Sourav loves anything that is new and creative and has to do with Computers, Technology or Business. Because of this, he is still undecided whether art or technology suits him better and he continues to pursue both. He started with pursuing for a Masters in Design Computing at the University of Sydney, Australia and went on to complete a Doctor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (Control Engineering) from Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan, in March of 1996.

Since 1996, Sourav has taught courses in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Creative Design, Artificial Intelligence, Theoretical Optimization, Structural and Engineering Optimization and Business at universities in Japan, USA, Turkey, Australia, Italy, France, The Netherlands, Germany, UK and India. He has created and maintained two of the most popular e-commerce enabled web sites for the world Bengali Community - Calcutta Online and Bengalnet Communications.

Sourav also has a lot of varied experience in computer programming and business consulting. He worked in Mastek Limited - a global IT services company as senior technical consultant for some time before starting off on his own. He is presently based at the Japan office of Knowledge Solutions Group and manages the Japan business while providing leadership to Global KSG. He also teaches part-time at Tokyo Metropolitan University and AIIT Japan to keep his academic roots alive.

Thoughts on Evolution

I believe that The Price Equation and The Fisher´s fundamental theorem of natural selection, two of the most powerful concepts in evolutionary genetics, should be applied in a general way to internal selective systems in learning and development. Generative mechanisms create the variation on which selection acts. A Generalized Selection formula is the fundamental to success of artificial adaptive systems.

The Price Equation

Price Equation

The Price equation describes how a trait or gene changes in frequency over time. The equation uses a covariance between a trait and fitness to give a mathematical description of evolution and natural selection. It provides a way to understand the effects that gene transmission and natural selection have on the proportion of genes within each new generation of a population.
