“An unexamined life is not worth living” - Plato
Hi! I am Archit, a junior at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur currently completing a BS+MS major in Mathematics and Computing with minor in Computer Science and Engineering. I’ve had stints with competetive programming and software development. Currently, I’m a perception team member at Aerial Robotics Lab, Kharagpur and an independent researcher into Reinforcement Learning and Computer Vision. I’m also collaborating at Kharagpur Learning, Imaging and Visualization Group.
Hit me up if you’ve got a cool idea regarding any of those and wish to collaborate!
Working on the GSoC Project OpenCV bindings for Julia. The goal is to create bindings that allow OpenCV to be integreated seamlessly with Julia. The binding generators are written in Python and create the wrappers automatically by reading the header files.
Developing methods to train and infer from extremely deep and sparse neural networks while preserving performance.
Working on an app using Node.JS, Express and Ionic to automatically find riders for point to point shared rides. Useful in my university as the nearest major airport is 130KM away. The biggest challenge is solving the combinatorial optimization problem of which riders to pool with as users have friend preference but want to wait as little as possible. Based on ideas rooted in a minimum spanning tree.
You can find me on codeforces as architrungta120.
Part of the only sophomore team from IIT Kharagpur to qualify for ICPC regionals in India. We were ranked 42nd in the Amritapuri Regionals and came in at 4th rank from our university.
Won 1st prize at indoor IMAV 2019, a micro aerial vehicle competition. I was involved in the finite state machine and computer vision modules. Had to write a new module that used temporary log files while our contest time was running (<5 minutes left) as the old one failed due to a race condition.
Made a glove with Shreyansh Darshan that uses IMU sensor to map the entire hand with all its motions. As a sample use, created neural networks to learn sign language symbols and interpret. The project was coded in C++ and Python. Video demonstration.
Had a run with PoW cryptocurrency miners. Wrote the first GPU miner for Keccak PoW. Collaborated with Dr. Dave Anderson from CMU to port his Linux CUDA miner for Momentum to Windows. Also wrote one of the first two Monero mining pools.
Wrote a 3D perspetive projector from scratch using C++ and Windows API as highschool senior year CS project.
Attended the Indian Informatics Olympiad Training Camp in 2017 and 2018. First participant from my state ever and the youngest one at ‘TC 2017.
Whiteboards help me think better. The bigger, the better.
I love going out for trips and exploring different cultures/environments!
Indian Food > All other cuisines. Please change my mind.
airbnb > hotels. Can’t change my mind.
Anime > everything else.
Coldplay is <3
Hopefully coming soon!
