Projects

Machine Learning

Application of Machine Learning for predicting mortality in ICUs

2012-2013

This project aims to develop a technique for estimating the probability of patients' mortality in the Indian intensive care units. We apply different machine learning techniques (specifically, linear and non-linear logistic regression) to this problem. We also propose a boosting-style approach for predicting patient mortality rates, which automatically builds a score-based system for Indian patient data.

Program Analysis

Null Dereference Analysis in Java Programs

2012

Null derefence is a common bug in programs. This project applies the abstract interpretation framework for the analysis of null dereferences in Java programs using Soot framework.

Expert Examination System

An automated question paper generation system

2011

This project automates the question paper generation process for examinations. It covers the process of creation of questions database, selection of questions for exams meeting certain criteria and generation of encrypted paper and its decryption.

Graphics and OpenGL

Implementation of a Tetrahedral Mesh Viewer

2012

The aim of the project was to implement a basic viewer which can render tetrahedral meshes read from a file. It also supports rendering of individual meshes and group of meshes at different scaling levels.
