The Undergraduate Program at Karnavati University is working to address the development and applications of current and emerging technologies Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India (NewsVoir) With the COVID-19 pandemic, our lives have moved further into the digital world. It’s utterly impossible to imagine what life would have been like in 2020 without technology – without video calls and OTT platforms during lockdowns, virtual classes or online meetings. Internet usage has soared since the global pandemic hit. Industries around the world are under pressure to respond to ever-changing market needs. The challenges of online learning have forced economies to experiment with newer technologies. The crisis has placed a special focus on the areas of Data Science, AI and Machine Learning, Robotics and Automation and Blockchain Technology. The world is seeing accelerated adoption of these emerging technologies, leading to a new wave of demand for robotics engineers, data scientists and artificial intelligence specialists. Smart transportation has been predicted to be part of the next wave of AI innovation. Due to this tremendous demand for jobs on cutting-edge technologies, Ahmedabad-based Karnavati University has established a new school, Unitedworld School of Computational Intelligence (USCI), which will offer three-year undergraduate honors programs leading to BSc (Hons.) In Data Science, BSc (Hons.) In Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, BSc (Hons.) In Robotics and Automation and BSc (Hons.) In Cryptography and Blockchain. USCI has an excellent infrastructure and talented teachers from reputable institutions. “We are establishing four laboratories: Data Science Lab, Artificial Intelligence Lab, Cryptography and Blockchain Development Lab and Robotics Lab, in addition to the basic Physics Lab, Electrical Lab, Electronics Labs and Circuit Design Lab,” said Ritesh Hada, President, Karnavati University. USCI’s Data Science Lab is equipped with high-quality computer systems and required software. The Institute’s AI Lab has NVIDIA workstations equipped with a CUDA processor. Blockchain Development lab has systems with high configuration and required software. Robotics Lab has Kits for designing robots, arms for student experiments. Dr. Raju Shanmugam, founder and dean of the Unitedworld School of Computational Intelligence (USCI) at Karnavati University, said, “With the coronavirus pandemic, we have witnessed more disruption than we’ve seen in decades. Post-Covid, it makes sense to predict what the role of technology will be in the recovery process. I would encourage all parents to ensure that their children do not depend on tomorrow’s technologies for jobs of the future. And that is only possible if they shift their focus to emerging technologies. “USCI has academic partnerships with Oracle Academy for Data Science and Analytics, Red Hat Academy for professional Certifications and UiPath Academy Robotics Process Automation. All faculty members will be trained by these multinational corporations (MNCs) for continuous improvement of their advanced skills. technologies.
