Data analysis is a multi-disciplinary area that uses scientific methods, algorithms and systems to extract hidden knowledge and insights from data (Structured and Unstructured). Analysis of large amounts of structured and unstructured data to identify patterns can help an organization in many ways. Data analytics is a confluence of mathematics, statistics and computer science disciplines, and incorporates techniques like machine learning, cluster analysis, data mining and visualization. Hence, it is important to bring awareness among researchers & academicians and train manpower on applications of data analytics to do innovative research work, projects, and create knowledge base. This workshop aims to capture the application areas of Data Science. Few areas are 1. Banking and Finance- solving business problems; business and market correlations; fraud and risk detection etc. 2. Smart City Planning and developmentenergy management; traffic data analysis etc. 3. Health care supply chain- predicting disease outbreak, optimize treatment and patient flow etc. 4. Time Series Analytics- reveals associated trends and patterns in data; weather forecasting; stock market prediction etc. 5. Social media and multimedia data analysis behavior analysis, recommender system etc. 6. Astro data analysis – discovery; precision; prediction etc

An online self-sponsored short term certificate course on “ Advances in Business Informatics -2021” is going to be organized by the Indian Institute of Information Technology Allahabad (IIIT-Allahabad) from 9th-13th October, 2021. This Short term programme on “Advances in Business Informatics” with four focus areas namely Operations and Decision Technologies, FinTech, MarTech and Business Analytics will have an overarching theme of Cyber Security proposed to be covered as 5 days short term course which is aimed to orient existing domain expertise towards this emerging disicipline and ignite researching in the related domains. The main objectives of the Short term programme on “Advances in Business Informatics” are: ● Emerging Technology and advances in computing power are revolutionizing the Business world; Operations and Decision Technologies studying how business processes function, and how to employ advanced technology to make optimal or near-optimal decisions in a variety of business contexts. The data-driven decision making paving the way towards more adaptive and realistic decicion making. ● With huge surge in online delivery of financial services, trading, investing, and risk assessment, the FinTech revolution is rapidly transforming the financial industry with disruptive innovations. The growing breadth volume, and speed of financial data require tools such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to evaluate opportunities and mitigate risks. FinTech as an ecosystem is being supported by disruptive technology used to make banking and financial services more accessible with trustworthy authentication mechanism like Blockchain technologies ● MarTech introduces the opportunities and challenges of using Marketing technologies. The opportunities range from targeting the right audiences to personalizing messaging to leveraging new digital technologies to effectively managing complex multi-channel marketing campaigns. The challenges include the gap between how marketers think of their problems and how technology providers describe their solutions and then selecting the best strategy. ● The course will expand the understanding of Business Analytics and teach you how to use descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics to identify, analyse and solve critical business problems. You will learn to effectively evaluate recommendations and communicate credibly with those who have deep technical knowledge in the field, having a greater impact within your organisation.

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.
