I did my MTech in CSE from Amity University. I have interned at monster.com. I have also worked on open source searching platforms like solr and lucene.
I learnt about ACM while doing research work for my B.Tech final year project. I was one of the founding members of the Amity ACM Student Chapter.
During my time as a core member I was charged with development of website for the chapter, being a webmaster was a great experience. Besides that I conducted workshops, talks and events like Hakrshop and Hackathon.
I hope that Amity ACM Student chapter becomes the best student chapter in the country and someday in the world! I suggest that Amity ACM chapter could start a hacker space so that inventors and hackers could be supported.
At present, I’m doing research on short text analysis/classification; deep learning and real time systems. I’ve got a national award from DRDO for my internship where I made a search engine for them. I got placed at Ericsson and even started a venture with IBM's CTO and Redhat's Head Dev. I’ve also worked on a small optimisation project with IBM ASIA's distinguished engineers. I was the Vice president of the Artificial Intelligence club, ASET and also worked as a Co-ordinator during Confluence, IT Summit, Amity University.
During my third year, in BTech CSE, our HOD sir, informed us that a company called ACM is interested to start a student chapter in our college. He forewarned us that managing a student chapter would be a tough job and would require a lot of dedication and hard work. (Given that we had no student chapter before this, solely managed about by CS department.) We agreed to it and we have done anything and everything in our power to make it the best student chapter.
Our first challenge was to convince our fellow students to join ACM. At that time a person had to pay registration fees of RS.1000 to join ACM, which made us, all the more apprehensive about the issue of getting more participants. But we knew a good ACM's student chapter will help the members a lot in many ways. So we decided to involve at least 100 members. We tried to convince the students through interacting with them. I was to give a speech in front of huge crowd of students for the same. . I decided to speak my heart out and noticed the crowd was with me, actually agreeing and connecting to what I was saying. The feeling was overwhelming and by then all the other founder members to decided to join me in the speech.
After the two speeches we asked for people who were interested and started collecting money. By the end of first day of collecting money, we had more members than the most established student chapters like IET.
So we decided to leave a legacy in form of an established student chapter (at least that's how we like to think of it! :P)
Most of our time with this chapter was consumed in establishing it. Creating a politics free chapter where anyone could do anything without going through hierarchy. But our juniors have inherited an established student chapter in terms of members who are aware of it and who are willing to work for it. I expect this chapter to become the best chapter worldwide.
I’m currently working on a recommendation generator based on sentimental analysis of tweets. I got placed in Aricent and I’ve also cleared the interview for navy. I have won many medals during Sangathan, Amity Sports event. I and my friend Shashank have a start-up named Dwible. I’ve interned at a testing firm, where I learnt a lot about Software testing.
I was one of the founder members of the Amity ACM Student Chapter. Our HOD sir had informed us about it and we agreed to be a part of it instantly. Initially we were a small group of 7-8 people but now it has grown exponentially.
In the initial stages, we had to do a lot of work. We all would work together on everything, right from the most important issues to the most trivial ones. The team was and still is great! Everyone worked selflessly.
I expect that our juniors continue the good work and most importantly learn a lot, and take with them great experiences like I did.
I am pursuing B.Tech CSE from Amity University, Noida .I started my own venture "Dwible" with my friend Abhishek and ACM helped me a lot by providing technical and marketing support. I got placed at mart4me and Crostitch.
When ACM was introduced in Amity one of friends, Md. Farhan Ali was the president and he asked me to join this chapter as The Association for Computing Machinery(ACM) is an international learned society for computing and it world's largest scientific and educational computing society. It is a not-for-profit professional membership group and it has approximately more than 100000 members worldwide. This blew me away and I joined ACM.
I was the one of the cofounding member and the Secretary. The kind of work I was into was management based. ACM helped me increase my Leadership and Communication Skills. It also helped me learn how to work in a team by giving me opportunities for organizing a number events. I want AASC to win maximum ACM awards in future. I expect the members to participate and win the ACM ICPC! All the best to each one of you!
It was in October 2013 that Dr Abhay Bansal, the then Head of Department (Computer Science of Engineering), discussed the plans of starting the ACM student chapter in Amity University. I founded the chapter with 4 of my friends. I held the position of chapter’s Chairperson. That sounds sweet, but came with a lot of responsibilities. I was responsible for creating a strong footprint of the chapter in Amity University as well as in the Delhi-NCR region. We organized technical events, workshops, and international lectures.
Being its founder, I feel myself very strongly connected with the chapter. My only advice to the next set of student members is that ACM offers a great deal of professional exposure and flexibility which when coupled with academic learning, produces engineers that can make a difference to the society. If you are passionate about technology, this is the place for you. But yeah, you have a lot of responsibilities upon yourself as a chapter member.
