Cinque Terre

I am Munender Varshney, interested in teaching and contributing a good quality of Interdisciplinary research work to build a system based on Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Computer Vision and Big Data to bring significant and qualitative changes to the society. I am currently a 3rd year Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering Department at IIT Kanpur under the supervision of Prof. Vinay P. Namboodiri. Prior to this, I was doing my MS( Research) in computer vision under Prof. Renu M. Rameshan at IIT Mandi. My thesis focuses on fine-grained classification and human activity recognition using the multilayered architecture of Independent Subspace Analysis in a computationally efficient manner.

Research Interest

I am currently working in the architectural modification in a deep neural network to make them more efficient and modular for a specific task. I am also interested in and worked in the areas mentioned below.

Computer Vision

Object detection and classification

Fine grained classification

Human activity Recognition

Machine Learning

Active Learning and weak supervision

Structured Prediction and its application such as ranking

Information Reterival

IR in legal domain

IR for architectural Images
