I am a computer science graduate student at Texas A&M University. I am currently working under Dr. James Caverlee for my thesis on Soccer Data Analytics.
I like to code. I am interested in fields of Data Analytics and Machine Learning. My primary language to code is JAVA. However, I have recently developed my affinity towards Python as well.
Why are we learning about Computers and New Medias? We start by going back to :
We can see the tremendous growth of media in over one and half century and currently, we are standing in the era of information technology with the comprehensive use and reliability on internet for our day-to-day workings. Big corporates are revolutionizing media world by changing the way we communicate using Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) - Amazon's Alexa, Facebook's Oculus, Google's Day Dream, Microsoft's Hololens. All this stuff is too interesting to be ignored and I started to ponder over this stuffs. CSCE 656 Course - Computer and New Media provides a base for understanding the historical significance of the media, its evolution, different approaches to connect with the new media, criticism and approval to these approaches and the future of media technology.
While observing the profile of my classmates of this course, I realized most of students share the same interests as me. they have taken this course can be summarized by following points:
I noticed that almost all the students, though varying genres, have common interests of following TV Series as the form of media. Secondly, most of the students have keen interests in Music and Social media (particularly Facebook, Instagram and Youtube). Some students have fascination for reading books, news and blogs. I share my interests most with Nishant Barma, Nitish Chandra, Jacob Fenger, Chu-ching Hsu, Chengyi Min, Xiaoyu Wang and Roger Solis. Most of my common interests are Facebook, Instagram, TV-Series, and Youtube.
