This talk explores the similarities between the human brain and AI. It is a very high level abstraction of AI and how it enables us to unfold the convolutions of the mind. It convinces you that when you invest in AI, you are actually investing in yourself. Upamanyu Ghose is a 3rd year computer science and engineering student, who is an ex computer vision team member of Project Manas, the only team comprising only of undergraduate students, working to build India's first driverless car for Mahindra's million dollar rise prize challenge.
He has been actively pursuing projects and research in the field of computer vision and natural language processing for the past year and is currently working on a project to enable searching through contents of a video. His prior projects include, cervical cancer detection using deep learning, tweet generator, generating stem cell lineage using image processing techniques (assisted a lab in Imperial College London). He’s also a part of a group called Teach Code for Good, which focuses on teaching underprivileged children the basics of coding in order to gear them up for the future.
His future plan is to pursue research in the field of human cognition in order to understand the mind better through artificial intelligence. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
