Financial Analytics on 10K reports/annual reports and social media

The goal of this FinTech project is to understand the financial health of firms by effectively analyzing the data from multiple sources such as 10K reports/annual reports and social media. In particular, we examine the data from the four key financial statements (Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Cash Flow and Statement of Equity) and...

BharatSim: An Agent-based Simulation Framework

BharatSim is an open source, large-scale, agent based simulation framework built to help the scientific community. Most real world systems are complex in nature and agent based modeling allows researchers to create models with required complexity and test out what-if scenarios to better understand the behavior of the system. These models are helpful in understanding...

Verifiable Delay Functions using Elliptic Curves

A verifiable delay function (VDF) is a function that takes a pre-determined time to compute, even on parallel processors, and once computed, its output can be quickly verified by anyone. We are working on a number of novel constructions of VDFs, uVDFs (Unique VDFs), and cVDFs (Continuous VDFs) from point multiplication on elliptic curves, along...

Analyzing Aadhaar

India’s Aadhaar is the largest biometric identity system in history, designed to help deliver subsidies, benefits, and services to India’s 1.36 billion residents. The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is responsible for providing each resident (not each citizen) with a distinct identity—a 12-digit Aadhaar number—using their biometric and demographic details. We produce the first...

NeuroCrypt: Evading Coercion Attacks

Overcoming the threat of coercion attacks (where a legitimate user is forced to give up their credentials) in a cryptographic system has been a top priority for system designers since the birth of cyber-security. One way to overcome such a threat is to leverage implicit memory to construct a defense against so-called rubber-hose attacks where...

Retail Analytics for Product Placement in Brick-and-mortar stores

It is a well-established fact in the retail industry that the sale of items, and consequently, retailer revenue are significantly impacted by the method followed for item placement on the retail store shelves. In this scenario, if the decisions concerning the placement of products are carried out in an ad hoc manner by means of...

Byzantine Fault-Tolerant Network Size Estimation

We have been studying the very basic problem of estimating the number of nodes in a sparse network of unknown size in the presence of a large number of Byzantine nodes. Essentially all known algorithms for the fundamental Byzantine problems (e.g., Byzantine consensus, leader election, sampling) studied in the literature assume the knowledge (or at...

Using Machine Learning to attack the 3-Body Problem

The 3-body problem is a special case of the n-body problem where one takes the initial positions and velocities of three point masses and attempts to predict their motion over time according to Newtonian laws of motion and universal gravitation. Though analytical solutions have been found for special cases, the general problem remains unsolved; the...
