal protection, especially during night time. The app can be used to set repetitve "I'm safe" reminders at the time of caution. When the user does not mark herself safe within a threshold time period, the emergency contact is called. Additionally, the feature to sound an alarm can be used to draw attention. The app also comes with location services to find a friend / police nearby.
