Search engines are turning out to be the greatest tools for gaining valuable data from the internet. Search engines return the search result to the user query which can be an important result or non-important result. Because, the users naturally look only at the first few pages of search results, and search engine ranking can introduce significant bias to their understanding of the internet and their information gain. When a search query is delivered to several search engines, each individual returns a list of pages based on the ranking. Scientists have confirmed that merging search results in a meta-search engine makes a substantial progress in a search result. Current meta-search engines use several search engines for fetching the results but do not emphasize on the semantic relation of the query for finding the best result. In order tod overcome this limitation, a new approach is proposed. The proposed approach can optimize meta-search results using the combination of linear search and semantic search.

Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging field, which is evolving exponentially. Its concept is to coalesce the virtual world into the real world. The augmented reality intent to enhance our perception of the real world by integrating virtual objects. The existing Augmented Reality Hand gesture control systems detect hand gesture and embed the virtual object in augmented reality using markers and motion sensing devices like Kinect. In this paper, a new Hand Gesture Control in Augmented Reality System (HGCARS) is introduced in which the gesture recognition is performed using a secondary camera and the reality is captured using an IP camera. The virtual object is inserted into the video feed obtained from an IP camera. The virtual object is controlled by using the position and depth of user's hand, measured using a simple webcam, thus reducing the cost of implementation.

Siji Rani S., Sreejith, K., and Sanker, A., “A hybrid approach for automatic document summarization”, in 2017 International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI), Udupi, India, 2017.[Abstract]


Automatic text summarization come under the domains of natural language processing, machine learning and information retrieval. As the abundance of textual information grows so does the need for summarising it. Here we consider a method for single document summarization using natural language processing tools and an extractive approach based on sentence similarity and document context. The technique uses a weighted undirected graph based scoring on paragraphs and a word frequency based scoring system on the entire document to obtain summaries. The proposed method is validated through experiments and the results are promising.

Siji Rani S. and Rajeev, R., “Colour transformation for deuteranopic viewers”, International Journal of Control Theory and Applications, vol. 9, no. 10, pp. 4527-4535, 2016.[Abstract]


Colour blindness, also known as colour vision deficiency, is the impairment of a person's ability to perceive colour differences. Most commonly, this is due to defects in one of the three retinal cones that facilitate perception of colour. The objective of this paper is to propose and implement an image processing algorithm that help red-green colour blind individuals perceive colour diversity in digital images. The algorithm is based on a modified LMS Daltonization process with Laplacian pre-processing performed before transformation to improve edge contrast as well as to accentuate and emphasize differences between adjacent shades of colours in the image. Deuteranopia has been chosen among the various forms of colour vision deficiencies as it is one of the most common types. The algorithm has been designed for deuteranopic viewers, who have anomalous vision in the medium wavelength region (green-yellow) of the visual spectrum. © International Science Press.
