Welcome to my homepage ! I am graduating with a MS from the Center for Cognitive Science, TU Kaiserslautern. As a Visiting Research Scholar at CMU’s Machine Learning Department, I recently visited Eric Xing’s lab. On this page, you can find most of my work in the field of Machine Learning and Industrial Automation / Robotics.
‘Geometric generalization based zero-shot learning’, workshop paper, International Conference on Machine Learning, Jul-2018, Sweden.
‘Generalization abilities of prevalent deep learning algorithms and the human brain’, Fechner day, Aug-2018, Germany.
Meta learning as an optimization task for deep neural networks. Github repo of some preliminary experiments here. Two papers have been accepted at ICML’18 workshop and ISP ! - Please stay tuned for more updates.
Reliability of Representational Dissimilarity Matrices (RDM) for Multi-Variate Pattern Analysis (MVPA), Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen e.V., Magdeburg.
Scientific research assistant, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Multimedia Opinion Mining (MOM), MADM group.
In the capacity of Assistant Manager, I successfully executed green-field Automation and Electrical projects for the 1.5 MTPA Integrated Steel plant units for 2 years. DCS & SCADA: ABB & SIEMENS. The units included 4.2 MW (6.6 KV) synchronous motor (Liquid Resistance Starter) and 1.1 MW induction motors (Air Circuit Breaker).
Bachelor’s project in 2011: Smart Solar Trail - the robust solar trail for extraterrestrial rovers can detect and overcome shadows that may fall on it. Though the ESST prototype might not be working smooth, we ended up having a great sense of accomplishment for having built a working model just from scratch.
I secured 95.5 percentile in the all-India-level GATE exam conducted by the IITs and the IISC.
‘Existing deep neural network methods and datasets for spatial reasoning tasks: A survey’, Carnegie Mellon University, Machine Learning lunch, February 2018.
‘Scope of Control and Instrumentation Engineering’, St. Joseph’s College of Engineering, Guest lecture, 2014. Invited by: Prof. Dr. C. Selvakumar, Head of the Department, ICE.
