    Wireless Sensor Networks

    A wireless sensor network (WSN) of spatially distributed autonomous sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, pressure, etc. and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location. The more modern networks are bi-directional, also enabling control of sensor activity. Today WSN are used in many industrial and consumer applications, such as industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring, and so on. Currently 5 research scholars are working in this area.

    Big Data

    Big data is a broad term for data sets so large or complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate. Challenges include analysis, capture, curation, search, sharing, storage, transfer, visualization, and information privacy. The term often refers simply to the use of predictive analytics or other certain advanced methods to extract value from data, and seldom to a particular size of data set. Analysis of data sets can find new correlations, to "spot business trends, prevent diseases, cyber crime and so on." Scientists, practitioners of media and advertising and governments alike regularly meet difficulties with large data sets in areas including Internet search, finance and business informatics. Scientists encounter limitations in e-Science work, including meteorology, genomics, connectomics, complex physics simulations, and biological and environmental research. Currently 4 scholars are working in this area.

    Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale, similar to a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network. At the foundation of cloud computing is the broader concept of converged infrastructure and shared services. Cloud computing involves deploying groups of remote servers and software networks that allow centralized data storage and online access to computer services or resources. Clouds can be classified as public, private or hybrid. Currently 2 research scholars are working in this domain.

    Information Security

    Information security is applied to technology to protect our systems from the intruders. It is worthwhile to note that a computer does not necessarily mean a home desktop. A computer is any device with a processor and some memory. Such devices can range from non-networked standalone devices as simple as calculators, to networked mobile computing devices such as smart phones and tablet computers. IT security specialists are almost always found in any major enterprise/establishment due to the nature and value of the data within larger businesses. They are responsible for keeping all of the technology within the company secure from malicious cyber attacks that often attempt to breach into critical private information or gain control of the internal systems. Currently one scholar working in this space.

    Data Mining

    Data Mining is the process of extracting huge and useful information from large databases, an interdisciplinary subfield of computer science, is the computational process of discovering patterns in large data sets involving methods at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, and database systems. The overall goal of the data mining process is to extract information from a data set and transform it into an understandable structure for further use. Aside from the raw analysis step, it involves database and data management aspects, data pre-processing, model and inference considerations, interestingness metrics, complexity considerations, post-processing of discovered structures, visualization, and online updating. Currently 2 scholars are working in this area.

    Image Processing

    Image processing is any form of signal processing for which the input is an image, such as a photograph or video frame, the output of image processing may be either an image or a set of characteristics or parameters related to the image. Most image-processing techniques involve treating the image as a two-dimensional signal and applying standard signal-processing techniques to it. Image processing usually refers to digital image processing, but optical and analog image processing also are possible. Currently one scholar working in this space.

    Human Computer Interaction

    HCI (human-computer interaction) is the study of how people interact with computers and to what extent computers are or are not developed for successful interaction with human beings. As its name implies, HCI consists of three parts: the user, the computer itself, and the ways they work together. Users can be an individual user, a group of users working together. Different users form different conceptions or mental models about the interactions and have different ways of learning. Computers are technologies ranging from desktop computers, to large scale computer systems. Through Interaction, HCI attempts to ensure that both Users and Computers interact successfully in order to achieve a usable system. Common methods of HCI include Gesture recognition, Sign language interaction, Human pose estimation and others. Currently one scholar working in this space.
