Nabin K. Malakar, Ph.D.

I am a computational physicist working on societal applications of machine-learning techniques.

Research Links

My research interests span multi-disciplinary fields involving Societal applications of Machine Learning, Decision-theoretic approach to automated Experimental Design, Bayesian statistical data analysis and signal processing.


Interested about the picture? Autonomous experimental design allows us to answer the question of where to take the measurements. More about it is here...


I addition to the research, I also like to hike, bike, read and play with water color.

Get Ubuntu in your system

One thing I like about my Ubuntu is its color selection.
Pretty warm and nice.
Get a copy of Ubuntu for free! from:

Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Humanity to others', or 'I am what I am because of who we all are'.

I am sure that you will also love it.

Heading for MaxEnt 2008, Brazil: Today!

I am visiting Brazil for one week to participate in a conference:

There, I will be presenting my works.
Last year, MAXENT2007 was held in Saratoga Springs, NY. I was also a part of it as a local organizer. The conference brings a lot of international scientist from different fields into a common place to discuss their works and progresses made during the year. This enables a one-to one interaction with the dignified scientists in the respective field.

I will be flying from JFK, NY, USA to Sao Paulo, Brazil : tonight at 10PM.

Nepali Physics Students' Group in Facebook


Facebook has been proved to be a great place to hang out. I like it because I can find friends and friends of friends whom I had meet but had no clue on how to contact them (as we could not exchange the email address).

Recently, Pashupati Dhakal et. al. has created a group in facebook.
If you have facebook account and you are a nepali physics student, Please join the group.

Please visit the group by clicking the link below or Please copy and paste the following address in your browser:

Now we have Three genuine groups:
Google Group of Nepal Physical Society
Yahoo Group of Nepali Physicists aboard
Facebook Group of Nepali Physics Students
(apologies, if I missed any)

A Robot Conductor in Stage!

I know, it is all about pre-programmed robot in the video below.
But we all go into training to get ourselves into some familiar sequence of nice notes. That is also a kind of programming. I found a video in which the robot Asimo directing people as a conductor in a nice stage program.

Many people may find trouble to work under robot.
Oh, actually you can find humans working as robots whenever you call to the 1-800 numbers which are usually equipped with real people trained to behave as robot.
The debate on whether robots are going to outsmart people will continue.
Enjoy the video.
