Mumbai 17, 2017: Data Science has become a buzzword these days as it’s an emerging field. But still, we have a shortage in the number of the data scientist in India. There are many institutes coming up with courses in data science to improve the number. Many industries are revolutionizing solutions and projects in the field of data science.
One such organization is MUST Research Club which has presented a unique innovation “Project J+O=Y: Solving Cognitive Problems with Input as Digital Text, Image, Speech, and Sensor Data” at the Aegis Graham Bell Award Jury Round under the “Data Science” category. A set of cognitive systems is implemented and demonstrated as the project J+O=Y. The most exciting feature is the fundamental research on cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, text analytics, image processing, computer vision, audio signal processing, speech technology, embedded systems, internet of things etc. A computer-based question-answer system that can understand an arithmetic or algebraic problem stated in natural language and provide an answer or solution in real-time.
A system which can solve mathematical problems, visual puzzles like sudoku, maze or finding differences using computer vision and pattern recognition, which extracts a feature from the clicked images of newspaper cutting, identify relevant information like digits for sudoku, solves the puzzles automatically. Cognitive computing makes a new class of problems computable. These systems differ from current computing applications in that they move beyond tabulating and calculating based on pre-configured rules and programs. They can infer and even reason based on broad objectives. Project J+O=Y deciphers how the computer thinks and make AI easier with the principles. The innovativeness of J+O=Y is mainly for the features like “Adaptive”: They MUST learn as information changes, and as goals and requirements evolve. They MUST resolve ambiguity and tolerate unpredictability. They MUST be engineered to feed on dynamic data in real time; “Interactive”: They MUST interact easily with users so that those users can define their needs comfortably. They MUST interact with other processors, devices, services, as well as with people; “Iterative and Stateful”: They MUST aid in defining a problem by asking questions or finding additional source input if a problem statement is ambiguous or incomplete; “Contextual”: They MUST understand, identify, and extract contextual elements such as meaning, syntax, time, location, appropriate domain, regulation, user profile, process, task, and goal.
“The event was nicely organized by Aegis members and we were overwhelmed when met the students, faculty members, and other participants. All the jury members really liked our innovative project J+O=Y, which we are doing for the society and absolutely not for profit. All the members of MUST Research Club are a volunteer and really contributing a lot and working hard to make these things happen. This concept itself is innovative in the data science space – commented by the judges! The approach what we took for the reverse engineering and taking artificial intelligence in the grass-root level for the benefit of the mankind – was really appreciated by all the jury members and senior leaders of Aegis. We are really excited to know the final results!” – Mr. Joy Mustafi, Founder & President, MUST Research Club.
