    Vector Space Models represent words in a high dimensional space where “semantically” similar words are mapped to neighboring points. Such techniques have a long, rich history in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP), but all methods depend in some way or another on the Distributional Hypothesis, which states that words that appear in the same contexts share semantic meaning. Here we share our experience in one such Predictive model, Word2vec Skip-Gram, a particularly computationally-efficient scheme for learning word embeddings from raw text.

    The shallow neural network implementation of the model applied to a large Life Science corpus results in a Semantic Bio-Knowledge Graph of nodes (corresponding to words/phrases) and edge weights determined by metrics such as the Cosine Distance between vector pairs. We explore various properties exhibited by the Semantic Bio-Knowledge graph and highlight early results that suggest novel associations that are incipient from the data (such as between genes/diseases, drugs/genes, genes/genes etc.). In particular, the Temporal Analysis of the graph yields robust predictions of certain associations well ahead of their actual occurrence in the primary literature. We believe that a larger distributed software system, nferX, built on this model can augment knowledge synthesis and hypothesis generation in an era of exponentially growing literature.

    Lectures from 5.00-7.00 pm and Lab from 7.00-7.30 pm

    Students are expected to work on the problems and platforms at home

    Syllabus

    The course is aimed for students from various fields, who do not have prior experience in electronics or programming but are interested in developing embedded systems specific to their field of technology. This course will enable students from various Science and Engineering branches to build simple embedded systems, or effectively team up with Electronics and Computer Science engineers to build embedded systems with higher complexity.

    The following topics will be discussed:

    • Microprocessor basics
    • Introduction to programming
    • Structure of a stand-alone system
    • Programming I/O devices
    • Communication between devices
    • Communication with the external world
    • Students presentations

    Prerequisite

    None. However, exposure to some programming language will be useful. If not, the student may have to put in a extra effort to learn simple programming.

    The Symposium on Cyber Physical Systems is to bring eminent researchers in the area of CPS to Bangalore, have them interact with students and researchers from all over India, share ideas and interesting applications, and identify challenging future CPS research directions. We are organising six thematic sessions over three days. Each session will have three talks.

    The tentative sessions are:

    • CPS Applications in Autonomous Systems and Robotics
    • Control and Optimization for Smart Grids and Transportation
    • Software Engineering for CPS
    • Molecular Sensing and Machine Olfaction
    • Hybrid Systems and Control
    • CPS Security

    For more information, please visit the Symposium website.

    Registration for the workshop is not yet possible, but if you are interested in receiving an email once registration opens, please fill this form:

    Only one email will be sent and the mailing list will not be used for any other purposes.
