From the HOD's Desk



It gives me immense pleasure to see that the Editorial Board has come up with the sixth edition of BufferedReader. The current academic year has been quite special for BufferedReader, with the magazine being immensely praised by readers throughout the IIT(ISM) Dhanbad campus and the alumni alike. The effort put up by the BufferedReader team has meant that a lot of new faces have found their interest home as a part of this magazine, fueling the team with a lot of raw energy. As the batch of 2017 hand over their final contribution for BufferedReader, it will be an interesting time ahead to see the rush of new blood and ideas to make the magazine reach the epitome of success.

The magazine means a lot of different things to different people, but most of all, for the students, it’s a modus operandi of not restricting themselves to academics, but satiating their interests to attain overall growth. It’s quite encouraging to see the excellence the students have displayed in building this magazine out of a sheer idea

This edition starts with a dedicated piece on Neural Networks & Deep Learning. Artificial Intelligence is perhaps one field which fascinates many but ironically where it’s most dangerous is the point when we think we understand it. However, that shouldn’t deter us from entering the shallow waters of the technology which is slowly shaping the future

I wish to convey my sincere thanks to the students who have brought alive this magazine with their hard work. I am also extremely indebted to my fellow faculty members for the support they have put in successful compilation of this magazine.

I appreciate honest and frank feedback on the quality and contents of the magazine so that we can improve. Do write to me at

Happy reading!
