Secondment to the University of Jena


Ashmita Bose participated in the secondment at the University of Jena, Germany. She mainly trained and taught her chemical system with new datasets. Her attention was focused on the classification of the points of the two intertwined Spiral. Classifying the points with respect to which Spiral it belongs to has always been a challenging problem in Artificial Intelligence (Al). It has been seen as a benchmark to define how good of an Al it is. A system of coupled chemical oscillators was used to perform this particular classification task.

In the next project, Ashmita used its chemical system to predict the drug response in cancer patients. She used an evolutionary algorithm as a tool to train her chemical system to perform information processing. Further Ashmita has learnt different ways to improve the evolutionary algorithm to get a satisfactory result. While working on these problems, she also learnt some statistical models like linear regression, ridge regression and how to use it for analyzing data. Ashmita has also learnt the basics of the R language.

Finally, Ashmita Bose concluded secondment by presenting her work titled “Determination of Psychotic behaviour by a network of chemical oscillators”.
