Workshop on “Deep Learning Networks for Image Processing”
Devaraj D, Vice Chair for India Council Educational Activities
IEEE India Council conducted the online workshop on “Deep learning networks on image
processing” during 22nd – 23rd December 2021 through online mode. In the two-day event, 285 students from various institutions participated. The program started with welcome address by Dr. D.Devaraj, Vice Chair for Educational Activities, IEEE India Council. He highlighted the initiatives taken by IEEE India Council to reach out to the members from various parts of the country. He also outlined the topics to be discussed in the workshop.
The workshop focused on the fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), ANN
implementation using MATLAB, Convolution Neural Networks (CNN) for image processing, and Advanced Deep Learning Networks. The resource persons of the workshop are Dr. D. Jude Hemanth (Karunya University, Coimbatore, India), Dr. D.Devaraj (Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education, Krishnankoil, India), Dr. J Sheeba Rani (Indian Institute of Space Technology, Trivandrum), Dr. Josephine Selle J (Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education) and Mr. Moinak Bhattacharya (Stoony Brook University, New York).
The valedictory ceremony was conducted afterwards. Dr. Suresh Nair, Chairman for IEEE IC was the chief guest of the valedictory program. Dr. Suresh Nair appreciated the efforts of the IEEE IC EA team in organizing this event and he encouraged the participants to apply the tools they have learnt for real world problems. He congratulated the winners of the quiz and issued the certificates to them. Dr.
Prerna Gaur, Treasurer for IEEE IC, felicitated the function. During the feedback session, the participants
told that they have learnt the concept of artificial neural networks and deep learning networks through this workshop. Dr. D.Devaraj proposed the vote of thanks in which all the organizing team members, resource persons, participants and volunteers were thanked for their effort and time in making this event a grand success. The session ended with a photo session.
