In course of the research work carried out in the above-mentioned areas, our researchers felt the need to develop in-house software tools which would not only aid the specific process of scientific enquiry but also provide a generic and scalable tool.

  • FractalStudio
    Analytics with fractals In the mid 70’s when people were playing around with early versions of computers, a mathematician was plotting the results of an equation containing a complex number, in a reiterative manner.

  • Index and translation of the Mahabharata
    আমরা প্রক্ষেপবাদের নিন্দাপঙ্কে তিলক টেনে এটাই ঠিক করেছি যে, মহাভারতের একটা ‘আনকাট’ সংস্করণ আমরা তৈরি করবো এবং তা বাংলায় একটা জনবোধ্য অনুবাদও করবো। সবচেয়ে বড়ো কথা, লক্ষশ্লোকী মহাভারতের অরণ্যের মধ্যে বার বার যে হাহাকার ওঠে – শ্লোকটা তো খুঁজে পাচ্ছি না। শ্লোকের দ্বিতীয় পংক্তি মনে আছে, প্রথম পংক্তি মনে নেই – কী করে খুঁজে পাবো […] keyboard_arrow_right
  • Purankosh : an encyclopedia on the Mahabharat and the Puranas

    Communication with computing machinery has become increasingly ‘chatty’ these days: Alexa, Cortana, Siri, and many more dialogue systems have hit the consumer market on a broader basis than ever, but do any of them truly notice our emotions and react to them like a human conversational partner would? In fact, the discipline of automatically recognizing […] keyboard_arrow_right
  • TālMān – A Computational tool for Tālā detection
    In North-Indian-Music-System(NIMS), tabla is mostly used as percussive accompaniment for vocal music in polyphonic compositions like Hindi filmy music, bhajan or devotional songs etc. The human auditory system uses perceptual grouping of musical elements and easily filters the tabla component, thereby decoding prominent rhythmic features like tala, tempo or laya from a polyphonic-composition. For Western […] keyboard_arrow_right
