Welcome to Faculty Development Programme on Machine Learning and Optimization

About the Programme

Machine Learning and Optimization are important part of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. As the data is growing in every domain and it is predicted as new oil of economy, Machine Learning and Optimization are way/model to explore the data and get new inference and learning about data. These are very helpful in Health sector, education, Industry and for welfare of Society. Hence, it is important to bring awareness among researchers & academicians and train manpower on Machine Learning and optimization to do innovative research work, projects, and create knowledge base.

Objectives of the Programme

  • To disseminate of the knowledge of Machine Learning and Deep Learning among students, researchers and academicians.

  • To provide conceptual understanding of different Machine Learning algorithms.

  • To provide basics of Optimization and use in Machine Learning Algorithms among students, and researchers.

  • To provide Hands-on experience of various Python tools to use Machine Learning Algorithms.

  • To discuss the current status of the AI: Machine Learning, Deep Learning Optimization development and research work in India and across the world.

About IIIT-Allahabad and MLO lab

The institution was founded in 1999, and in the following year received university status and the right to award its own degrees. In 2014, the IIIT Act was passed, under which IIITA and four other Institutes of Information Technology funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development were classed as Institutes of National Importance. Machine Learning & Optimization(MLO) Laboratory under Department of Information Technology, IIIT- Allahabad is established with the vision to work on basics of Machine Learning optimization and modeling of learning problems. Also, we are working on Transfer Learning and Representation Learning with application focus on NLP and Vision.
