parents’ death learnt about her pregnancy and forced an abortion Since she was a minor the hospital as prescribed under the law reported the case to the police and Behera was booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2012 (POCSOA) The police arrested him immediately and he had to spend five-and-a-half months in jail before being released on bail in October Under POCSOA the age of consent has been increased from 16 years to 18 years and it criminalises every sexual act involving minors even if it is with “consent” After his release in October Behera married the girl The case against him however continues and the Vasai Sessions court is scheduled to pronounce its judgment on April 23 “She is my wife We do not have any one to fall back on I fear if the court does not take our relationship into consideration I will be convicted” he told The Indian Express As per section 4 of POCSOA Behera if proved guilty can be sentenced to seven years rigorous

arrested Arjun I left the house” she told The Indian Express After staying at the railway station and outside Virar police station for a couple of days the girl went to Behera’s relatives’ place in

provisions are made to support the victim and not victimise her further If the court were to convict her husband it would render her further vulnerable It is critical that the government’s move to bring in much-needed reforms within the law of sexual crimes is more nuanced and sensitive to the needs of such vulnerable girls” said Flavia Agnes a legal scholar and women’s rights lawyer

developed a new mathematical model that can predict how soon a user will get bored of a smartphone game an advance that may help developers create more engaging apps Applied to videogames the model called survival ensemble can predict what day and at what stage of the game a user will stop playing and why they will do so “Already from their first days playing the game we know with a good degree of certainty what level a user will reach and how many days it will take them” said Africa Perianez Head of Game Data Science at the video game company Silicon Studio in Japan “The main and most pressing priority is to try to extend the player’s ‘life’ and get them to buy as much as possible Also important is to understand users’ needs and design a more entertaining and stimulating game” she

development model which allows them to know who their players are and what they like and also to predict their reactions” said Perianez The Silicon Studio platform adapts automatically to different games and data According to the researcher the system can predict who will leave the game very accurately The algorithm uses the so-called ‘ensemble’ method “a model that is based on many learning algorithms instead of a single one thereby improving the prediction accuracy by examining many more correlations and alternative models” Perianez said “Every time we run the model we are actually using 1000 distinct submodels each of which focuses on different variables and has different initial conditions” she said Also Read:India’s mobile gaming market to cross $400 million by 2022: Report

biology to know how particular cells are going to behave in the body” Perianez said The researchers have now for the first time combined the power of survival algorithms and ‘ensemble’ models in the field of video games “This has enabled us to achieve a high level of prediction accuracy as the algorithm automatically adapts to the data of the game we want to analyse” said Perianez For all the

traffic issue on the stretch from the junction of SV Road and JP Road towards the Azad Nagar Metro station The MMRDA was supposed to widen the stretch but it didn’t do so Since the road has narrowed
