Research Interest

  • My area of interest is social network analysis, social Internet of things, and Deep Artificial Intelligence. I have a plan to combine different social networks and extract the essence of content flooded in it. Applying those extracted content for rapid flood inundation mapping is very helpful for the Indian Institute of remote sensing nowadays. The multi-model results social network helps in online campaigns in a rapid manner.
  • Along with that social network data, it also applied various IoT applications to make various smart city applications of IoT state and country wise. Next, implement deep AI models in various healthcare applications like eye sight prediction and walking assistive system for visually impaired people around the world. Concerning these ideas, I have a plan for publishing papers in reputed journals and filing patents related to these concepts.
