RESEARCH & COURSE PROJECTS
• AUTOMATIC SERVICE COMPOSITION OF DAML-S SERVICES
Designed and built the first planner based composition engine for service described in DAML-S. Composition engine uses a backward chaining planning algorithm.
• COLLABORATIVE P2P PERSONAL AGENT ARCHITECTURE
Investigating the use of DAML and other semantic languages to communicate and collaborate with heterogeneous agents and information sources.
• LUDaP: Layering Using Data Persistence
Proposed a methodology for building layered reasoning systems. A new architecture was built and implemented as a control system for a robot. Implementation was done on Teambots © robot simulator.
• DAML Query Language (DQL)
Design and implementation of a mechanism for querying knowledge bases of agents. FIPA ACL was used as the interaction protocol and DQL was used as the query description language.
• LIGHT-WEIGHT QUERY EXPANSION USING RELEVANCE FEEDBACK
Designed a complete IR system that supports online queries and hot-updates. Implemented a keyword extraction based lightweight query expansion system. The prototype was implemented as a plug-in for the Mozilla/Netscape browser.
• CHARACTER RECOGNITION USING NEURAL NETWORKS (Lisp, Java: 2 weeks)
Developed a forward-feed neural network, with back-propagation in Lisp. This Neural Network constituted the main recognition engine. The characters can be written using a mouse on a grid like interface implemented in Java.
• NAMED ENTITY RECOGNITION IN FREE TEXT
Implemented a system with a small set of heuristics that extracted proper nouns that are references to people. Captured names were stored in a normalized form with details like designation and salutation.
• COLLECTION FUSION FOR CARROT2
Proposed a technique to fuse results in Carrot2, a distributed agent-based IR system being developed at Center for Architectures for Data-Driven Information Processing, UMBC.
• CALLER-ID BASED POP-UP DATABASE (C, VB6, Oracle: 6 months)
Integrated an 8870 decoder, CPU and an ePABX card. The caller is automatically routed to the most likely
contact and business information related to the caller is displayed at the call-receiver's terminal.
• DIGIBILL (Java, jsp, Oracle: 2 months)
Designed and developed an invoice querying system for G.E.-Supply. This application made use of data from an IDMS as well as an Oracle database. The MQSeries was used to obtain data from mainframe.
• PROJECT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (Java, jsp, Oracle: 3 months)
Implemented a web-based version of the GE-Supply XPD2 (mainframe application) system.
• ONLINE FORM PROCESSING (Java, jsp, Oracle, html: 3 weeks)
Automated all HR related forms in PCS Ltd. This was a fast-track project implemented in 3 weeks.
