STTP on artificial intelligence commences at NERIST

NIRJULI, 12 Jul: An AICTE-sponsored online short-term training programme (STTP) on ‘advanced engineering optimization through artificial intelligence’ commenced at the North Eastern Regional Institute of Science & Technology (NERIST) here on Monday.

A total of 118 participants from AICTE-approved institutions and a few industrial professionals from all over the country are participating in the six-day training programme.

Addressing the inaugural function, NERIST Director (in-charge) Prof M Muralidhar spoke on “the significance of artificial intelligence and optimization algorithms in solving complex engineering problems.”

The AICTE’s FDC Director B Venkat acknowledged the coordinator as well as the NERIST for organizing the training in the emerging area of artificial intelligence.

NERIST Mechanical Engineering Department Assistant Professor Dr Santosh Kumar Tamang briefed the participants about the course’s contents. He said that the course would provide an opportunity to “have hands-on training for the implementation of theoretical concepts of machine learning and optimization algorithms to solve real life problems.”

NERIST Mechanical Engineering Department Head Prof M Chandrasekaran also spoke.

Organized by the NERIST’s mechanical engineering department, the STTP will conclude on 17 July.
