NIRJULI, Aug 30: Scientific knowledge has a pivotal role to play in this IT age, NERIST director Prof H S Yadav said while terming ‘Engineering applications in signal processing and machine learning’ as an emerging area of science.
In his inaugural to five-day online faculty development programme (FDP), sponsored by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Training & Learning (ATAL) Academy on above topic recently, he advocated that scientific and technological knowledge should percolate down to the masses to become willing partners of nation building. He exhorted all faculty members to organize more such programmes in future.
Former NERIST dean Prof M Murlidhar stressed on importance of such programmes that would strengthen the teaching learning quality in education system.
The FDP was focused on mainstreaming novel technical developments and challenges in multiple applications in both engineering and science domains. Signal processing and machine learning has conquered almost all fields of computer science and engineering spanning from biomedical signal analysis to cyber security and cloud computing in academia, industry and Govt during last few decades to solve real-world problems.
Professors of various IITs, Delhi JNU, NERIST, Bangalore’s VI Solutions, and Uttrakhand’s, Mindfulness and Meditation Educator conducted the FDP for 167 participants, including faculty members and research scholars of IITs, NITs, CFTIs and private institutes across the country with Dr. Madhusudhan Mishra as coordinator. The training concluded with a feedback session.
