TensorFlow is the second machine learning framework that Google created and used to design, build, and train deep learning models.You can use the TensorFlow library do to numerical computations, which in itself doesn’t seem all too special, but these computations are done with data flow graphs. In these graphs, nodes represent mathematical operations, while the edges represent the data, which usually are multidimensional data arrays or tensors, that are communicated between these edges.

SHAKTI and FinLibre – Towards self-sufficiency in compute technologies for an emerging Digital IndiaWith the advent of Digital India the need for a family of computing devices within the country is projected to see an exponential increase. This ranges from small processor cores for tiny embedded devices to large high performance processor cores for transactional and cloud based systems. The RISE Lab, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Madras conceived of the SHAKTI project in 2011 with a target to deliver indigenous commercial grade processors for our country by 2020. This talk shall outline the journey over the last 7 years and the future roadmap of the project that is driven by Digital India initiatives. The talk shall also briefly touch upon certain open source initiatives by The RISE Lab in the area of data analytics.

Erasure Coding for Big Data To ensure reliability within a data center, information pertaining to a file is stored in distributed and redundant fashion across a network of storage nodes. The amount of data housed can run into the petabytes, thereby causing the industry to increasingly turn towards erasure-correcting codes to ensure that this reliability comes with the smallest possible storage overhead. Given that the the failure of an individual storage unit is a common occurrence, there is urgent need for erasure-coding techniques that are efficient in dealing with node failure. In part response to this challenge, coding theorists have come up with two new classes of codes, namely Regenerating Codes and Codes with Locality.
This talk will provide an accessible overview of these exciting recent developments in coding theory. Several classes of codes will be presented, many of which originated within the authors research group.

Spiking Neural Networks (SNN) aspire to replicate brain-like computing. They are different from Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) a significant way i.e. the token in information exchange in the generation, communication and reception of voltage spikes in the network – akin to biology. The learning rules are also biology inspired – which depend on “local information” i.e. information that a neuron can observe around it (i.e. its own spike and that of its neighbors). SNNs do not require a global error calculation like in back propagation in ANNs – when the error of the result of the network needs to be calculated. Thus, SNNs aim to model biology to mimic biological energy efficiency and exceptional performance in hardware. In this talk, we will explore algorithms, circuits and devices from our research group that offer solutions to hardware implementations of biology.

Rapid changes enabled by technology are making it an imperative for virtually every human being to commit to lifelong learning. The growth of online courses has led to the widespread availability of high quality video lectures on practically any topic. However, much of formal learning, in educational institutions as well as corporations, makes inadequate use of these resources, and purely online learning continues to face challenges that limit its effectiveness. We describe our attempts to improve learning via a platform called VideoKen. Our platform uses novel techniques to support search and recommendation of educational videos on a given topic. It applies machine learning techniques to index videos, inspired by the analogy with text books, by automatically generating a table of contents and a glossary, and to gain insights from the learner’s interactions with the videos. We describe the need to support social learning at multiple levels, both to enable faculty to conveniently share their curated video content within and across institutes, as well as learners to curate specific video clips and share with their classmates, friends or the organization at large. We describe many outstanding challenges in creating an engaging and personalized learning experience for each learner, and describe our preliminary efforts to deal with those challenges.
