Two-Day Faculty Development Program
“Exploring Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning”
To discuss about the recent trends in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, a two-day Faculty Development Program was organized by Department of Information Technology, on “Exploring Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning”, from18th -19th February 2021 at Seminar Hall, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon. Faculty members from Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering, Department of Information Technology and Department of Mechanical Engineering attended the workshop.
The key resource person of the Faculty Development Program was Mr. Amar Saraswat, Assistant Professor, Department of Information Technology, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon.
Day 01: 18th February 2021
During the inauguration ceremony, Prof. (Dr.) Isha Malhotra, Principal, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon discussed usage of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning to the participants, and motivated the participants to learn new technologies.
After that, Mr. Saraswat discussed the real life examples of technologies that is used in day to day life. Stating about the artificial intelligence, he said that Building an AI system is a careful process of reverse-engineering human traits and capabilities in a machine, and using its computational prowess to surpass what we are capable of.
Mr. Saraswat said that Machine Learning teaches a machine how to make inferences and decisions based on past experience. It identifies patterns, analyses past data to infer the meaning of these data points to reach a possible conclusion without having to involve human experience. This automation to reach conclusions by evaluating data, saves a human time for businesses and helps them make a better decision. He also explained the various types of learning processes, algorithms and how testing is carried out in Machine Learning.
After that Mr. Saraswat explained about types of artificial intelligence, which includes Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). With the help of a python code, the speaker also explained about the implementations of the algorithms, through which the machine can take decision.
Day 02: 19th February 2021
On the second day of Faculty Development Program, Mr. Saraswat explained about the core areas, which are benefited by Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Then, he clearly explained the difference between machine learning and deep learning in various aspects.
Mr. Saraswat also discussed the convolutional neural networks and its applications. He also explained about various deep learning algorithms such as bound box detection algorithm and object recognition algorithm, such as SVM with hog. After that, with the help of an example, Mr. Saraswat explained about fuzzy logic, its importance and how the membership function is calculated in context with the self-driving cars. Through python programming, he demonstrated that how AI could be implemented in a simple game.
In the end, feedback session and valedictory session took place, in which faculties gave the feedback of the faculty development program and discussed about their learning from this program. Then, Prof. (Dr.) Isha Malhotra, Principal, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon and Mr. Amar Saraswat, gave certificates to all the participants.
