“Emerging is very important in engineering field for the students to look for the areas emerging out at this point, so that when they start that area to work for it and think about it and also it is safe in working such field”, said the Chief guest Dr. Kalyanmoy Deb Koenig Endowed Chair Professor for Electrical & Computer Engineering, Adjunct Faculty for Computer Science & Engineering and Mechanical Engineering while delivering the speech during an inauguration function at G H Raisoni College of Engineering, Nagpur of its 9th International Conference on “Emerging Trends in Engineering & Technology –signal and information processing ICETET- SIP-19 in association with GHR Labs and Research Centre and also technically sponsored by IEEE India Council, IEEE-AESS and IEEE Nagpur Subsection on Friday.
Dr. Deb further expressed his thoughts to always do things together as in India there is so much of talent. “May be we are doing something that have been already done with just a little extension but at some point we should do something breakthrough that will take you a step ahead” he quoted.
“We don’t have to imitate anybody, but we can come up with our model which will be followed by rest of the world and rest of the history like the swarajya movement”, said the second chief guest Dr. Mohan M. Trivedi, Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, University of California, San Diego, USA speaking during the international conference.
The GHRCE’s 9th International conference was inaugurated at the hands of Dr. Mohan M. Trivedi and Dr. Kalyanmoy Deb. Shri Sunil Raisoni, Patron ICETET-SIP-19 and Chairman, BoG, RGI. General Chair ICETET-SIP-19 and Director of Institute Dr. Preeti Bajaj; Chair, IEEE Nagpur Subsection, Quraish Bakir, Arvind Kumar; Jt. Secretary IEEE Bombay section Anand Gharpure were present during the inauguration.
Dr. Mohan M. Trivedi, Professor University of California San Diego, USA delivered a key note address on “Towards Harmonious Human – Robot Cohabitation: Promise and Challenges for Autonomous Systems. He spoke on technological innovations especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, robotics and embedded systems leading to intelligent and autonomous systems available for a wide array of applications ranging from health care to defense and agriculture to transportation. He also put forward a key challenge that needs to be addressed to make sure that the artificially engineered systems and humans cohabit in a harmonious, safe, and secure manner. The four technical sessions on ‘Digital Signal Processing ; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning ; Biomedical Signal Processing; Microwave & Satellite Systems’ chaired by Prof. Rajendra Patrikar, VNIT, Nagpur and Prof. Abhay Gandhi , VNIT Nagpur; Prof. Atul Negi, University of Hyderabad.
The industry 4.0 case study in respect of signal and information processing was presented by industry expert Er. Anand Gharpure, Jt. Secretary IEEE Bombay Sub Section. Plenary talks and Paper presentations was also conducted during the conference.
The conference aims to bring together and provide platform to the researchers from the academia, research laboratories, and stakeholders from the industry to present and deliberate the recent trends in the field of signal and information processing.
The organizing committee of ICETET-SIP 2019 General Co-Chair, Dr. Santosh Jaju, Dr. Milind Khanapurkar, Dr. Mahendra Gaikwad, Dr. Suresh Salankar, registration Chair worked hard for the success of the conference under the guidance of Dr. Preeti Bajaj, Director, GHRCE (Chair, IEEE Nagpur).
