- Sep, 2017: Our project uStash is the winner of 2017 NASSCOM IT Technical Innovation Award. Find Judge’s citation Here.
- Aug, 2017: Paper accepted in DSAA’17. With data collected during Kumamoto earthquake, we show how a spatio-temporal LSTM deep neural network outperforms existing regressive modes(i.e. ARIMA & SVR) for crowd density estimation in a highly dynamic and disruptive scenario. The result could help improve disaster management and relief.
