The alumni of Indian Institutes of Technology will host ‘PanIIT Conclave 2019’ on January 19 and 20, 2019 at its campus in Delhi. The two-day conclave will focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI), its growth and related policies directed at making India a powerhouse of AI in the world in presence of renowned leaders and tech experts.
The conclave will examine opportunities for India to play the role of a global leader in the fourth Industrial Revolution led by AI and Machine Learning. The event will act as a platform for questions related to – Where does India stand in the AI world right now.
Arjun Malhotra, Chairman for the Conclave 2019 said, “We believe that India should be on the map as a thought leader of AI than being just a user of the technology and thus, the upcoming conclave will explore how best to achieve it. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are going to transform the social, economic and political life of all nations and societies, and like other transformative technologies of the past, they will change the world, but even more enable and help India to make great progress in agricultural, education, defence and healthcare sectors.”
As part of its other programmes, the IIT alumni group is also organising the first ‘PanIIT AI Hackathon 2019’. The finals of the hackathon will be held over a 24-hour period from 1 pm on January 19 to 1 pm on January 20 concurrently with the conclave.
