MACHINE INTELLIGENCE AND DATA ANALYSIS RESEARCH CENTRE (MIDARC)

in collaboration with

About The Center (MIDARC):

Machine Intelligence and Data Analysis Research Centre (MIDARC) has been established with two international partners Stevens Institute of Technology, USA as Academic partner and Machine Intelligence Research (MIR) Labs, USA a global non-profit academic consortium and IBM as industry partner. The aim of establishing this center is to offer an integral and ideal platform for the research scholars to coordinate and focus the multifarious domain specific research acumen in delivering a cutting edge technical solution and applications to the lingering business problem. The incubation of this center MIDARC happens to fall in line with time when the current digital world is governed by Computational Intelligence, Big Data Analytics and Cognitive Computing.

Why do we need?

It is believed that the future internet is going to provide us the framework to integrate, control or operate virtually any device, appliance, monitoring systems, infrastructures etc. An Internet enabled cyber-ecosystem is not far away. Such a complex system has to be autonomous and able to continuously adapt, providing the required quality of service levels according to different service level agreements, without requiring the need of much human intervention. The challenge is to design intelligent machines and networks that could communicate and adapt according to critic or error information, self-organize and resilient in case of a system, service or component failure due to natural cause or a malicious attack. Currently a lot of focused research works is going in different areas and most of these results are confined to the institutions and laboratories. We believe that this Centre would integrate the various research efforts to build complex intelligent machines and networks that can tackle our complex problems of the future.

Vision and Mission:

The Vision of the MIDARC center is to transform into best in quality world class and self-sustained research centre offering an integral platform to synergize the research potential in realizing the best of breed, state of art business solutions through the deployment of cutting edge technologies and applications. The Mission of the center is to usurp the resources and infrastructure in an optimal way to emerge as a full-fledged research centre with rich portfolio of research projects accrued from top nodal funding agencies.

The center would focus on the following research areas:

  1. Machine Intelligence
  2. Big data Analytics
  3. Data Sciences
  4. Cyber Physical Systems
  5. Natural Language Processing
  6. Deep Learning
  7. Cognitive Computing

These expertise areas are built on active interdisciplinary collaborations with research groups from university's schools, as well as with national and international research centers. The center would also have on its advisory board researchers and scientist working in international universities and research centers.

Objectives:

1. These expertise areas are built on active interdisciplinary collaborations with research groups from university's schools, as well as with national and international research centers. The center would also have on its advisory board researchers and scientist working in international universities and research centers.

2.To conduct training programs in Data Science, Cognitive Science and as well as certificate courses on Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing and Machine Intelligence which is aimed at training the students on a specialized and niche domain that provides a better and fitting dimension to the students to have a competitive edge over others in placement opportunities.

3.To conduct of Workshops, Conference, Joint Publications and Consultancy Services for the benefit of scholars.

Societal Benefits:

1. The centre has plans to develop projects that will tactfully address the lingering/enduring problems in agricultural sector that aids in weeding out undesirable problems thereby improving productivity and returns.

2.Plans are also on anvil to deliberate and develop indigenous projects that will curtail the impact of global warming.

3.Pollution Monitoring, Health Care domain and Waste Management are the other issues where the centre plans to plunge and propose remedial measures to mitigate its impact and influence.

Highlights / Achievements

  • Received Rs.6 Lakhs for Department of Science and Technology (Big data Imitative Division) for organizing 10 days training programme on Big data Analytics and conducted 14 Mar 2016 to 24th March 2016.








  • Multipronged innovative techniques are formulated to steer the scholar's research prudence in right track to culminate developing cutting edge and state of the art solutions to daunting business problems. The Department has already initiated joint seminars, workshops and collaborative research with the partners to incubate a centre in the area of Machine Intelligence and Data Analytics.
