Prof. Amlan Chakrabarti of University of
Calcutta, India, gave an on-line course on "Machine Learning" to the
Kyutech students in November and December of 2020. As part of the initiative of
DISC to make full use of virtual learning for GCE (Global Competency for
Engineer) enhancement, Prof. Chakrabarti was invited to give this 8-session
course completely virtually via Skype from his home university in Kolkata,
India. This course gave a comprehensive introduction to various topics in
machine learning to enable them to design and implement machine learning
solutions to classification, regression, and clustering problems. Targeted to
senior undergraduate and graduate students, the sessions were attended by over
20 students both from University of Calcutta and Kyushu Institute of
Technology. Based on this success, DISC will continue to expand on-line
learning and exchange opportunities for students to expose them to world-class
experts and educators, and familiarize them with more and more virtualized work
environments in a post-pandemic world.
2018 International Symposium on Dependable Integrated Systems will be held
on the Iizuka Campus of Kyushu Institute of Technology. Prof. Adit Singh
