Immense possibilities in the moving forward artificial intelligence field: Alok Mukherjee

Prayagraj, 16 February (HS). Artificial Intelligence is a rapidly growing field which holds immense possibilities in shaping the future of technology and society.

The above views were expressed by Alok Mukherjee, Scientist, DRDO, Pune, while inaugurating the three-day 4th International Workshop on 'Generative AI and Human Robot Interaction' organized by the Center of Intelligent Robotics (CIR) at the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IT), Allahabad.

Speaking as the chief guest at Jhalwa campus on Friday, he said that there are vast possibilities of generating content in the virtual world like intelligent systems capable of doing so. With its ability to mimic and extend human creativity, artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing various industries and opening up new possibilities for innovation.

Head of Center of Intelligent Robotics (CIR), Prof. G.C Nandy said that the main idea behind AI is to teach machines to understand and repeat patterns in data so that they can create something new. It involves the use of various techniques such as deep learning, neural networks, and reinforcement learning. AI models are trained on huge datasets and learn to generate content such as images, music, text and even entire virtual environments.

He said that the alumni will be honored with the prestigious alumni award on February 17 for the important role played by the Robotics Center in establishing the brand of the institute in the global world. These awards will be given to Dr. Abhimanyu Lad, Sudipti Gupta, Pratyush Patnaik, Bhaskar Gupta, Dr. Alok Parlikar, Dr. Sameer Menon.

Professor Anirban Guha of IIT Mumbai said that deep learning and neural networks are the backbone of AI. These technologies allow machines to learn complex patterns and represent data in a hierarchical manner. Deep generator models can generate high quality content by capturing the complex details and nuances present in training data.

In the ceremony, Director in-charge of Triple IT, Prof. OP Vyas said that artificial intelligence can have great use in areas like health care, drug discovery, medical imaging and personalized medicine. Can help detect early disease through advanced image analysis and even simulate virtual organ models for surgical planning.

Professor Vrijendra Singh appreciated the contribution of everyone involved in the workshop and underlined the importance of continued collaboration in advancing the field of AI and human-robot interaction. Dr. Andrew Melnick of Germany's Bielefeld University said AI has found a natural home in creative fields such as art, music and design. It can help artists by generating new ideas, composing music, and creating visually stunning artwork. The program was conducted by Dr. Surya Prakash.
