A Study on State Of Earnings Management in India: An Empirical Analysis

(Oct 2014 - Jun 2015)

In an attempt to understand the quality of reported earnings, the study sees the earnings management levels across various sectors. Using residuals obtained from a linear regression based model of reported earnings, the study attempts to understand the state of earnings management in India for a period of four years (2010-2013) across different sectors. As a final step, model based clustering is used to cluster the worst offending sectors/companies according to deviations from acceptable earnings management

Using Black Box methods to identify and resolve Inefficiencies in commodity supply chains

(Aug 2014 - Jan 2015)

Building smart decision systems to remove inefficient utilization of food supply chains by commodity based clustering  of  geo-economic space. Self Organizing Maps (SOMs) were used to identify "hotspots" of demand and supply and build a robust supply network.

Identification of Higgs-Boson using ATLAS experiment data

(May 2014 - Jul 2014)

Application of advanced machine learning methods to improve the discovery significance of the experiment. Using simulated data with features characterizing events detected by ATLAS, to classify events into "tau tau decay of a Higgs boson" versus "background." (Available on demand)
