US $2,000 cash prize for Transfer Learning Model hosted on Heroku using React & Flask
Two Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) students have won the Regional Level Developer Circles Community Challenge hosted by Facebook.
The challenge invited developers and creators to add an innovative spin on technical education by creating tutorials that showcase the capabilities of Facebook technologies.
Mohd Ahmad, a fourth-year student of BTech Electronics & Communication Engineering, and Mohd. Azhan, a fourth-year student of BTech Electrical Engineering, were among 2,422 participants/teams from across the world.
Jamia vice-chancellor Prof. Najma Akhtar congratulated both students on their achievement and wished them good luck for future endeavours. With the scientific research by the university researchers getting world attention, the university will lay more emphasis on this front, Akhtar said.
The Jamia team has been awarded US $2,000 as cash prize for their project Transfer Learning Model hosted on Heroku using React & Flask, a way to create own text classifier that can be used to check whether the sentiment a sentence carries is positive or negative.
The implementation of this deep learning model is based on RoBERTa, which is a Robustly Optimised BERT Pretraining approach.
Ahmad and Azhan, along with 20 others from across the world, will now be invited to enhance their projects by November 30 to have a chance at the global prizes to be announced in mid-December.
The Facebook Developer Circles are communities of innovators, where aspiring and experienced developers receive free tools to build new skills, grow ideas and boost their careers. They invite participants to go one step beyond creating software solutions by creating tutorials on the code they have created.
