Amrita Students to Participate in Google Summer of Code 2022

Five students have been selected as contributors and three as mentors for Google Summer of Code 2022.

Harikrishna Pillai, an S2 AIE student, is selected into the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) and is working on building a computational tool for visualizing the 4D data derived from the surface of the axolotl embryo by mapping it into a sphere to create a 3D model.

Somnath Sharma, an S4 EAC student, will also be working under INCF to build an open-source Eye Tracker model using simple Convolutional Neural Networks. His main contribution would be to improve upon the current CNN implementation (based upon Google’s Gaze-Tracker model) and build an Android application for data collection and evaluating the model’s performance in real-time.

Akshat Tripathi, an S4 EAC student, will be working for CCExtractor Development’s Flood-Mobile app. The project’s main goal is to make the Flood-Mobile app more useful by incorporating features like adding an RSS Feed to the app, as well as filtering content features, increasing test coverage, and setting up a fast lane for easier deployments, etc.

Rishab Mudliar, an S6 CSE student, is contributing to Red Hen Labs by curating a dataset for tagging Christian Iconography using images that are already captioned by historians and proposes to use Multimodal Transformers to build an image-captioning model with the dataset that uses both the image-to-image and text-to-text interaction to generate richer captions of these paintings.

Karan Lohaan, an S6 ELC student, is contributing to INCF, working on building uncalibrated 3D reconstruction using 2D images for ellipsoidal objects.

Abhijit Ramesh and Shashank Priyadarshi are participating this year as mentors for The Mifos Initiative and Govind Goel is participating as a mentor for the Public Lab.

With our college-going offline, we have been working more enthusiastically towards reaching our goals with the constant support, guidance and blessings from our Chancellor Mata Amritanandamayi Devi.
