    NLP and Cybersecurity

    As Natural Language based communications between computers and human are gaining ground, the role of Natural Language Processing in cybersecurity is also gaining traction. While the notion of masking information in order to preserve privacy has matured considerably for structured data processing, these notions are new for Natural language based information exchange. NLP technologies like Named Entity Recognition and resolution, coreference resolution, entity linking, relation extraction etc. are essential to address these issues. On the other hand, increasing concerns with spreading of malicious information with malafide intentions is also prompting interest in language modeling tasks like detecting hidden and implicit sentiments, language identification and translation, stance and fake news detection, rumor detection, hate speech detection, clickbait detection, abuse detection etc. In this talk I will try to provide an overview of the problems and solution approaches in this fairly new yet exciting area.

    IoT Research @ SWAN Lab

    Internet of Things (IoT) is a facilitating technology that helps bridge legacy, present, and futuristic technologies towards achieving a universal, uniform, faster, and deeper technological penetration in the modern day society. Besides bridging technological divides, IoT has resulted in the development of innovative schemes, solutions, and even technologies, which fill-in the gaps arising as a result of the convergence of numerous technologies and devices into a unified platform. From a networking perspective, innovation and developments in hardware, and algorithmic schemes for addressing, device management, topology management, energy optimization, and forecasting in various cross-domain areas have resulted in the huge popularity of IoT-based systems. Domains such as healthcare, agriculture, home automation, transportation, logistics, surveillance, defence, traffic management, power distribution, and others are some of the biggest consumers of IoT and IoT-based services. As a result of the need for convergence of a wide variety of information towards a common goal, technologies such as Cloud Computing, Sensor Cloud, Big Data, Software Defined Radios and Networks, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Social Sensing, and Smartphone Computing have witnessed major developments in the recent few years. This talk will have special focus on showcasing some of the research works done by the Speaker on IoT at the SWAN Lab (http://cse.iitkgp.ac.in/~smisra/swan/) of IIT Kharagpur.

    Convergence of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for smart agriculture

    Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of interconnected things/devices which are embedded with sensors, software, network connectivity and necessary electronics that enables them to collect and exchange data. Major technologies involved with IoT are sensors, RFID (radio frequency identification), LoRa, Zigbee etc. Major objective of the IoT is connection of physical things to internet for monitoring, control, traceability and prediction. AI is mainly derived through exploration of advanced data analytics and subsequent extensive training. There are number of application areas of IoT and AI starting from environment pollution to weather forecasting and mining to smart living. India is the seventh biggest country in the world with a total land area of 3.2 million square kilometres. Average 70 per cent of the Indian population depends on farming, either directly or indirectly. Advent of latest progress in IoT and AI exhibits the forte in transformation of classical agriculture to smart agriculture in Indian context. This endeavor mainly focused on convergence of IoT and AI for smart agriculture. There are various applications of IoT and AI in agriculture sector, some of them are; agro climate prediction, weather forecasting, real time weather data dissemination, monitoring of plant health, quality estimation of agri produces, smart storage and e-auction of agri produces. More than last two decades C-DAC Kolkata is actively pursuing R&D on different technologies for smart agriculture through development of sensor based products/solutions with associated software and algorithms. This paper focuses towards the journey of C-DAC, Kolkata developed products with its underlying technologies and the application areas in Indian agriculture and environment.

    Safety Verification of Hybrid Systems

    Abstract: Systems having a mix of continuous and discrete dynamics are traditionally called hybrid systems. Recently, they are known as Cyber-Physical-Systems. In this talk, we would see simple examples of hybrid systems and means of mathematically modeling them with Hybrid Automata that enable their analysis. We then discuss an algorithm for safety verification of cyber-physical-systems using symbolic state-space exploration. Towards the end, we introduce two software tools SpaceEx and XSpeed that perform safety verification of hybrid systems and we see them in action.

    Question Answering System

    “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” Albert Einstein. The quest of looking for answers is an unending journey. Previously, we used to look for the answers in a fat encyclopedia kept in our homes or in the library. Now we search for them in the internet. In contemporary scenario where the Internet is tending to a 5G connected world, we want our answers in the snap of our fingers. Keeping this in mind we introduce you to the Question Answering Systems prevalent in today’s world of ever-growing connectivity.
