What We Do

Welcome to AI Lab

The AI Lab at ITU leverages the power of AI & Machine Learning for Social Good - unlock the opportunities for positive societal impact - learn the use of ICT for the improved efficiency and sustainability of Smart Cities - implement NLP techniques to infer and analyze human language - process textual information in order to make it accessible for smart decision making - by employing deep learning models that extract the high-level abstract features for classification.

AI Lab aims to realize the impact of cross-domain emerging technologies – specifically on the technical implementation of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Deep Learning applications for Social Good.

Flagship Project

The lab has been working on several research projects that seek to leverage the power of AI and Machine Learning for Social Good. Among these programs, a key project is the Mukhbir: Real-Time Anonymous Crime Reporting, The AI Lab along with CIPL at ITU has developed a real-time anonymous crime reporting android application named "Mukhbir", which will facilitate the general public to report crimes happening around them anonymously so that relevant security authorities can perform suitable actions accordingly. Mukhbir application can be downloaded via Google play store

In this paper, we address the problem of author attribution through unsupervised clustering using lexical and syntactic features and novel deep learning based Stylometric model. For this purpose, we download all available 158918 publications accessible till 1 July 2015 from PLOS.org – an open access digital repository of full text publications.

Altmetrics: A new way to measure social impact of scientific literature

altmatrics
In this project we measure the impact of scientific publications by deploying altmetrics indicators using the data from Google Scholar, Twitter, Mendeley, Facebook, Google-plus, CiteULike, Blogs and Wiki To capture the social impact of scientific publications,.

Detecting Target Text related to Algorithmic Efficiency in Full ..


NEW2
In this paper,We are observing an exponential growth of scientific literature since the last few decades. Tapping on the advancement of web-enabled tools and technologies, millions of articles are stored and indexed in the digital libraries. Among this archived scientific literature.

Identifying Important Citations using Contextual Information from Full Text

NEW

In this project we address the problem of classifying cited work into important and non-important to the developments presented in a research publication. This task is vital for the algorithmic techniques that detect and follow emerging research topics and to qualitatively measure the impact of publications in increasingly growing scholarly big data.

This project analyzes the intra- and international collaboration of 11 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in science and technology (S&T) disciplines in the period 1996–2010.by applying various bibliometric indicators along with publication and citation counts and our proposed .

Explaining the Transatlantic gap in research excellence

113

The research has shown that European universities, despite their history and overall scientific production, fail to compete in both quality and volume faced with increasing competition at the top. We also show that in addition to the competition from the USA, there is also the competition from follower countries in Asia

Measuring international knowledge flows and scholarly...

4

This project studies Intra and international collaboration of eleven member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Science and Technology disciplines, by applying various bibliometric indicators, including our newly proposed ACS index that measures the intra collaboration strength of a region.

Knowledge Flows by Citation Context Analysis

ml
In this project we measure the knowledge flows among the countries by analyzing publication and citation data. We argue that not all citations are equally important, therefore, in contrast to existing techniques that utilize absolute citation countsto quantify knowledge …

Analyzing knowledge flows of scientific literature through semantic

In this project we present a new technique to semantically analyze knowledge flows across countries by using publication and citation data using our proposed topic model with distance matrix an extension of classic Latent Dirichlet Allocation model, .

A comprehensive examination of the relation of three citation-based ...

2

Increasing investments in higher education and research, particularly in cutting edge science and technology, coupled with increasing public demand for accountability have driven the need for objective and quantitative measures of research performance. .

ITU Quality Research Rankings for Pakistani Universities & Institutes

itu
The ITU Quality Research Rankings provide the measure of key dimensions of research performance: output, scholarly impact, volume and quality. The publication based indicators measure output; the citation indicators measure scholarly impact; and the h-index combines both.

Creation and the consumption of scientific knowledge across regions.

dfffIn this project we present an innovative research that integrates the creation and the consumption of scientific knowledge across regions. From a human behavior point of view this is significant, since it provides an advanced decision making layer for bringing together researchers from all over the world

The global research benchmarking system

1

To support strategic decision making, universities require research benchmarking data that is sufficiently fine-grained to show variation among specific research areas and identify focused areas of excellence; is objective and verifiable; and provides meaningful comparisons ..  .
