Tainted reality – The incompleteness of our perceived world

On April 17, 2012, in Blog, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Research, Serious, by Amiya

Over time one thing I learned the hard way is that people can have radically different views. This is true even for the most objective of things as well as most rational people.

Lateral Inhibition: create your own optical illusions!

On October 16, 2011, in Blog, Computer Vision and IP, Entertainment, Research, Technology, by Amiya

Before I say anything about the illusion let me ask you to take a look at it. What do you see? You may be able to see something faintly if you try really hard or if you know what you are looking for. Click on the image to reveal the hidden picture. The illusion is really cool.

Solar Powered Base Stations – Future of Communication in India

On May 29, 2010, in Blog, Energy, Photovoltaics, Research, Serious, Technology, by Amiya

Open Domain Factoid Question Answering System

On June 15, 2009, in Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Research, by Amiya

This is the work done by me and my friend (Behera) as my undergraduate project. Being from the Electrical department and doing the final year project in computer science department was no easy task. Thankfully our supervisor Dr Sudeshna Sarkar was very helpful and the professors from Electrical department too ignorant to understand what I […]

Automated Mosaicing of Torn Paper Documents

On August 28, 2008, in Computer Vision and IP, Research, by Amiya

This was a joint project between me and Sukadeb for a competition held in an IEEE conference. Ideas and hints were given by Dr. Abhir (CS department Warwick Univ UK). Spend a good deal of time on it hardly realizing that we were competing against research giants like Microsoft, GE and BHEL (BHEL got the prize BTW) […]

FITS – realtime experimental tool

On October 28, 2007, in fun, Research, Soft Computing, by Amiya

FITS was a group project lead by me. It was the grand project for Soft computing course and was ranked second (The first ranked project made it to an IEEE conference and their work was based on Sai Abhidan’s seam carving techniques). The binaries won’t run on Vista or above 🙂 FITS is the ultimate […]
