The talk will start with the motivation that drives the research being conducted in the MILE lab. Then, it will focus on the work done on human-computer interface technologies and biomedical engineering, in collaboration with a number of institutions and their outreach.
The talk will also touch upon the current areas of research, namely, recognition of code-mixed Indic speech, brain-computer interface, optimizing sensory stimulation of comatose patients for rehabilitation and a planned interdisciplinary study involving systems biology, organic chemistry, epigenetics and physiology.
There will be a valuable take-home gift for everyone, which shall increase the nutrition to one’s brain!
About the speaker:
Ramakrishnan’s research focuses on real-life applications of signal processing and machine learning. As the leader of a research consortium, he was instrumental in creating handwriting recognition technologies for eight Indian languages. He received Manthan award twice for creating audio books for blind students through his OCR and TTS in Tamil and Kannada. He is also studying the neural control and physiological mechanisms behind the health and therapeutic effects of deep breathing.
For his doctoral work on evoked potentials from leprosy patients, he had received Sir Watt Kay Young Researcher’s Prize from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow.
