About The Event

About The Event

Are we really in the age of Artificial Intelligence? The probable answer we get is “No”. But surprisingly, many world leading industries and/or academia are claiming to have developed AI system. To our understanding, all these systems available are known as “Restricted AI system”. Today’s computer/ machine can perform many tasks even better than human. A machine vision system can identify faces, objects in complex scenes. However, it fails to interpret and explain what is happening in an image unlike a human. We don’t know, how the brain is really interpreting the visual information. Hence, it’s really challenging to model a machine vision system that can have the capacity of human level recognition. Cognitive science and artificial intelligence (AI) have a long-standing shared history. Early research in AI was inspired by human intelligence and shaped by cognitive scientists. Hence, understanding how the human brain works is one of the fundamental challenges in science today. Advancing our knowledge in this regard will help us to solve various key problems both in engineering and medicine.

This workshop will introduce fundamental challenges in understanding human brain and to translate those knowledge to machine domain. Participants will learn fundamental neuroscience, various techniques to understand the mechanism behind science of intelligence. The state of art on Artificial intelligence techniques as well as opportunities & challenges will be discussed.

Participants from any branch of Science (Including Medical Science) and Engineering are encouraged to attend the workshop.

Please come and join us and be a part of this academic extravaganza!
