Classes Attended & Number of students benefited:
Number of beneficiaries:In-house: 23 External: NIL
List of Resource Persons with details:
1. Dr. Jayankumar Singaram, Founder, RINANU Semiconductor LLP, Bengaluru
2. Dr. Jayakumar Venkatesan Chief Executive Officer, Valles Marineris International Private Limited
The objective of the workshop was to explore the world of new opportunities of the Internet of Things and to manage them efficiently. The Faculty members were introduced to know a model tool set with the domain knowledge, train the tool set with experience in the algorithm level, test and deploy the future of business in IoT Edge. The workshop enabled them to create a model in Watson Studio in the IBM Cloud and also install Tensor Flow software in Ubuntu 64 bit machines.
The resource person explained about the IEEE BLP and its contribution to the world of IoT in education sector, ADAS, home automation, primary health center, taxi service etc. He also dealt with the 6 ways of how Internet of Things dealt in education. The various other IoT applications and their design guide were also explored. Machine learning in the model and its possible use of Innovation at the IoT edge was also discussed.
IBM Watson IoT Platform:
Dr. Jayakumar S emphasized on Watson Studio as an integrated environment designed to make it easy to develop, train, manage models and deploy AI-powered applications. It is a SaaS solution delivered on the IBM Cloud.
Watson Studio provides a suite of tools for data scientists, application developers and subject matter experts to collaboratively and easily work with data. They can then use that data to build, train and deploy models at scale. These tools are preconfigured, so builders don't have to spend time installing, setting up and maintaining them. The built-in catalog function enables knowledge sharing and retention. Watson Studio can infuse AI into your business.
The faculty members were motivated to create an IBM cloud account, open IoT Device type, add IoT device and get the IoT device information. Different data sets were added and the model was trained for visual recognition to find the optimized image.
Custom network designed with Kera version of TensorFlow:
Hands on Training in TIDL (TI Deep Learning) tool set were provided with methods and process to import Deep Learning model in Tensorflow (1.0). As a part of workflow, offline training of the model was also considered and the same was used in Ubuntu 14.04 OS based PC. Data for training was taken from Tensorflow Github.

Title: LaTeX – A Document Preparation System
Date: 25th April 2018
Classes Attended & Number of students benefited:
Number of beneficiaries: In-house: 32 External: NIL
List of Resource Persons with details: Dr. Emmanuel Jebarajan, Rtd. HoD Dept. Mathematics, The American College, Madurai, Tamilnadu
Objective: The objective of FDP on “LATEX – A Document Preparation System” was to enable the Faculty members to know some of the useful commands in LATEX and learn writing Scientific Documents and Thesis in LATEX. To provide hands on learning in the software.
Session I: Title: LaTeX – A Document Preparation System
Resource Person: Dr. Emmanuel Jebarajan
The resource person explained the basic commands in LATEX and how to prepare scientific documents. LATEX (pronounced lay-tek) is a Document Preparation System for producing professional-looking documents; it is not a word processor. It is particularly suited to producing long, structured documents, and is very good at type- setting equations. LATEX saves formatting time and effort. The software helps to concentrate on (writing) content and NOT on formatting (appearance). It is available as free software for most operating systems. The session was indeed a motivation for the faculty members to use the software.
