Undergone training and analyzed Machine Learning algorithms in the field of Data Mining and Information Retrieval.

ACADEMIC AND RESEARCH PROJECTS


Designed a Unix Kernel based Operating System WEENIX and developed fundamentals and programmed System
Calls for process creation, thread creation, scheduling mechanism, context switching, Mutex, Scheduler
functionality(Concurrency) and synchronization primitives in C.
Developed Token Bucket Emulation using Multi-threading which transmits packets controlled by a token bucket filter
using multi-threading within a single process using pthread library.
Implementation of urgent pointer in TCP to send and receive urgent data in the network.
Designed a project for sorting bank transactions using Doubly-linked Circular List in C.
Designed an Adversarial search AI agent for game playing alpha-beta pruning for faster execution of the minimax
algorithm which in turn minimizes the bad moves that can be played by the player.
Resolution AI Agent system which gets the rules of data mining and helps customers to find out if certain
information can be extracted from another set of information about the user.
Heterogeneous Multicore processors for improving the efficiency of Market basket analysis algorithm.
Parallelization using Hadoop Map Reduce and Multi node clusters to improve the performance of Email Mining
and Machine Learning algorithms. Tools used: HDFS, Apache Mahout.
Developed Database system for Automobile Sales Management using SQL, Oracle and Java.
