Digital education product that allows independent learning launched

New Delhi: A digital education product that allows students from nursery to class 12 to be independent learners through connecting themselves online has been launched.
Extramarks, a digital education solution provider launched the product 'extramarks live' that allows students to get connected online and learn with friends, mentor and teachers from home, school or anywhere.

"The product has adopted personalised learning through adaptive learning methodologies to keep the student fully engaged."
"It provides complete circle of learning, practise and test to allow a student learn at own pace and makes sure that the concepts are fully understood and validated by immersive deep learning," said a release issued by Extramarks.
The software emphasises the ability for students to be independent learners. It enables young learners to choose their own mentor, which could be a teacher, parent or a friend to help them with their studies, monitor their progress and review the results.
Users can also make their own schedules, organise their study programmes and review their performances for more effective learning outcomes.
Extramarks has implemented digital education solutions in over 5000 schools in India and abroad.

'Work hard and believe that you can make it big in IT'

You must see the larger picture, work hard and believe that you can make it big in IT, says Vishal Chalana, co-founder of a US-based IT company.

I was born in Bihar and comlpleted most of my school education in east India. Afterwards, I joined Assam Engineering College to pursue a BE (electronics and telecommunica tions). I grew up with a dream of making a career in IT; however, it was nipped in the bud, for there were no computer science courses at college. In the final year, I took up a software-relat ed project and was thrilled at its interesting outcome. But I could not fetch a job during the campus placement drive as employers thought that I was more inclined towards IT.

The search for a job took me to Delhi, where I chanced upon a write-up on optical character recognition (OCR) in Indian languages. It was similar to my software project in college. I wrote to the writer, along with the details of my project. Soon, I received a call from Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) to join the team working on OCR in Indian languages at its Pune office. The writer, an expert from C-DAC, was impressed with my project.

After working at C-DAC for two years, I joined Innomedia Software and then moved to Quark. My enriching experience at these IT organisations expanded my horizon in the field of data processing, language technology and enterprise data integration. I quit my job in 2003 and moved to the US to pursue a Master's degree. This was the time when the US was witnessing robust growth in IT products. Sensing the vast opportunity in IT products, I left my course mid-way and founded a software company, Winshuttle, along with two partners, in America. As we did not have huge capital, engineering operations in the US were making it difficult for us to sustain. I decided to design and engineer our products in India and handle sales from our US office. I returned and started operations from my house in Chandigarh.During the day, I was a software developer while at night, I was support staff. Later, I took office space at IT Park, Chandigarh, and gradually expanded my team by recruiting talent from institutions like the IITs, IIMs and NITs. Soon, our IT solutions garnered response from multinational giants. Today, we have a team of 350 people at our offices in India, US, UK, Canada, France and Germany to design enterprise software products.

Introduction to Machine Learning is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, covering a broad array of topics not usually included in introductory machine learning texts. Subjects include supervised learning; Bayesian decision theory; parametric, semiparametric, and nonparametric methods; multivariate analysis; hidden Markov models; reinforcement learning; kernel machines; graphical  models;  Bayesian  estimation;  and  statistical  testing.

Machine learning is rapidly becoming a skill that computer science students must master before graduation. This new edition of the book reflects this shift, with added support for beginners, including selected solutions for exercises and additional example data sets (with code available online). Other substantial changes include discussions of outlier detection; ranking algorithms for perceptors and support vector machines; matrix decomposition and spectral methods; distance estimation; new kernel algorithms; deep learning in multilayered perceptrons; and the nonparametric approach to Bayesian methods. All learning algorithms are explained so that students  can  easily  move  from  the  equations  in  the  book  to  a  computer  program. 

The book can be used by both advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students. It will also be of interest to professionals who are concerned with the application of machine learning methods.

“Ethem Alpaydin's Introduction to Machine Learning provides a nice blending of the topical coverage of machine learning (à la Tom Mitchell) with formal probabilistic foundations (à la Christopher Bishop). This newly updated version now introduces some of the most recent and important topics in machine learning (e.g., spectral methods, deep learning, and learning to rank) to students and researchers of this critically  important  and  expanding  field.”
—John W. Sheppard, Professor of Computer Science, Montana State University
“This volume is both a complete and accessible introduction to the machine learning world. This is a 'Swiss Army knife' book for this rapidly evolving subject. Although intended as an introduction, it will be useful not only for students but for any professional looking for a comprehensive book in this field. Newcomers will find clearly explained concepts and experts will find a source for new references and ideas.”
—Hilario Gómez-Moreno, IEEE Senior Member, University of Alcalá, Spain

Seven tricks to turn your internship into job

Seven tricks to turn your internship into job

For any student who steps in an internship programme, it is an exciting platform to let your professional senses get working. In fact, it is a great way to enter your dream career through this experience.

Crack Technical Interview Successfully...
with a NEW Book - 
By Ela Kasyap Sharma


Have you ever thought that all your steps are being watched and monitored by the office seniors?
Most of the organisations are looking for energetic candidates who can learn their system immediately. An intern is the best available source that has been trained in the office environment and is acquainted with the organisation's know- how. You just need to tap certain tips that can get you there. The time you enter the office or plan an internship make sure to do these:
Choose your future career:
Plan your internship in a way that it is also the area where you will invest as a future career option. However, any internship helps you explore. But it is advisable to put yourself where you wish to see yourself in near future.
Carry a professional attitude:
From the time you enter the office till the time of your internship, maintain a professional attitude and a dress code. Make sure that you do not carry a classroom behaviour. People at the office expect professional ethics. This simply means that they do not want you to disturb their work or tell you to mind your behavior.
Say YES to yes:
Any intern is treated a burden on a company when they have to be trained for every work. People at the office do not have the time to mind your steps. Make sure you catch the work taught in a go. Ready to submit it at the second chance. And be appreciated instantly. Always remember there is not much time to prove yourself. So, do any work that is assigned. From filling up coffee mugs  to picking up newspapers. Bigger tasks are given only when you can be trusted over small work.
Approach people/ Network:
There is a bunch of professionals working around you. Moreover, all of them can guide you well. You definitely cannot disturb them at work. But, catch them at lunch or in an elevator. Don't be shy of asking questions or noting down their contact. Also, maintain a regular touch with them over social media even after the internship.

Work besides your desk:

Not many interns do or know this. But it is a great strategy to get access to other departments besides your desk.  Keep a track of the people working around you. Their designations and work nature can help you connect. Go over their desks, whenever possible and ask if you can lend help in any way.
Time tidy:
Since the internship period is for a fixed duration and you have the same time to prove your worth. Do not take an off unless necessary. One day leave is a one day less chance to mark your presence.
A Must-Thank you-Note:   
Psychologists believe that handwritten notes are more effective as compared to typed letters. At the end of the internship, just make that psychological impact. Write a thank you note for all the guidance you went under and opportunities you look forward to connect in future. In the end, mail a cover letter mentioning your references and experience at the organization for the required vacancy. Get ready to be called for the interview and start working again.

Statistics is vital to decision making in business and our everyday lives. This book on statistics, in its Second Edition, continues to cover both the theoretical and the practical aspects of statistics which facilitate easy understanding of the fundamentals.

The book contains twenty-two chapters. It begins with an introduction of statistics and describes statistical survey and sampling methods. It then discusses collection, classification, tabulation, as well as diagrammatic and graphical presentation of data very lucidly. The book then goes on to explain measures of central tendency or averages, measures of dispersion, measures of skewness, kurtosis and moments, and correlation and regression analysis. Finally, index numbers, time series analysis, probability and theoretical distributions, along with vital and population statistics, are discussed in a clear way.
