Sanskrit and Computer Science[edit]

Shri Timli Vidyapeeth (श्री तिमली विद्यापीठ) has introduced a unique program in which students are trained with holistic development approach. Gurukul is providing Sanskrit education with Computer Science and also conducts seminars on various topics on regular basis.

Sanskrit Research[edit]

Shri Timli Vidyapeeth has a Sanskrit Research Center.There have been suggestions to use Sanskrit as a metalanguage for knowledge representation in e.g. machine translation, and other areas of natural language processing because of its relatively high regular structure. This is due to Classical Sanskrit being a regularised, prescriptivist form abstracted from the much more complex and richer Vedic Sanskrit.[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
