Evaluating gender portrayal in Bangladeshi TV [article]

2017 arXiv   pre-print
Computer Vision and machine learning methods were previously used to reveal screen presence of genders in TV and movies. In this work, using head pose, gender detection, and skin color estimation techniques, we demonstrate that the gender disparity in TV in a South Asian country such as Bangladesh exhibits unique characteristics and is sometimes counter-intuitive to popular perception. We demonstrate a noticeable discrepancy in female screen presence in Bangladeshi TV advertisements and

Further, contrary to popular hypotheses, we demonstrate that lighter-toned skin colors are less prevalent than darker complexions, and additionally, quantifiable body language markers do not provide conclusive insights about gender dynamics. Overall, these gender portrayal parameters reveal the different layers of onscreen gender politics and can help direct incentives to address existing disparities in a nuanced and targeted manner.

A visual search engine for Bangladeshi laws [article]

2017 arXiv   pre-print
Browsing and finding relevant information for Bangladeshi laws is a challenge faced by all law students and researchers in Bangladesh, and by citizens who want to learn about any legal procedure. Some law archives in Bangladesh are digitized, but lack proper tools to organize the data meaningfully. We present a text visualization tool that utilizes machine learning techniques to make the searching of laws quicker and easier. Using Doc2Vec to layout law article nodes, link mining techniques to

Qualitative feedback from law researchers, students, and government officials show promise for visually intuitive search tools in the context of governmental, legal, and constitutional data in developing countries, where digitized data does not necessarily pave the way towards an easy access to information.

Statement networks: a power structure narrative as depicted by newspapers [article]

Shoumik Sharar Chowdhury, Nazmus Saquib, Niamat Zawad, Manash Kumar Mandal, Syed Haque
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We report a data mining pipeline and subsequent analysis to understand the core periphery power structure created in three national newspapers in Bangladesh, as depicted by statements made by people appearing in news. Statements made by one actor about another actor can be considered a form of public conversation. Named entity recognition techniques can be used to create a temporal actor network from such conversations, which shows some unique structure, and reveals much room for improvement in

Our results indicate there is a presence of cliquishness between powerful political leaders when it comes to their appearance in news. We also show how these cohesive cores form through the news articles, and how, over a decade, news cycles change the actors belonging in these groups.

2018 arXiv   pre-print
Solving problems with Artificial intelligence in a competitive manner has long been absent in Bangladesh and Bengali-speaking community. On the other hand, there has not been a well structured database for Bengali Handwritten digits for mass public use. To bring out the best minds working in machine learning and use their expertise to create a model which can easily recognize Bengali Handwritten digits, we organized Bengali.AI Computer Vision Challenge.The challenge saw both local and

Aims: Microballoons are floating particulate system comprising of a hollow core, drug being loaded within the polymeric layer. The aim of the study was to prepare microballoons containing extract of Clerodendrum colebrokianum, as bioactive agent. Methods: The microballoons were prepared by solvent diffusion technique, prepared microballoons were physico-chemically characterized (Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), buoyancy determination, entrapment efficiency, etc), in vitro drug release study

The developed formulation showed a buoyancy varying from 70.18%-89.90%. The entrapment efficiency of bioactives in microballoons was found between 52%-69% with a delayed release of maximum 28% in 8 hr as found from in vitro drug release study. In vivo antihypertensive studies carried out in rat model showed C. colebrookianum extract have good antihypertensive activity in both high and low dose with respect to standard propanolol. The formulations containing both doses were further found to be effectual in the treatment of hypertension because of its floating nature. Conclusion: The results suggested that optimized formulation show an effective extended release of Clerodendrum colebrokianum extract for the treatment of hypertension.
