A few weeks ago, I finished my course module on “Research Integrity and Ethics” for the graduate students at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Goa. It was a delight to teach this module and my students were also very interested. Needless to say that in these times of COVID-19 , it was all conducted online! Shown here is an image of my students, that I took with their consent. (I am in the bottom right corner).

Artificial Intelligence (AI) for All Workshop

In Artificial Intelligence, Education, Science & Technology Promotion and Public Policy, Welcome to Engineering on September 3, 2019 at 10:16 PM

My colleague, Clint and I organized an AI for All workshop on August 31, 2019. The workshop was attended by forty high school students and their teachers from school in and around Ponda, Goa. It was a day well spent in an academic activity where we interacted with these students and introduced very basic concepts of AI to them. Our hope is to get them excited about AI and that they develop an inquisitiveness to learn more about it. The workshop was supported by a grant from ACM Special Interest Group on AI (SIGAI) under its AI Activities Fund.

We also released an “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Storybook” which is available for free download: ACM-SIGAI-IIT Goa-Storybook.

The student participants were given printed copies of the storybook as a token of appreciation for showing interest in the subject of artificial intelligence.
