International Internships

German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Kaiserslautern, Germany
Under Professor Andreas Dengel, scientific director & head of research department “Knowledge Management” and Oleg Rostanin, Researcher, DFKI.

Integrated Sesame (an open source Java framework for storing, querying and reasoning with RDF and RDF Schema) into TEAL (Task-Embedded Adaptive Learning) project undertaken by DFKI. Improved the existing GUI to make it more user friendly with the help of "Java look and feel Graphics Repository". Also contributed in making the existing project open source. Task involved studying various license agreements and selecting the one for the project.


Institute of Electrical Engineering & Information Technology(ITEE), Australian Defense Force Academy, University of New South Wales(UNSW@ADFA), Canberra, Australia
Under Dr. Hussein A Abbass, Director, Artificial Life and Adaptive Robotics Laboratory at UNSW@ADFA.

1) Developed software for Automatic text classification using concept hierarchy derived from domain
ontology using XML, RMI, etc.

2) Developed a mobile agent (Aglets 2.0.2) framework in which mobile agents are required to collect data
from remote locations for learning at the server. The project also integrates the framework with the
existing genetic-based learning classifier system written in C++ language using Java Native Interface.


National Research Council - Institute for Information Technology(Govt. of Canada), Ottawa, Canada. Under Larry Korba, Group Leader, Information Security Group (ISG) ,NRC-IIT

Contributed to DCAM (Distributed Computer Activity Monitoring) Project. The prototype automatically discovers and analyzes social networks that are developed between individuals by monitoring computer activities in a distributed fashion. The objective of the project is Machine based determination of illegal insider or terrorist activities and Process & Activity flow management in organizations.

Some Projects Undertaken

Grid Based Data-Mining in Real-life Business Scenario with Efficient Software Management using Mobile Agents as a part of M.Tech Thesis under guidance of Prof. G.K. Sharma, IIITM.

FUZZY Data Mining tool for decision support on customer insolvency in telecommunication business
Guides: Dr. B.K.Mohanty (Indian Institute Of Management, Lucknow), Dr. R. Sahu (IIITM, Gwalior). It classifies the customers of a telecom company into potentially insolvent or solvent classes. The main challenge was to make a tool with very high accuracy for its commercial utilization. For this we have developed a new fuzzy ID3 decision tree algorithm. Tools Used: Matlab 6.1, MSACCESS.

Web-Based Management Information system (Project MISAL) developed for Dr. Reddy’s Foundation, Hyderabad. The Project aims at capturing the information from various LABS (Livelihood Advancement Business Process) Centers across the globe and analyzes data to support Decision Support in the organization.

Developed Management Information System (MIS) for CHILDLINE India foundation , Mumbai , an NGO working for the upliftment of underprivileged children. The project was in collaboration of Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Government of Maharashtra.

Network Applications: Remote Port Scanner, FTP, Remote Spell Checker, Mail Client, Chatting Client & Server in JAVA (Developed as part of the Network Management and Security course).
