The unbounded possibility of seeking out and the instant cognition of the result that stimulates one for farther analysis of a principle in inquiry is what I find most appealing about Computer Science. I wish to prosecute Masterss in Computer Science with an accent on Artificial Intelligence get downing autumn 2011. I am interested in deriving necessary accomplishments needed to dispute more complex jobs in order to progress our current cognition and apprehension in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Human Computer Interaction and Robotic. I believe it will besides function to give way to my end of a calling as a research professional at an academic, commercial or research-oriented organisations.
An academic wise man told me that the motives of computing machine scientific discipline pupils comprise a wide spectrum. There are those who love theoretical computing machine scientific discipline, and those who romance the codification. Then there are those who see the survey of computing machine scientific discipline as a manner to larn how to formalise and implement solutions to a broad assortment of jobs outside of the field. I place myself steadfastly on this terminal of the spectrum. Formal theory may organize a necessary foundation for my work and supply valuable penetrations and intuitions about how to travel about work outing a job, but my passion lies in developing package to research my wonder about the nature of the head and the bounds of unreal intelligence. The inquiry of whether or non we reach the point where I can sit down at a terminus and flog up a new psyche may stay unreciprocated, but I continue to be fascinated by even the currently-possible in unreal intelligence.
In 6th class, I started larning Qbasic linguistic communication and fulfilled my wish to compose my ain plan. I extended my cognition by composing simple games and work outing mathematical illustrations by programming. I would jab around showing every event and procedure about me as a series of consecutive stairss. A love for logic, combined with a bent of work outing mystifiers, has about embedded the thought of algorithms a portion of my subconscious thought procedure.
I was the highest scorer in high-school with a centum in Mathematics and topped the school in Computer Science. The two old ages spent in readying for the assorted Indian technology entryway scrutinies provided way to my childhood involvements. Exposed to diverse subjects in basic scientific discipline and math, I enjoyed work outing disputing jobs in concretion, geometry, circuit analysis and electromagnetism. After puting in the top 2 per centum of 0.3 million pupils from across the state, I went on to take up Computer Science at the undergraduate degree.
Learning by making and, examining by inquiring, has ever been my attack to instruction, right from simple boulder clay my under-graduate school. Courses like Data Structures and Algorithms, Operating Systems, Digital Electronics, Computer Organization Compiler Construction, Theory of Computation, Microcontroller Programming and Artificial Intelligence, non merely groomed my passion for logic but besides made me recognize the importance of doggedness and focal point required while prosecuting theoretical topics. While prosecuting my undergraduate surveies, I was exposed to the astonishing universe of Natural Language Processing when I was working on a Spell Checker and Dictionary Engine for my undertaking as portion of Object Oriented Programming class.
My concluding twelvemonth undertaking was a Concept Logic Builder utilizing Natural Language Processing. I implemented it in C # with the SharpNLP library and in Python utilizing the NTLK toolkit. The undertaking exposed a novel agencies by which human ideas and constructs in written signifier can be reconstructed, retrieved and manipulated automatically by a package in such a manner that the original significance is non lost. It works by traveling beyond the bantam signifier of natural linguistic communication apprehension that limits itself to word-spotting or a superficial association of semantic blocks, and attempts to mime the maps of the human encephalon in its processing and result. While working on this undertaking, I have been introduced to the procedure of carry oning and working in research undertakings, from reading documents with a critical oculus and showing to equals, to finishing deadlines and composing documents. Furthermore this enterprise has surely strengthened my strong belief to prosecute in active research in Artificial Intelligence and related Fieldss.
Apart from my focal point country, I have ever participated enthusiastically and actively in extra-curricular activities. As a member of the Planning Committee for my college ‘s proficient festival, I was besides able to construct my leading and teamwork accomplishments. From my sophomore twelvemonth, I had involved myself in composing for Digit- the most widely distributed Technology Magazine in India. By working along with analyzing in undergraduate plan, I learned how to pull off clip and keep a balance between courseworks and occupation undertakings. Besides, it gave me an first-class chance to research into the latest and approaching appliances and package merchandises. During my current Internship at HP where I am working on Windows Azure Cloud-Computing model, I would wish to broaden my position on existent universe engineering issues, jobs and originative attacks to work outing them.
My aim as an MS pupil would be to overcome my logic and intelligence to develop systems that can believe and larn like worlds. A success in this will intend a definite alteration in the manner most computing devices work at present. I believe that doing bing systems develop intelligence by larning on their ain is an highly powerful proposition that would organize the nucleus paradigm of this ambitious kingdom of Computer Science.
University of Arizona, I believe, offers a contributing environment for alumnus surveies that is ideally suited for my research ends and work moralss. I am certain that with the reputed module my journey through the MS grade would non merely be speculative and experimental but besides intellectually enriching. As a pupil with exposure to a assortment of state of affairss and the ability to walk out as a victor are my biggest assets. The virtuousnesss of ne’er giving up and larning from every state of affairs have been my best comrades through both good and tough times. This, backed with a finding and willingness to walk that excess stat mi, will assist me strive to the best of my abilities to transcend the high criterions of the University of Arizona. Sharing the phase with the best and the brightest person from all around the universe and interaction with the pupil organic structure promises to be an enriching experience for me. I am aroused and confident to do a important part to the Department of Computer Science as a alumnus Student.
I would wish to stop by stating that that I am to the full cognizant that a calling in research and faculty members requires a high degree of intelligence, firm dedication and a batch of forfeit. I am confident that I would run into all the above demands, and therefore I appeal to the Graduate Admissions Committee to see me for admittance.
