The Vice Chancellor of MAKAUT Prof. (Dr.) Saikat Maitra inaugurated the Master Class on 20.01.20. and highlighted the importance of Business Analytics, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in today's digitalized environment. Prof. (Dr.) Sibamoy Dasgupta, the Inspector of Colleges Dr. S. K. Maity also mentioned the relevance of FDPs in these fields.

Prof. Kumar said that today, AI is heavily used for automation across several industries. Robots are already taking over jobs that do not require human intelligence. 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. 

According to Prof. Kumar, countries such as India can benefit a lot from the use of AI by focusing on sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing, infrastructure etc. Another area is the use of AI in defence. Issues such as tax evasion, money laundering etc can be easily addressed using AI. The government will play an important role in encouraging AI research among Indian scientific community. The current workforce will have to be re-skilled in these areas, since many skills will become irrelevant in the future. There is a great opportunity for India to excel in AI domain like in the case of Information Technology (IT).

Prof. Kumar said, "Machine Learning is a subset of AI, that providessystems the ability to learn and improve from experience. Today smartphones predict words which we want to type, which is a most successful application of ML algorithm."

A Faculty Development Programme (FDP) of seven (07) days duration based on Business Analytics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence will be conducted in April-May at MAKAUT. In that FDP the faculty members of different Institutions will trained in the aforesaid thrust areas with a view to transform them as trainers in the future.

  • Knowledge of basic statistics, probability distributions, hypothesis testing etc.
  • Working knowledge of MS Excel
  • They must have Laptop and Charger, Pen drive

 (c) After completion of FDP one Conference will be held to testify the knowledge acquired by the participants in the FDP. Those participants who will come out successful, all be the trainers to conduct different Courses on Business Analytics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in our University system.

The faculty members willing to join the Master Class can send their willingness in the E-mail id: icdepartmentmakaut@gmail.com or to dr.sdasgupta2010@gmail.com.
