Research Interest:
I work on Visual Intelligence [VI], this is an area of study that ceaselessly involves ideas from Deep Learning [DL], Artificial General Intelligence [AGI], Computer Vision [CV] and Pattern Recognition [PR]. I work on different Deep learning models specifically the ones incorporating ideas in Discriminative Modeling such as Convolutional Neural Networks, Bayesian Neural Networks, Unsupervised and Semi supervised Learning, Clustering as well as Generative Modeling such as different variants of Autoencoders and Generative Adversarial Networks. My research endeavors are focused on solving the core problems in computer vision like Semantic Segmentation, Object Detection, Instance Segmentation, Object Localization, Classification, Pose estimation, Image Captioning, Virtual Question Answering, Alternate Reality Generation. Apart from visual data, I have also been working on generating sound from silent videos using different machine learning techniques, while another project of mine aims to eliminate noise while conversing over mobile phones using deep learning.
