Mohammad Ashraful Alam, a Bangladeshi descent in the United States of America invented a new ‘Electric sensor’ that can detect the living and the dead cells of bacteria within few minutes conquering the current challenge of science to detect Bacteria in hours.

This is the success story of another Bangladeshi, Mohammad Ashraful Alam (Bengali: মুহাম্মদ আশরাফুল আলম) in United States of America who invented a new ‘Electric sensor’. With his invention, living and the dead cells of bacteria can be detected within few minutes. As a result, the diagnosis of diseases will be more accurate than earlier. And protection of different types of dishes will be ensured.

Mr. Ashraful Alam teaches in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Puradu. He had studied in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET) in Bangladesh.

medicine. Usually it takes few hours to examine bacteria samples. So, this is quite difficult to detect the disease or starting the treatment of the patients. But the sensor he made with a PHD student, Aida Ebrahimi, would take few minutes to complete the whole process. The sensor can accurately detect the difference between living and dead bacteria cells.

The research paper of Ashraful Alam and Aida Ibrahim was published in the Journal, “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”. The study is important that the sensor can detect the difference between the dead and the living bacteria cells within a short time. This will help realizing how the bacteria die. The treatment of a bacteria infected patient can be started quickly now and effective drugs also can be given to cure the patient soon.

He is a man whose success was featured as the cover story in Malaysian, Singaporean, and other Asian magazines. The honorable Sultan of the Malaysian state recognized him with the title, ‘Dato’ for his success in social and business activities. He is no one, but Nidhir Saha (Bengali: নিধীর সাহা), a great man of Bangladesh. He is the son of Late Sudhir Chandra Saha.

He is the son of Dakshinpara of Savar, Dhaka. He was born in 1964. After completing his study in Adharacandra High School of Savar, he was admitted to Mohammadpur Graphics Art Institute of Dhaka in 1981. By the end of the studies there, he moved to Malaysia for higher studies with scholarships.

The person, who came to Malaysia merely for higher education, had built a huge business concern. He established an international level printing business organization, BS Print Malaysia with 60 thousand square feet area in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, beside the high way of Jalan inarahana of Kucailamaya, Malaysia.

80 local and foreigners including 30 Bangladeshis have been working there. The company has workers from Nepal, Myanmar besides Malaysian.

In the beginning, Mr. Saha saved two thousand ringgit from the money of Scholarship with which he started his business. The beginning was quite difficult. At first, he collected work orders and got supplied after printing from other presses. In short, he worked as the middleman. In 1991, he registered his factory with the name of ‘BS Print Malaysia’.

He need not look back from then. At present his organization controls 45-50% of total Malaysian publishing market. He also gets regular work orders from United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, even from Australia. And gradually his company became the first ISO accredited company of Malaysia (‘ISO 12647-2-certified printshop’) in the printing sector.

Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah of Pahang state honored him with an award, ‘Dato’ in 2013. He is engaged in business activities, as well as various social activities. He has been active for a long time with the Rotary Club of Putrajaya.

Ehsan Hoque, the inventor of Mood Meter which can read the mood or smiles of human being, contributes in the field artificial intelligence

Machine can measure the smile. The man-made device can do everything. The device can even detect muscle movements, frowning or the tendency of slight lips press. If a person can smile in front of the device, it can predict the happiness of the person. This is something new and like fairytale in the field of technology considering current advancement of technology even in the developed country. But a Bangladeshi with his team mates made this possible through his historical invention.

Two youths have designed this device, ‘MIT Mood Meter’ in the media lab of MIT. One of them is a proud Bangladeshi, Mr. Ehsan Hoque (Bengali: এহসান হক).

The movement of Human face and voice analysis is of the main subject of their research to help identify the device of human emotions. However, Mr. Ehsan worked to make a first automatic robot in the laboratory of Walt Disney which could see, hear and make decisions by itself before doing this project.

MIT students, Mr. Ehsan Hoque and Mr. Xavier Hernandez began the work of the mood meter collectively. The project of Ehsan prepared a report on the level of happiness of the people of the area of MIT campus by analyzing the grimace of human face through 4 cameras placed in 4 important places of MIT Campus.

At the beginning of this study, the project faced different barriers. There was a need of sample of joy and despair. Most of the researches in the past were through the sample of acting. For example, Unsaturated people were asked to express their feeling in front of camera as if they were happy or they were disappointed.

But the data found through such acting was not found true. They needed real-time data. Computer algorithms can detect samples collected through acting. But in reality, the computer algorithm was failed totally to detect human emotions.
The computer algorithms required spontaneous expression. For this, they had to make a trap in which arrangements were made for the samples to make them laugh and disappointed.

Through this set-ups, they got the samples and they started analyze two types of samples laughter- One smile really a matter of genuine laughter, another smile even in the midst of despair. All the samples of smiling were recorded because there is less benefit in analyzing still pictures. They started analyzing the entire videos later.

A term of Computer Science is ‘machine learning. For this, there is a need of mathematical equations solving. There was no difference found between smiles of still photographs in the equations. However, the progress of two types of smiles had different developments. Spontaneous smile slowly grew and reached to intensified level, and the smile in the frustration created quickly and vanished away quite quickly.

With deep thoughts, they had created algorithm on machine learning. They have found that computer can identify two types of smiles 90% correctly. When they opened their device to public, they were surprised to see that their device can realize the smile of people more than the people do by themselves. The glorified part of this study that the device is able to understand the feelings of human being. This invention would add different dimensions in the field of artificial intelligence.

The inventor of such tehcnology, Mr. Ehsan Hoque completed his Secondary School (SSC) from Udayan School of Dhaka, Higher Secondary (HSC) from Dhaka College. He moved to United States of American for higher studies. He graduated in Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering from Penn State University, PA, USA in 2004 and completed Master’s degree in Computer Engineering from University of Memphis, TN, USA in 2007. He completed his PHD in Media Arts and Sciences (Media Lab) in Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA.in 2013.

He is now working in University of Rochester, NY as an Assistance Professor in Computer Science Department, Assistant Director for Research Outreach of Goergen Institute for Data Science. He is now researching on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for developing computational approaches to generate new insights and theories about human behavior that are “written nowhere, known by none, and understood by all.”

Dr. Rasel Das, an idol of Bangladesh, awarded with ‘Elsevier Atlas Award’ for his research on purifying the sea water

Dr. Rasel Das (Bengali: রাসেল দাস), is an idol of Bangladesh, awarded along with his team mates for his research work on purifying the sea water. He was awarded with ‘Elsevier Atlas Award 2015’ in 2015. He has done his research on Carbon nanotube membranes for water Purification as part of completing his PHD degree.

This award is awarded in each year in every trades of science (including Physics, Chemistry, Health) by selecting the best research paper from research papers published in journals worldwide.

According to elsevier.com, ‘With over 2,500 journals publishing articles from across science, technology and health, our mission is to share some of the stories that matter. Each month Atlas showcases research that could significantly impact people’s lives around the world or has already done so. We hope that bringing wider attention to this research will go some way to ensuring its successful implementation.

With so many worthy articles published the tough job of selecting a single article to be awarded “The Atlas” each month comes down to an Advisory Board. The winning research is presented alongside interviews, expert opinions, multimedia and much more on the Atlas website’.

According to one of the press releases of elsevier.com, ‘About 400 million people are using desalinated water and it has been projected that 14 % of the global population will be forced to use sea water by 2025. Desalination plants already provide much of the water used by people in many parts of the world, especially in Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Australia. Climate change is only increasing the demand for desalinated water as greater evaporation and rising seas further limit freshwater supplies for a growing world population. But current methods to desalinate water come at a very high cost in terms of energy, which means more greenhouse gases and more global warming. Existing desalination plants rely on reverse osmosis, vacuum distillation, or a combination of the two. But those methods are energy intensive and costly. Carbon nanotubes are tiny hexagonal tubes, made by rolling sheets of graphene, said Rasel Das, first author of the paper. They require little energy and can be designed to specifically reject or remove not only salt, but also common pollutants’.

Mr. Das was born on 17th June, 1987. He had completed his graduation in 2009 and Post-graduation in 2011 from Chittagong Science and Technology University with first class grading in Bio-technology. Later he had joined in Chittagong Science and Technology University as Lecturer in Biotechnology department in 2012. He admitted later in PHD in Nanotechnology and Catalysis Research Center, University of Malaya, 50603 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2012 where he contributes to the research along with his team-mates Md. Eaqub Ali, Sharifah Bee Abd Hamid, Seeram Ramakrishna, Zaira Zaman Chowdhury.

Jawed Karim, the co-founder of Youtube, is a Bangladeshi origin German-American engineer

The Bangladeshi born German American, Mr. Jawed karim (Bengali : জাওয়েদ করিম), had founded YouTube, one of the most popular video sharing website of the world as a co-founder with Chad Hurley and Steve Chen in 2005. YouTube is the third most visited website in the world, behind Google and Facebook. Its users will soon be uploading 1 million videos every day. It is revolutionizing advertising, broadcasting, music and the media. The first video of YouTube, Me at the zoo; the great-granddaddy of millions that followed, is an 18-second clip of Karim standing by the elephant pen at a California zoo was uploaded by Karim at 8.27 PM on April 23, 2005. In a speech of Jawed Karim on 13th May 2007 at the University of Illinois’ annual ACM Conference, Jawed gave a lecture about the history of YouTube entitled YouTube: From Concept to Hyper-growth as the 136th and youngest Commencement Speaker in the school’s history. The lecture material also contained pictures and videos of Jawed, Chad and Steve from the garage days of YouTube.
Youtube video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAJEXUNmP5M

Naimul Karim, a Bangladeshi American researcher at 3M is the proud father of Karim and Christine Karim, a German scientist and research associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Minnesota is his proud mother. Jawed was the first child for Naimul Karim and Christine who had met as students at the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg in Germany, fallen in love and gotten married. Naimul Karim, residence of DIT quarters in Shiddheswari, had moved to Leipzig, Germany in 1975 from Bangladesh. He stood first in the combined merit list for Dhaka Division Secondary (SSC) exams in 1972. There, he had to learn German before entering the regular programme to get his “Diplom” (equivalent to Master’s degree) in chemistry.
Naim and Christine got married and a year later, they were graced with the birth of Jawed. Almost 30 years later, Naim is an accomplished scientist at 3M Corporation with 30+ patents to his name and Christine is an assistant professor of biochemistry at the University of Minnesota. Another son, Ilias was born in 1989, also in Germany.
Karim was born in Merseburg of then East Germany (Deutsche Demokratische Republik or East Germany) on January 1, 1979. His family had crossed the Berlin Wall by the year 1980 and he had brought up in Neuss, then West Germany. His family moved to United States in 1992, two years after German reunification at 13 years of his age for whom, technically, English was the third language. He had completed his graduation from Central High School in Minnesota and later joined in University of Illinois where Marc Andreessen, and other creators of the first popular Web browser, Mosaic, the precursor to what became known the world over as the Netscape Internet browser, attended.
He left campus prior to graduating to become an early employee at PayPal, but continued his coursework, achieving his Bachelor of Science in computer science. Many of the core components of PayPal, including its real-time anti-fraud system, were designed and implemented by Karim during his service in PayPal.
He had met Chad Hurley and Steve Chen at the time of working in Paypal, the payment service to eBay in 2002. The three later had founded the YouTube video sharing website in 2005 altogether. The three agreed within a few days in February, and then divided work based on skills: Hurley designed the site’s interface and logo. Chen and Karim split technical duties making the site work. They later divided management responsibilities, based on strengths and interests: Hurley became CEO; Chen, chief technology officer. Karim had already planned to resume computer studies, so he opted out of management and agreed to take a smaller ownership stake than the other two founders. He continued advising YouTube as advisor. The growth of the site was so unparalleled that YouTube was sold to Google for $1.65bn 20 months later since founding in October 2006. Karim says his idea for what became YouTube sprang from two very different events in 2004: Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction,” during a Super Bowl show, and the Asian tsunami.
After founding the company and developing the YouTube video website with Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, Karim had re-enrolled as a graduate student in computer science at Stanford University while continued acting as an advisor to YouTube. The story had find an end when they had decided to sell YouTube to Google with a deal in which Karim had received 137,443 shares of stock, worth about $64 million based on Google’s closing stock price of that time.
YouTube’s expansion has not been without growing pains. Inside, the site’s community spirit has been shaken by debates over authenticity after the exposure of the likes of LonelyGirl15, the home-schooled American teen who turned out to be a New Zealand actor. Outside, it has been challenged legally by companies including Viacom and the English Premier League over copyright infringements and, more widely, by critics who see it as grotesquely trivial and narcissistic.
Karim was also contributed in developing computer games, particularly, a game that used to be very famous some 10 plus years ago called Doom. In his continued effort, Karim has launched a venture fund called Youniversity Ventures in March 2008, with the goal of helping current and former university students to develop and launch their business ideas. He also advises and invests in Milo.com (local shopping search). He is now one of the backers of San Francisco-based Dotblu, which runs a “social betting service” designed to let people turn Twitter and Facebook status updates into a game.
One of his famous word from this legendary figure, Take risk and be successful!

Shahriar Nirjon , a Bangladeshi born engineer invented the musical heart which can play music based on heart beat of different situation of user

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is Shahriar Nirjon (Bengali: শাহরিয়ার নির্জন), a Bangladeshi born engineer who invented the ‘musical heart’ which can play music based on heart beat of different situation of user.
Musical Heart is created with the combination of Hardware and Software. An earphone is used as hardware in which sensor was included which can count the heart beat. His technology will mix with the heartbeat to play song by choosing songs from the play list.
This technology can understand what the user is doing (sleeping, running, standing or walking) through the earphone. This information can sent to Smartphone through audio jack in which the app was installed. The work of the app is to play the right music from the playlist based on the situation of the user. Even this app can play a music which helps to increase heartbeat if the user feels to increase his / her heart beat. But this depends on the regular use of the user. This innovation was presented in the 10th Comuting Machinary Conference on Embeded Networked Sensor System in November, 2012 in Toronto of Canada.
Shahriar Nirjon had completed his studies from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and moved to University of Verginia of United States in 2008. He had researched in Sensing and Embedded Network System of Smartphone. As part of this, he had created an application called, ‘Musical Heart’.
He had received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Virginia, under the supervision of Jack Stankovic in August, 2014. In his career also, he was successful. He had worked as ‘researcher’ in the Networking and Mobility Lab at the HP Labs (2014-2015). Later he had joined in the UNC Chapel Hill as an Assistant Professor (2015).
