Webinar on Artificial Intelligence: Industrial Manufacturing, Health Systems, & COVID19


The Inter-disciplinary Decision Science and Analytics Lab (IDeAL) at IIM Visakhapatnam welcomed Prof. Arni S.R. Srinivasa Rao, Director at the Laboratory for Theory and Mathematical Modeling, Augusta University, Georgia, on 18 November 2021, for the IDeAL-Seminar on ‘Artificial Intelligence: Industrial Manufacturing, Health Systems, and COVID-19’. Prof. Rao spoke about exact deep learning machines and the extent to which they approach the parameter of independent thinking in the absence of rule-based directions, which has been the original purpose of Artificial Intelligence (AI). He also presented a pioneering AI model for COVID-19 identification and spoke about the role of AI in manufacturing and healthcare. The webinar was hosted by Dr. Shivshanker Singh Patel, Head, IDeAL, and was attended by faculty members and students at IIM Visakhapatnam.
