RDMT-2020

Disease has become a common feature for human existence since the beginning of time. Over time, our knowledge of Science and Medicine has been expanded for a better understanding of the biological basis of any disease. Since, the last few decades, an extensive research has been going on the molecular pathogenesis of diseases. By developing a deep understanding of molecular pathogenesis, we will uncover the involvement of specific genes, proteins, and corresponding pathways to get better equipped for the development of targeted therapies for specific diseases. Continued development of our knowledge for deciphering underlying mechanisms of the disease has resulted in the development of a new era of Theranostics. Theranostics provides a targeted, safe, specific, and cost-effective treatment protocol. The proteomics, pharmacogenetics, and biomarker analysis make the backbone of theranostics. The role of theranostics is highly appreciated in the area of oncology where the nano-formulations like metallic nanoparticles, quantum dots, and carbon nanotubes, dendrimers liposomes play a pivotal role. Therefore, theranostics is a holistic transition from trial and error medicine to preventive, predictive, and personalised medicine for better treatment of diseases.

The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data. Predictions are made that the number of such devices would reach to 25 billion by this decade and majority of the services would be available through IoT. Naturally, development and maintenance of such IoT based products and services would require sufficient workforce equipped with knowledge of IoT technologies, more so in countries like India where the IoT boom is yet to pick up. With an aim to develop workforce in IoT, this course introduces to students, researchers and academicians the basic concepts of IoT through a practical view with emphasis on design, requirement, data interfacing and capabilities. The course would cover IoT fundamentals, blended with industrial case studies, design and development of IoT systems, cloud computing, and data analysis. Lab sessions will supplement the lectures.

Deep architectures are playing the most important role in the area of machine learning and are considered as the future technology and anticipated a complete paradigm shift in the area of artificial intelligence by the researchers. It is considered to be one of the most active areas of research in signal, image, vision and biometrics and comprises of supervised and unsupervised models of approach for detection/ recognition/ classification/ synthesization of objects. With the advent of extraordinary computation power and huge data sets, it is possible to model the most complex processes using deep architectures. With the advent of Deep learning architectures, almost all areas of signal processing have undergone significant changes in their approach. This is primarily because machine learning is at the forefront of solving many problems in computer signal, image, vision and biometrics which were thought to be either unsolvable or highly computationally intensive in the past. One of the key ideas which have facilitated this is the introduction of deep architectures, which form the basis of present day pattern based recognition problems. The proposed one-week course will be comprising of approximately 25 lectures followed by 15 hours’ worth of lab demonstration and hands-on approach is intended to help the participants familiarise themselves with Signal & Image Processing, Computer Vision, Biometrics and Machine Learning and pertains to how all of the approaches can be applied to research problems in real life. The course also covers essentials of machine learning, deep neural networks as well as the other models how they can be applied to solve practical problems in computer vision so that more people become interested in signal processing. Objectives: 1. Providing a platform to showcase the research work through technical paper and poster presentation. 2. Building awareness towards deep learning architectures. 3. Building the technical capacity in the area of Signal, Image, and Vision Processing via deep architectures. 4. Building communities of research students, educator, R&D, and Industry persons in this emerging area of research and development. 5. Providing hands-on tutorial sessions, where the participants can experiment with concepts and methods.
