This event is one of our 2024 Inaugural Lectures series with Professor of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence (AI), Ardhendu Behera.

“My lecture will explore computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI), showcasing my research in deep learning, computer vision, and multimodal AI, detailing practical implementations across diverse domains.

Advancements in computer vision and AI have taken the technology way beyond academia, leaving a profound impact on industries from healthcare to autonomous vehicles. I will discuss their transformative role in augmented reality, national security, and challenges like interpretability and biases.

I also want to give the audience a historical perspective of these technologies, from its foundational roots in the 1950s to the recent, rapid evolution of AI and computer vision and how its applications are shaping today’s ‘Wild West’ of technology.”
