2021 Venmurasu Programming Contest was the first contest conducted at PSG Tech, after we formally created the endowment fund. This year the contest was open to all circuit branch students (CSE, ECE, EEE, IT) and we hope that in upcoming years the contest will be open to all students of PSG Tech.
Goal of the contest is to help the students understand NLP lifecycle. We provided the English and Tamil versions of ten chapters from Indian Epic Mahabharatham. The English version is from Kisari Mohan Ganguly’s Mahabharatham (1883-1896). The Tamil version is from S.Arutselva Perarasan‘s Mahabharatham (2013-2020), whose translation is actually based on Ganguly’s work.
The contest is to cleanup the content, align them sentence-by-sentence, then using AI4Bharat’s IndicNLP models attempt to translate the Tamil version into English, then compare the original English version with the machine-translated version.
Thanks to PSG Tech faculty Dr.S.Sarathambekai and Dr.T.Vairam for creating the poster.
