From the HOD’s Desk

The eighth edition of the BufferedReader brings me great pride and pleasure as it marks the completion of three and a half years of the magazine. Over the editions, the magazine has made tremendous progress by providing valuable information about the latest advancements in technology as well as the various happenings at the CSE department of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad. It has earned recognition not only amongst all the departments of the college but also throughout the industry. I heartily congratulate the Editorial Board on the release of BufferedReader v4.2.

Since the invention of the steam engine, the rate of evolution of technology has significantly increased and is still increasing. New technologies not only bring comfort and convenience but also create possibilities for new jobs. This edition of BufferedReader talks about some of these at length, along with the events, activities, the placement scenario, etc. of the CSE department. The articles in the magazine would surely benefit the readers. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are the most popular topics in today’s IT world. We are honoured to publish this year’s Faculty Article, written by Prof. Ashish Ghosh, an adjunct professor of the department who is a senior faculty member of Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata. The placements statistics of the department so far this year have been fascinating, and I hope that even better results follow in the years to come.

This edition also brings along with itself a lot of new possibilities as well as challenges for the magazine. I hope that BufferedReader keeps growing in the oncoming issues as it has till date. I wish good luck to the magazine’s team for the future. Feedback and suggestions on the content, quality or design of the magazine from your side would be greatly appreciated. Please share it with us at
