Machine Learning has started its move from the cloud to the periphery of the network. Today’s edge devices are becoming smarter and are no longer the dumb devices that would simply transmit the data to some central location. The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is conducting the 2nd department distinguished Industry-Academia Interaction lecture in the ECE DDIAIL series. Dr Amit Kumar Saha, Principal Engineer at Cisco Meraki, Bangalore, will deliver a talk on the topic ‘Computer vision at the edge’.
The talk will focus on the evolution of a specific type of edge device, the surveillance camera, from the traditional CCTV model to the smart camera model. It will discuss some of the engineering and research challenges in building smart cameras that lie at the periphery of the network.
Date: May 7, 2022
Time: 10.30 am to 12.00 pm IST

The Department of English has scheduled a webinar on the topic “Academic Writing & Creative Writing” under the theme “Language and Society” with Prof Vanessa Sasson as the keynote speaker.
Date: May 05, 2022
Time: 6.30 PM IST
Academic writing and creative writing seem to be pulling the act of writing and the writers in two different directions. A lot of writers, especially aspiring writers, tend to think of both genres as catering to very different audiences and fulfilling very different needs in very different contexts. Does that mean you can be only one and not the other? Do you have to choose? And how do you decide what to commit to? In this talk, Prof Vanessa Sasson will share her experience of writing in both capacities and discuss the joys and challenges of both.
