Expert locating System (ELS)
 
Project Domain / Category
Web Mining/Information Retrieval
 
Abstract / Introduction
 
In this era of Internet, World Wide Web (WWW) has become an ultimate source of information for the people from all walks of life.  Due to the big collection of non-uniform Web data, it is a challenging task for the users to find their relevant information. Finding experts who have the appropriate skills and knowledge for a specific domain, academic program and research field etc. has become an important academic activity. Expert Locating System (ELS) is very helpful for students, organizations, industries and academic institutes to find experts of their needs.  The aim of this project is to develop a web application which will facilitate students and academic institutes in finding experts of their choice. This application will act as search engine to extract faculty related information from different (at least 200) academic institutes including Universities, colleges and other Training institutes. This includes faculty name, highest qualification, expertise area, expertise type (Teaching, research, coaching etc.), experiences (in years) and affiliation(s) and store them in the database. Students are required to develop their own Web crawler for extracting these information. Students are also needed to develop an attractive user interface for entering search query and displaying query results.  
 
 
This project has the following basic modules:
      
1.    Web Crawler: 
Web search engines work by storing information about many web pages, which they retrieve from the HTML itself. These pages are retrieved by a Web crawler which is an automated Web browser which follows every link on the site. The contents of each page are then analysed to determine how it should be indexed. 
 
2.    Front end for query processing and their results: 
The front-end presents a search bar for users and the query processor parses the request and executes the search. The results are displayed by the front-end.
 
3.    Ranking of experts: 
Based on the user query, experts will be ranked in descending order. Ranking will be done on the basis of faculty total experience in their relevant domain i.e Teaching, Research and Coaching etc. The system will display only top 5 experts at a time. 
 
4.    Data base:
A database will be maintained for storing faculty information extracted by the crawler. Administrator of the Web application will run the crawler and populate the database with the updated information.

Opinion Mining for Website Evaluation
Project Domain / Category
Information Retrieval
 
Abstract / Introduction
Opinion mining  refers to the use of natural language processing, text analysis, computational linguistics and biometrics to systematically identify, extract, quantify, and study affective states (i-e the emotional states of the author or speaker) and subjective information. Sentiment analysis is widely applied to voice of the customer materials such as reviews and survey responses, online and social media.  Generally speaking, sentiment analysis aims to determine the attitude of a speaker, writer, or other subject with respect to some topic or the overall contextual polarity or emotional reaction to a document, interaction, or event. The attitude may be a judgment or evaluation, affective state, or the intended emotional communication.
 Website Evaluation system that rates the website based on the opinion of the user. Website will be evaluated based on factors such as genuineness of the website, timely delivery of the product after online transaction and support provided by the website. User will comment about the website. Based on the comment, system will rate the website. The system takes opinion of various users. Based on the opinion, the system will decide whether the website is genuine or not. The system uses opinion mining methodology in order to achieve desired functionality. We use a database of sentiment based keywords along with positivity or negativity weight in database and then based on these sentiment keywords mined in user comment is ranked. The system contains keywords related to fraud, genuineness, timely delivery of the product and service meters in the database. Based on these factors, the system will rate the website.
 
System Hierarchy:
 The user logins to the system he can view various websites posted by the admin and can comment about the website.
 User can see the comment of other user.
 System will rate the website based on the comment of various users.
 The role of the admin is to add various website to the system and to add keywords in database.
 So that system will match the comment with the keywords in database and will rate the website based on the sentiment analysis.
User can easily find out which website will deliver the product in time. And also helps to find out website which will provide good support. This application helps to find out whether the website is genuine or not that is useful for those users who do online transactions.

Comparative Study of TCP New Reno, CUBIC and BBR Congestion Control in ns-2
 
Project Domain / Category
Networking
 
Abstract / Introduction
TCP is one of the main protocols of TCP/IP Internet suite. Many popular Internet applications like World Wide Web and E-mail use TCP as their transport protocol. A good understanding of TCP can serve the bigger objective of learning how Internet communication works. Many variants of TCP protocol have been proposed over the years; the main differentiating point between each of these variants is their congestion handling. Our focus here will only be on three variants of TCP, namely: i) New Reno, ii) CUBIC, and iii) BBR. The objective of this project is to carry out comparative study and performance analysis of these three variants in network simulator ns-2. Working in ns-2 requires: i) understanding of basic commands of Linux operating systems (for ns-2 installation and running purposes), ii) good programming skills in C++ (for implementing TCP CUBIC and TCP BBR models), iii) programming in TCL (for writing simulation scripts), iv) understanding of AWK command (for trace text processing), and v) understanding GNUPLOT command (for drawing graphs). The three TCP variants will be compared on the basis of their congestion control mechanism and their performance will be analyzed using different simulation scenarios. Students may use existing ns-2 implementations of CUBIC and BBR (written by other developer hosted on sites like github.com) but it is preferred that students implement these protocols themselves.
 
Intended Outcomes
1.    A theoretical comparison of TCP variants: New Reno, CUBIC and BBR using different parameters.
2.    Performance analysis of the three TCP variants in network simulator ns-2 using different simulation scenarios.
Required Programming Skills
1.    Understanding of basic Linux commands
2.    C++, TCL, AWK and GNUPLOT (for working in ns-2)

Recognition and Authorization of Remote User & Access Provision by Admin on network
 
Project Domain / Category
Networking
 
Abstract/Introduction
There comes a conditions when Admin needs to verify the user by making a click on his image and then providing access to user if he is valid to use the system. The algorithms used for Image processing are not that good at user verification because of changed image angle, beard, facial expression, clarity and many more other factors. To achieve 100% accuracy sometimes manual recognition is needed. 
An application is proposed where a web server demands to take a photograph on requesting a session on a PC by the user. The clicked image is being transmitted to the server by the PC without utilizing much bandwidth. The image sent by user to admin may now be verified by the web server admin manually. On recognizing the user as a valid one the server machine now sends a command to client pc system in order to allow access to the system. Such remote computer authentication and authorization system is required  in secure system areas like government PC’s, military Pc’s and other sensitive company PC’s that need proper user authentication through remote admin. The web server desired to monitor and handle this system makes use of http request and response in order to interact with client machine. Web cam click of remote user is requested on any particular user as and when needed by the admin. After manual verification of image at server side, the system sends command to allow or reject user access to the user 
 
Functional Requirement
     There will be two modules i.e. Admin Module & User Module. Admin Module contains login and password.
 
Admin Module  
     The admin module dash board will have access request tab where table with “PC Name”, “MAC address” and “Status” will be given to see and check all the requests from registered PCs with their MAC addresses, So that whenever user want to access the system the request will be queued into request access module.
     Admin Panel will also have a table with registered PC drop down menu box “PC Name” & “Status” i.e. Status 1 = Image user image, Status 2= grant access, status 3= end session.
       USER panel 
     To register the system User panel will be consisted of “PC Name”, “MAC address” and Register button. Once registered there can be a button “Request access”.

Music Listening App
Project Domain / Category
Mobile Apps
Abstract / Introduction
The proposed mobile app allows users to tailor their music listening experience using the metadata. Each song has its associated metadata (for example, album of the song, year of release, genre, tempo and artist etc.). User will have to provide the metadata of a song while saving it into its music library. While listening to music, the app will automatically select the next song based on the user’s preferences (the values of metadata selected). For example, a user may select that I want to listen to fast music released in 2017 then the app will automatically select the next song that is fast and is released in the year specified. 
Functional Requirements
1.    The user will be able to add a new song to the library (in the app) by providing the following metadata regarding the song:
a.    Artist(s)
b.    Year of release
c.     Album of the song
d.    Genre
e.    Tempo 
2.    While saving a new song in the library, the user will select one or more artist(s) from a list of artists already present in the database. If the artist(s) of the song is/are not already present in the database then user will first add the artist(s) in database. Now the new artist(s) will also appear in the list and user can select it/them.
3.    While saving a new song in the library, the user will select album of the song from a list of albums already present in the database. If the album of the song is not already present in the database then user will first add the album in database. Now the new album will also appear in the list and user can select it.
4.    While saving a song, user can select one of the following as its genre: a. Rock 
b.    Folk
c.     Pop
d.    Jazz
e.    Classical
f.      Hip hop
5.    While saving a song, user can select one of the following as its tempo: a. Slow
b.    Mildly slow
c.     Moderate
d.    Slightly fast
e.    Fast
6.    While listening to the music, user must be able to select metadata values that are relative to the current song or some absolute values. 
7.    When the user selects the metadata values that are relative to the current song then he/she can select:
a.    Next song should be either of the same artist(s) or of different artist(s)
b.    Next song should be newer or older (determined by the year of release)
c.     Next song should be of the same album or from a different album
d.    Next song should be of the same genre or of a different genre
e.    Next song should be faster, slower or of the same tempo as the current song
8.    When the user selects an absolute metadata value of the song then he/she can select the exact values of:
a.    Artist(s)
b.    Year of release
c.     Album of the song
d.    Genre
e.    Tempo 
9.    The application must automatically determine the next song to be played on the basis of the metadata values selected by the user. For example if a user has selected particular values of metadata and only three songs in the library match these metadata values then the songs will be played in the following order:
a.    Song 1
b.    Song 2
c.     Song 3
After song 3, song 1 will be played again. This cycle will continue until the user changes metadata values. Tools:

Financial Helper Using QR/Barcode Scanner


Project Domain / Category
Mobile/Android based Application

Abstract/Introduction
This project will be developed to scan the QR code or a barcode through mobile and analyze
the cheapest rate of any product on various Supermarkets. This is a camera-based system to
scan the barcode behind the image and read the description of the product with the help of Id
stored in the barcode. This is very beneficial in case of finding out the description of product
among price and thus helping us in deciding to purchase a product with cheapest rate. In order
to use this system, all the user needs to do is scan the barcode on the product through mobile
phone camera and resolves the barcode to find out the Id stored. This is now easy to
implement as most of the mobile phones today have the required resolution in order to scan
the barcode to identify the Id stored in it and read out the product description. Description of
every product among its price and store’s name will be stored in the database. This project
can be implemented in any shopping mall, supermarket, Bookstores etc.

Functional Requirements:
✓ System should be able to read the barcode through mobile camera and abstract the
descriptions of product from barcode.
✓ System should able to use the mobile camera to take the picture of barcode.
✓ System should abstract the detail of product from the picture that has been taken by
mobile camera and save the description in a repository.
✓ System should compare the price of product with other prices on other store.
✓ If it finds the less price of the same product in other store, It can suggest the user to
postponed the product to buy.
