The Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad was established in 1999, as a center of excellence in Information Technology and allied areas. The institute was conferred "Deemed University" status by Govt. of India in the year 2000. The Institute thus became empowered to have a perpetual seal and award degrees subsequent to the conduct of its own examinations. With the passage of IIIT Bill 2014 by the Parliament of India, IIIT Allahabad, along with the other 4 MHRD funded IIITs, became an Institute of National Importance on December 1, 2014. The Institute of National Importance is a status that may be conferred to a higher education institution in India by an act of parliament. They are institutes which "serve as a pivotal player in developing highly skilled personnel within the specified region of the country/state". INIs receive special recognition and funding.The Institute was conceived with the objectives of developing professional expertise and skilled manpower in Information Technology and related areas. This will enable the country to efficiently exploit emerging opportunities and meet economic challenges being thrown up by the rapid global IT revolution which is influencing virtually every area of development and social activity. As one of the leading institutes in the area of IT, the establishment of IIIT-A, was a major step of Govt. of India towards strengthening the indigenous capability necessary for ensuring profitably and harnessing multidimensional facets of IT at all levels, and attaining expertise to enable the country to emerge as a leading player in the global arena.The institute was established by the efforts of Prof. Murli Manohar Joshi, Union Minister of Human Resource Development, GoI. Realizing the vital significance of IT in the years to come, Prof. Joshi, himself a reputed academician, was instrumental in getting the project conceived, initiated and executed in record time. The 100 acre campus, situated at Deoghat, Jhalwa was designed on the Penrose Geometry pattern and is being further topped by fine landscaping to give an all round soothing effect to create a stimulating environment to indulge in the pursuit of excellence in the field of Information Technology and Allied science. The campus is envisaged to be a fully residential one, with all its faculty, staff and students housed in different pockets. All academic and residential areas are connected to the Institutes's network. Wikipedia.

Supply chain management is a very dynamic operation research problem where one has to quickly adapt according to the changes perceived in environment in order to maximize the benefit or minimize the loss. Therefore we require a system which changes as per the changing requirements. Multi agent system technology in recent times has emerged as a possible way of efficient solution implementation for many such complex problems. Our research here focuses on building a Multi Agent System (MAS), which implements a modified version of Gravitational Search swarm intelligence Algorithm (GSA) to find out an optimal strategy in managing the demand supply chain. We target the grains distribution system among various centers of Food Corporation of India (FCI) as application domain. We assume centers with larger stocks as objects of greater mass and vice versa. Applying Newtonian law of gravity as suggested in GSA, larger objects attract objects of smaller mass towards itself, creating a virtual grain supply source. As heavier object sheds its mass by supplying some to the one in demand, it loses its gravitational pull and thus keeps the whole system of supply chain perfectly in balance. The multi agent system helps in continuous updation of the whole system with the help of autonomous agents which react to the change in environment and act accordingly. This model also reduces the communication bottleneck to greater extents. © 2012 Springer India Pvt. Ltd. Source

Inflammation | Year: 2014

The present work investigates the anti-inflammatory activity of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA) using computational and experimental analysis. The binding affinity of ALA and LA was appraised for cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1), cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2), and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) using AutoDock 4.2 and AutoDock Vina 1.1.2. Anti-inflammatory activity of ALA (2 and 4 ml/kg, i.p.) (55.65 % v/v) and LA (2 and 4 ml/kg, i.p.) (55 % v/v) was further assayed using the rat paw edema test against a variety of phlogistic agents including carrageenan, arachidonic acid, prostaglandin, and leukotriene, respectively. ALA (2 and 4 ml/kg, i.p.) and LA (2 and 4 ml/kg, i.p.) were further tested for their efficacy against complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced (0.05 ml) arthritis in albino rats. Following CFA-induced arthritis, ALA and LA were tested for their inhibitory proficiency against COX-1, COX-2, and 5-LOX in vitro. The present study commends that the anti-inflammatory potential of ALA could be attributed to COX inhibition, in particular, COX-2. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media. Source

Research on intelligent transportation systems is so far focussed on decreasing the travel time of vehicles and avoiding congestions. However, the importance of reaching on time is different for different vehicles and depends upon the purpose of the journey. In a human-operated queue, it is generally considered courteous to give priority to people running very late. They may be running late to catch a flight or may be in an emergency for a medical check-up. There is a very small discomfort to the other people as long as the number of people in an emergency and running late is low. However, such prioritization is an invaluable help to the people running late. In this paper the same behaviour is modelled, wherein the transportation system is made biased towards the vehicles on an important task and running late. The paper presents the mechanism by which a vehicle may judge its running status, decide whether to ask for cooperation and decide how much of cooperation to ask for. The vehicle lane changes and traffic lights operating policy are made cooperative. Experimental results show that such a cooperation leads to lesser number of important vehicles reaching their destinations late. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Source

Probabilistic Roadmaps are increasingly being used for robot motion planning. The method makes use of an offline construction of a roadmap. Even though the method is offline, it needs to be initially constructed as quickly as possible for an efficient and near-real time initial motion of the robot. The challenge lies in sampling of multiple narrow corridors wherein the probability of samples is very low. It is important to discover all homotopic groups very early to make good initial decisions from the roadmap. Missing out of even a single homotopic group can lead to no solution or poor solutions. The proposed method uses a multi-strategized approach for sampling of the initial points and then intelligently constructs edges between the points in a multi-strategized manner. The aim is to increase sampling at the narrow corridors and then to facilitate edge connectivity of nodes inside the corridor with the rest of the roadmap, so as to lead to the discovery of all possible homotopic groups between any pair of sources and goals. The approach results in a better performance as compared to uniform sampling and obstacle based sampling. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York Source

One of the challenging issue in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is efficiently route the multimedia information. In this letter, we propose an efficient geographic routing algorithm for multimedia data transmission such as audio, video, etc., in WSNs. It finds one near to shortest path per iteration and can be performed repeatedly iteration to find more on-demand shortest node-disjoint routing paths. This algorithm achieves high-throughput with low delay that is required for multimedia data transmission over WSNs. © 2010 IEEE. Source
