The Electronics and ICT academy at the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Patna is organizing an Online Faculty Development Program On Deep Learning for Visual Computing and Communications from October 15 to 21, 2020.
National Institute of Technology Patna is the 18th National Institute of Technology created by the Ministry of H.R.D. Government of India after rechristening the erstwhile Bihar College of Engineering Patna on 28.01.2004. NIT Patna marked its humble beginning in 1886 with the establishment of a pleaders survey training school which was subsequently promoted to Bihar College of Engineering Patna in 1924.
This program will help participants not only to grasp the various deep learning concepts but also their applications. In this era of interdisciplinary research and practice, deep learning concepts are widely used across other engineering domains like industrial automation engineering, mechanical engineering, marine engineering, aeronautical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, and environmental engineering.
Therefore, knowing the basics and design techniques enables one to think, create, and make efficient use of deep learning for solving problems in their respective domains. This is an attempt to get experts related to deep learning from premier institutes of India and abroad to give participants a good exposure to the above aspects of deep learning.
The objectives of the FDP are:
- To impart knowledge of principles and practices in deep learning for academicians, researchers, and students.
- To promote the use of deep learning for problem-solving in other engineering domains.
- To introduce some cutting edge research trends in the field of deep learning.
- Introduction to machine learning;
- Artificial Neural Networks,
- The Neuron Diagram,
- Perceptron, multilayer network, and backpropagation;
- Introduction to deep neural networks (DNN)-CNN, RNN, LSTM, etc.
- Advanced architecture, i.e., GAN, Transfer learning techniques, one-shot learning, etc.
- Transfer learning, Deep learning scopes, Impact of Deep Learning in this world of AI, Application to computer visions;
- Deep Architectures for medical image processing, analysis, and diagnostics, Deep Architectures for Speech, Language, and Pathological Signal Processing, Deep generative models for computational imaging, Deep Architectures for Natural Language Processing.
- Deep architectures for (speech and image-based) forensic and security-related applications, Computational intelligence in wireless communications and architectures, Computational intelligence in electromagnetics, and allied domains.
