The current projects include:

1.      Clinical Decision support system for Brain MR images

The aim of this work is to how to make use of inter and intra patient comparison for effective diagnosis process especially in medical domain. Specifically, the focus is to develop a search and retrieval mechanism for Magnetic Resonance brain images to address following questions:

a)      Is it possible to retrieve similar anatomical images from the large image database using the content of the images without using any keyword like patient id or name?

b)      Are we able to make clinical decision support system that predicts the disease class of the query image by retrieving the n images nearest to the query image from the large pool of images with the predicted disease class?


2.      Early detection of Alzheimer's Disease using Local measure on Magnetic Resonance Images

The focus of the work is to develop effective descriptors to process the Magnetic resonance brain images in order to identify minute changes before extensive damage to the brain has already occurred.


3.       Bigdata processing for Surgical video

Conventional data processing technologies are now unable to process large amount of data within a tolerable elapsed time. In this work the aim is  to process tera bytes of surgical videos based on Hadoop related technologies and cloud computing infrastructure in order  to extract meaningful information like 1) Identification of instruments-type, number, occasion of use2). Field information-a scalar measure by which focus, zoom is quantified. 3) Whether lighting is optimum. 5). Anatomic classification- whether it is possible to recognize the type of tissue 6) Extent of bleeding.


4.      Lips-Control Assistive Communication System for The Serious Disabled

In this project, the aim is to develop communication system for disabled persons in order to ease their day to day activities based on the lips movement
