The Robert Bosch Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, IIT Madras, organized the ‘Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Conclave’ focused on understand cutting-edge technology and innovation in the field with participation from top technology firms and think-tanks including Google, Amazon, Foxconn and TVS group among others.
Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Tamil Nadu e-Governance Agency here, to enhance data driven governence in education, health care and agriculture sectors.
Professor Ravindran B, who heads the Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at IIT-Madras, said: “We have worked on building AI based decision-making algorithms that allow us to adaptively learn controllers for driving. In particular, our group has explored the question of learning from demonstrations. These are largely laboratory experiments and have not yet been translated into real systems.”
