Hello! I am SADAF NOOR. Currently a senior student at BRAC University. Trying to do interesting thing here with technology at somewhere.

As in the front line I dared to introduce myself by the educational institute, so think it would be safe to put it clear, that not the one who is being loved for keeping good grades in all the courses but for the enthusiasm over the things I love to do. . Actually from my childhood I was curious about how lifeless metals get life-like thing when electricity goes through them, I wanted to build a computer for my own and leaded me to my university life as a student of Electrical And Electronic Engineering. Later on I became super impressed by the Computer Science, so inspite of having not-so-impressive grades in the spreadsheet, I dared to do a double major.

Other than that I love having coffee so feel free to invite me somewhere good so that we can talk about things. I watch movies a lot but probably we won't have much in common in taste. When I am upset about something, I try to draw things, apparently I am not the best artist :P but still you can check them out.

Please don't hassitate to say "Hi" to me at least when the first time you meet me so that I can say "Hi" later wherever I can find you. That's it. Keep my visiting card for future.Follow me via social nodes:

What else? if you want to talk with me about something, you can just send me a line at: email@sadafnoor.com

Basic Linear Regression

I was planning to revise my Machine learning knowledge from long, mainly because I had learned it very long ago from DR. Andrew NG tutorials, and I was too young back then to realize everything clearly what he has said, so thought maybe it is my time build confidence. In this blog I am basically writing about linear regressions with the mathematical proof of why it works, and how it works. Read more…

A bit of Hardware interface and memory-data

Hardware is basically something that has physical existence, something we can see. Well, in this age of nano electronics, so its naive to say that, because the components that it made of can’t really be seen without electronic microscope and for sure, we don’t really know what else is coming next. On the other hand software is an idea, that can save the world, something that made of logic bits which has to run on top of those hardware. There are many layers of abstractions in between this hardware and software. If we can master over this abstractions then definitely we can figure out a way to take advantage out of it when we are programming. So, I thought learning about memory will be a good starting point.

Linear programing and duality optimzation of MRF

Markov Random Field can be used in segmentation, stereo matching, optical flow, image restoration, image completion, object detection and what not? But the problem with this is that the problem is highly non-trivial and is actually NP hard. So we need to figure out a way to optimize its complexity.

Why Android app DOES NOT run on Java Virtual Machine!

I had a misconception for like years that as we write code in java for android application so there must be an JVM [just like on J2ME mobiles ] in underline android Operating System but actually I was actually wrong. So I have written a little bit on the differences.

Looks like I get caught in the last page of a famous newspaper!

First time in the history, I have made my way in a national newspaper, a very popular newspaper! Not only that it is on the last page, a grand entry I must say :P  Kidding apart it is for a good cause, so I think I can be a little bit proud. Read more…

Altogather we have painted a local free primary school for free!

Most of my life I have studied in the school of the country side because of the job of my father. I have studied in 12 different school in total. Most of them are of very low quality. Right now I may have a good environment than those institutions but yet let me explain what I had back then, there were no fans, no electricity and more then 200 students in a class studying with me. everyone shouting, crying and the class room I had was broken faded wallsm written all those shits all over the wall and what not? BUT finally I had a chance to give something back to the community that I am from, we have painter a free primary school to celebrate the 21st February. Read more…

Celebrating #hourOfCode with little kids

We have celebrated #hourOfCode at Mac Master English Medium School on 9th December 2013 at 11:30AM. Probably this is the first ever #hourOfCode here in #Bangladesh amid these political crisis. It was really a memorable event that I have ever organized. Today I am writing about it…

Recieved my new passport…

Ummm! Looks like the passport size photo looks a lot bigger than that of on passport! Here in this part of world we need passport size photo in every step that we intend to take. So it was actually disappointing to see that the passport size photo that we were using was actually exaggerated. Let’s not talk about the picture they took with their DSLR camera, do I look like this? Seriously? Everybody complains about it. In that sense I think my one was better.  Kidding apart,  after months of verification and other shits… WaLa! Finally got this passport today. I have got many places to go actually… Checklists are getting bigger and bigger… Wallet is getting thinner and thinner. Lets see what life has more to offer… being optimistic :)

Keeping up-to-date with git forked repository

When we determine to contribute on an opensource project at github, our steps begin from forking on a repository. Then we create a new branch when we are working on a new feature. Then when we are done with this branch we make a pull request to the repository we have forked from. In best case our codes gets accepted by the owner of the repository. Yahoo! The owner merge repositories. But eventually another developer from another part of the world probably has changed another piece of code on another file. So now my repository is not up-to-date at all. Now how can we keep this repository up-to-date? It is actually very simple, but I keep forgetting it everyday… even I forget proper keyword to google it!! (“thats actually a real problem!”)

First week of July: Work work work, exams, work

This week was really a though week. Finally started to work on projects, started to code again. Thats great. I also needed to get busy for a reason, and realized busyness is not working anymore. This week was also a mid week which means I got almost many layered sandwiched. Opz, its ramadan time. can’t even have sandwich in the day time. Hahaha, yet I could say, it was a good week for few tiny things (kidding? hell no, it meant a lot to me). Read more…
