Kolkata/IBNS The Department of Information Technology (IT) of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), WB and the Center for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Kolkata, India are jointly organizing a workshop on Artificial Intelligence and its Applications using tools and case studies to equip participants as per current industry trends.

Upon completion of this workshop (an Ongoing Online Workshop from Nov 16 to Nov 20), participants will be empowered to use computational techniques in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Robotics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning based applications.

The importance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is immense in today's digitized environment. It is heavily used for automation across several industries.

Many manufacturers are using robots to replace tasks such as welding, mining activities, movement of parts within a factory that were previously carried out by humans.

The financial industry is seeing a heavy surge in the use of AI and machine learning for investment advisory. Another domain which is seeing heavy use of AI is healthcare.

AI is helping physicians to decide on the best treatment and predict future complications that a patient may encounter. India can benefit a lot from the use of AI by focusing on sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, finance, infrastructure and also defence. Financial issues such as tax evasion, money laundering etc. can be easily addressed using AI.
