2. Segro: Key Towards Modern Waste Management.

This paper focuses on the fact that with modernization and advancement in technology, we can improve the overall urban waste management system. SEGRO is an end to end solution, encompassing waste disposal, segregation, collection and the effective usage of recycled waste. We propose a solution that will not only effectively segregate the waste into different types based on their life-cycle but also will provide an optimal algorithm for the collection of waste.

3. Spaced Repetition for Slow Learners

An algorithm ‘Spaced Repetition for Slow Learners’ (SRSL) is described to schedule repetitions which eventually adapts to the capacity of the learner. SRSL computes the score of learners for a particular assessment based on factors such as response time, difficulty and dependency of questions. The exponential forgetting curve model is the memory model assumed by SRSL. Based on this algorithm, a model has been proposed with experimental analysis of the same.

4. Prosodic Speech Synthesis of Narratives Depicting Emotional Diversity Using Deep Learning

In this paper, an Expressive Text-to-Speech Synthesis System (ETSSS) is proposed which considers the dominant emotions in the text provided. ETSSS works in two parts: first, it identifies the label behind the text, and second produces expressive speech.
