3rd Annual International Conference on
School of Engineering, Ajeenkya D Y Patil University, Pune announces its 3rd Annual International Conference on Innoventive Engineering – Intelligent System Integration 2021. This conference presents the state of the art and future perspectives of system integration, where students, industry experts, researchers, and academicians share ideas, experiences, and publicize their work encompassing frontier technologies, breakthroughs, and innovative solutions and applications.
The seismic shift towards intelligent systems has radicalized and poised human life to witness a dynamic future. While envisioning these changes Bertrand Russell and Isaac Asimov predicted in the last century the surge of creativity of human spirits to lead a life of eternal youth with unbelievably fewer hassles in mundane life.
Intelligent System integration is one of the strategic technologies that focus on the integration across different domains like IT, Telecom, Automobile, Agriculture, Aviation, Food, Healthcare, Business, Construction, Electronics, Pharmacy, Renewable energy, E-commerce, Defence, Biotechnology and Education. It imparts equal importance to human intelligence and artificial intelligence, while also exploring key hardware, software, and system interfaces in the technological and management processes for developing future-proof engineering systems. This proffers a truly multidisciplinary platform for global thought leaders and innovators alike, discussing emerging issues in the field of integration of different smart engineering systems, tackle intricate problems, and find novel enabling solutions with a special focus on (but not limited to) AI-based systems and technologies
