Speaker: Dr.Jayakumar

Date and time : February 05,2020 2:30-4:30pm

Venue: e-learning hall, Amrita school of engineering- Bangalore

Organisers : IEEE student branch , Amrita school of engineering -Bangalore

On February 05, students at Amrita school of engineering Bangalore witnessed esteemed speaker Dr. Jayakumar interact with, and inspire the audience, which constituted of both B.Tech undergraduate students as well as graduate students. The Event saw enthusiastic participation by the curious student community at amrita school of engineering Bangalore.

The active participation of Ms. Uma, mentor-IEEE SENSORS council, ASEB and Dr. Navin kumar, mentor -IEEE Student Branch Amrita along with the office bearers were the key to the event’s smooth conduct. Ms. Uma and Dr. Navin kumar were key people in providing support and to encourage students to actively participate. Vice-chair (IEEE student branch), Prajwal k.s opened by introducing Dr. Jayakumar to the audience as a person of prominence .

Dr. Jayakumar , is an experienced CTO and has over 29 years of experience in signal processing industry and has worked in various fields, ideating , prototyping and triggering solutions of quality to challenges in the field of electronics and communication engineering and is currently working on innovating mathematics for neural network and associated computations.

Dr. Jayakumar captured the students attention by interrelating math, neural networks and the vastness of deep learning and defining bridges/ relations between various related fields. He spoke of the emergence of deep learning and accredited its founding to prominent figures like Geoffrey hinton ,alex krizhevsky and Ilya sutskever.Interesting examples and inferences were made, pertaining Boltzmann machine , how training networks may result in meaningful work , using artificial intelligence to program complicated machines and how math is crucial and is interlinked to the subject at discussion .Applications of deep learning such as image and object classification , semantic segmentation and so on, were mentioned in chronological order of emergence of the technology . Dr. Jayakumar also attempted to inspire students and mentioned of unexplored, future implications of the technology and how it is presently being used in the industry (such as inter-processor computing – which as he states are his current interests).

The event ended with a gesture to thank Dr. Jayakumar and positive feedback from the audience. Inspired students were then seen interacting with Dr. Jayakumar for guidance and also mentorship, which was actively encouraged by Dr. Navin kumar.
