Softwares Developed
PARTM: Popular Acronym Retrieval through Text Messaging

An online system in Java which searches for a given acronym in the English Wikipedia and provides its fullform alongwith a brief introduction in native language. The software is meant for users of low-cost mobile phones which have no internet facility and native language support and the users are not conversant inEnglish. The query corrects erroneous input and provides output transliterated text.


ISMStemmer

A Corpus-based language-independent stemmer written in C built on Apriori algorithm from Market Basket Data Analysis in Data Mining.
