Invited Talk at The Indian School

I conducted a session with the teachers of The Indian School on Artificial Intelligence (AI) on Thursday 16th May. I would like to thank Dr. Anu Singh, the Vice Principal and HOD Science at The Indian School for giving me an opportunity of wonderful interaction with the teachers. It was fun to be back in the school in a different role. I had planned an activity of the Wumpus World to learn about reasoning in AI and the teachers enjoyed it. I was glad to know that CBSE is planning to launch a course in AI for high school students. I strongly believe that India needs to have an aggressive plan on AI similar to China.

 

Started the course on Social Robotics

I am offering a 2 credit course on Social Robotics during the current semester for senior undergraduate and graduate students. Today I had my first class in IIIT-Delhi and due to some confusion in the schedule, I almost miss it! Thanks to our Academics Manager Ms. Sheetu for reminding me. Fortunately, I had some introduction slides ready and the students did not leave even after 10 minutes of delay 🙂
