IIT-Madras starts winter course on machine intelligence and brain research

The course is targeting at educating students in the interdisciplinary area by combining lectures from neuroscientists as well as computational researchers working across disciplines.

The Indian Institute of Technology Madras’ (IIT-M) Center for Computational Brain Research (CCBR) is conducting a winter course on machine intelligence and brain research from January 2-9.

The course is targeting at educating students in the interdisciplinary area by combining lectures from neuroscientists as well as computational researchers working across disciplines. It is also open for the students outside the institute for auditing.

Kris Gopalakrishnan, Chairman, Axilor Ventures, and Co-Founder, Infosys, said, "This is an area that has the tremendous scope and opportunity to impact our lives. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning to address several problems that hitherto were unsolvable. We should look at issues such as understanding the use of AI and ML, which problems should be addressed, where do we use these tools, can we create the capacity and capability in these fields in India, can we create global partnerships and can we bring unique Indian views in this area."

Bhaskar Ramamurthi, Director, IIT Madras, stated, "This is an area in which a lot of capacity building is required in the country and these workshops are one way to build this capacity. Eminent researchers from across the world are attending this workshop and students can learn from them. In a short period of the next few years, we will have good results to show from our work here. We have people who are becoming experts in this cutting-edge field."
