ACM’s Student chapter serve as an activity hub for ACM members and the computing community at large. It provides seminars, lectures, learning forums and networking opportunities with peers and experts across the computing spectrum. The Chapter aims exclusively for the educational and scientific purposes to promote the following”
Title: MACHINE LEARNING WORKSHOP SERIES
Date: 17th August, 2019
Resource Person: Ms. ADITI TIWARI, Data Scientist, Wizely
Objective: To Provide hands on experience in Machine Learning for the women students.
The workshop series on Machine learning was taken by Ms.AditiTiwari, Data Scientist, Wizely who is a member of ACM, Bangalore chapter. The main objective of this session is to provide a learning experience to the women students to apply artificial intelligence that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning focuses on the development of computer programs that can access data and use it learn for themselves. The overview about Machine learning and the basics of statistics and probabilities, random variable were the topic of discussions for the session.
Outcome: To relate statistical concepts into Machine Learning and to develop computer programs that can access and use data by themselves.
ACM-W Student chapter, Department of Computer Science(UG), organized a one day workshop on Photoshop, “PIXEL-Digitally Creative” on 22 November 2017. The Event was inaugurated by Fr.Lijo P Thomas, Financial Administrator and HOD, Department of Computer Science(UG) along with Prof.Sevuga Pandian, Staff Coordinator and Dr.Ranjitha M, Faculty Sponsor, ACM-W Student Chapter.

Exhibition was a major eye opener among students because these dolls actually depicted the everyday life in all its glory and simplicity.
ACM-W Student Chapter, Department of Computer Science (UG), Kristu Jayanti College joined the global movement of Computer Science Education Week by hosting an 'Hour of Code' on December 9th 2017 at our campus. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
The Program started with one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and broaden participation in the field of computer science.
The session was initiated by Mr.Shriharsha, Web Developer at Accenture Solutions Pvt Ltd. He interacted with the students and demonstrated a Session on “Introduction to Python”. This was followed by the Hour of Code Activity where student developed a project on “Flappy Bike”. Students were very enthusiastic and actively participated in the session. At the end of the activity, students were awarded with an Hour of code certificate to encourage their learning. The students volunteers of ACM-W guided the participants with lot of passion.
ACM-W Student’s chapter in association with ICT academy organized the POWER SEMINAR with the title Digital Natives-The Millennial Generation.
