COPY LINKAD Loading … The Government of West Bengal received an alert on Friday afternoon from the Central Government.Representational image | ReutersWest Bengal is on high alert after an Intel agency has warned of the possibility of terror attacks on the occasion of Buddha Purnima on Sunday, May 12. The warnings came ahead of the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha 2019 elections which is on Sunday. The alerts issued by the Intelligence Bureau (IB) states that a possible fidayeen attack might be carried out by Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) or Islamic State (ISIS).Along with the warning, IB mentioned that the attacks might be carried out in Hindu or Buddhist temples by fidayeen, who could be impersonating as a pregnant lady in undivided Bengal – which includes India’s eastern state of West Bengal and Bangladesh.The Government of West Bengal received an alert on Friday afternoon from the Central Government. According to sources in the intel agency, the attack might take place in West Bengal or Bangladesh, reports Zee News.In the aftermath of the Sri Lanka attacks, Bengal should take precautionary measures to avoid the sort of unpleasant events that have unfolded in the neighbourhood.The West Bengal Police has reportedly beefed up security across the Hindu and Buddhist temples in and other parts of the state after receiving inputs from the Intel agency.On April 27, a Bengali poster was released by a pro-Islamic State Telegram channel which had these two words – “SHIGHROI ASCHHE [coming soon]”. International Business Times had reported the story on the given date. The poster was reportedly hugely circulated and also had the logo of a group named Al-Mursalat.Earlier, the National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ) came under scanner for possibly carrying out Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka. The NTJ had close links with the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen India unit. Sri Lankan state minister of defence Ruwan Wijewardene had earlier said the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen India (JMI), a unit of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh or JMB, may have had a role in Sunday’s bombings.However, there is very little information on JMI’s activities in India. But, there have been several reports that indicate its presence in India. In February, two members of the JMB were arrested from West Bengal’s Murshidabad district.

Facebook AI introduces Aroma a new code recommendation tool for developers

first_imgFacebook AI team announced a new tool, called Aroma, last week. Aroma is a code-to-code search and recommendation tool that makes use of machine learning (ML) to simplify the process of gaining insights from big codebases. Aroma allows engineers to find common coding patterns easily by making a search query without any need to manually browse through code snippets. This, in turn, helps save time in their development workflow. So, in case a developer has written code but wants to see how others have implemented the same code, he can run the search query to find similar code in related projects. After the search query is run, results for codes are returned as code ‘recommendations’. Each code recommendation is built from a cluster of similar code snippets that are found in the repository. Aroma is a more advanced tool in comparison to the other traditional code search tools. For instance, Aroma performs the search on syntax trees. Instead of looking for string-level or token-level matches, Aroma can find instances that are syntactically similar to the query code. It can then further highlight the matching code by cutting down the unrelated syntax structures. Aroma is very fast and creates recommendations within seconds for large codebases. Moreover, Aroma’s core algorithm is language-agnostic and can be deployed across codebases in Hack, JavaScript, Python, and Java. How does Aroma work? Aroma follows a three-step process to make code recommendations, namely, Feature-based search, re-ranking and clustering, and intersecting. For feature-based search, Aroma indexes the code corpus as a sparse matrix. It parses each method in the corpus and then creates its parse tree. It further extracts a set of structural features from the parse tree of each method. These features capture information about variable usage, method calls, and control structures. Finally, a sparse vector is created for each method according to its features and then the top 1,000 method bodies whose dot products are highest are retrieved as the candidate set for the recommendation. Aroma In the case of re-ranking and clustering, Aroma first reranks the candidate methods by their similarity to the query code snippet. Since the sparse vectors contain only abstract information about what features are present, the dot product score is an underestimate of the actual similarity of a code snippet to the query. To eliminate that, Aroma applies ‘pruning’ on the method syntax trees. This helps to discard the irrelevant parts of a method body and helps retain all the parts best match the query snippet. This is how it reranks the candidate code snippets by their actual similarities to the query. Further ahead, Aroma runs an iterative clustering algorithm to find clusters of code snippets similar to each other and consist of extra statements useful for making code recommendations. In the case of intersecting, a code snippet is taken first as the “base” code and then ‘pruning’ is applied iteratively on it with respect to every other method in the cluster. The remaining code after the pruning process is the code which is common among all methods, making it a code recommendation. “We believe that programming should become a semiautomated task in which humans express higher-level ideas and detailed implementation is done by the computers themselves”, states Facebook AI team.
