A first-year B.Tech CSE (AI & ML) student, Rishi has successfully submitted his proposal on the project, Machine Learning for Macro Diusion Indexes, and was accepted by Google Summer of Code. The annual program focuses on introducing open-source software development to the students. Along with an open-source organization students get to work on a 10-week programming project. The program was launched in 2015 and has since brought together over 16,000 students and 13,000 mentors from more than 118 countries across the world. The project submitted by Rishi aims on creating a series of potentially useful diffusion indexes and the data that may be used to construct them.
As a part of this program, the students are paired with the mentor from the participating organizations. They get to learn about real-world software development and the techniques involved in it. This year, 1292 projects for 202 open source organizations were funded by Google.
The students have to first submit a proposal on the project to the mentor organization that they would want to work with. The accepted students then work with the organization to develop the code. After ten weeks of working on the code, the students get to showcase their work for the world to see.
Rishi was guided by Dr. V. Vivek, Faculty, Department of Computer Science Engineering (AI&ML). The Faculty of Engineering and Technology, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) wishes Rishi all the success in his endeavor.
