Tutorial cum workshop on AI&ML

August 10, 2018 to August 11, 2018 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

IEEE Bombay Section in collaboration with the India Council is organising a day-and-a-half long ‘Tutorial cum workshop on AI&ML’ during August 10-11, 2018.  This the second in the series, the first was held in Bengaluru last year. The local host and the venue for this edition is the CTIM Centre for Technology and Innovation Management, NITIE, Vihar Lake, Mumbai.

The event is supported by the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS)  and Standards Association (SA).

AI is an attempt to make computers as smart, or even smarter than human beings. It’s about giving computers human-like behaviors, thought processes, and reasoning abilities. Machine learning, neural networks, deep learning, natural language processing give machines power to make decisions. Machine learning is an AI technique concerned with learning insights from data and using them to make predictions about the world. Artificial neural network is a technique inspired by how our brain’s neurons function. Deep learning, which is simply a set of methods for training multilayered artificial neural networks. Deep learning methods continue to dominate the field of machine learning and have wide range of applications such as self-driving cars, image processing, video analytics, healthcare data analytics etc

In this tutorial cum workshop, experts from Industry and Academia will give insights on AI, Machine learning and deep learning frameworks, algorithms and applications of ML and DL in different sectors and will also cover challenges and opportunities using these cutting edge technologies.
