Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering conducted a one week Faculty Development Program (FDP) on Natural Language Processing from January 6 to 10, 2020. This faculty development program was conducted under the head of EOI between Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering of Faculty of Engineering & Technology, MRIIRS, Faridabad, and MNIT (Malaviya National Institute of Technology) Jaipur.
ECE, FET, MRIIRS is a remote centre for Global National Knowledge Network (NKN) of Ministry of Electronics & Communication Govt. of India. The experts for the program were Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharya, IITB; Dr. Asif Ekbal, IITP; Dr. Sriparna Saha, IITP; Dr. Atul Gupta, IIITDMJ; Dr. J. P. Singh, NITP & Dr. Namita Mittal, MNITJ. Experts delivered lectures & lab session on issues and challenges of large database processing where Natural language processing (NLP) plays a significant role.
Natural Language Processing (NLP) improves efficiency & accuracy of documentation processes and helps in identifying the most pertinent information of database during processing. Discussions on latest trends and developments in the domain of Artificial Intelligence provided a room to the participants for exploring new research areas and opportunities in engineering. The event was a good source of learning and motivation for the participant to focus on their skill development.
This Faculty Development Program was financially supported by MNIT Jaipur (under Global NKN initiative of Ministry of Electronics & IT, Govt. of India). Dr. Vimlesh Singh, Associate Professor (ECE), FET, MRIIRS, Faridabad is remote Center Coordinator at MRIIRS, Faridabad.
