SEDS KCT, with the collaboration of Spaceonova, conducted a two-day workshop related to the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in space applications. The “Artificial Intelligence with Space Applications” workshop began with an introductory speech given by Ms. Janani Priyadharshini V S from the Event Management team. She welcomed the participants and the guest speaker of the day, Mr. Soutik Nandy, the director of information technology at Spaceonova.
Date: 11.04.2022 – 12.04.2022
Day: Monday -Tuesday
Time: 5.30 – 7:00 PM
Venue: Swami Vivekananda Seminar Hall & MS Teams
On the Day 1 of the event, Mr. Soutik Nandy expressed gratitude to Janani for his introduction. He began by providing a brief description of Spaceonova and upcoming workshops. He also expressed gratitude to SEDS KCT for accepting to work with him. He then went on to discuss artificial intelligence and how it is being developed and applied. He also presented the students a number of illustrations illustrating the application of artificial intelligence in the space sector. He lectured on machine learning in general during the session. He then went on to explain the several subtopics, such as unsupervised, supervised, and reinforced learning. He also provided some intriguing instances. He then went on to teach the students about artificial intelligence’s applications and components, which provided them a better understanding of the field.
On the Day 2 of the event, Mr. Tanmay Sharma from Spaceonova kicked off today’s programme with a coding session. He began by describing how Artificial Intelligence is coded and run as a Python programme. To demonstrate how Artificial Intelligence functioned, he used himself as an example. He then sent a drive link to the pupils in the chat box, which contained the AI software coding. Students were shown what the programmes did and how the AI functioned after copying and pasting it into their Python compiler. Students changed their programmes as they learned about the codes and how to change them. After the students finished their programs, they put them into action to create an AI that could work on the spot. Mr. Soutik Nandy continued the session he had the day before after the coding session ended. This seminar covered Artificial Intelligence-based Space Applications in a nutshell. The pupils were invited to fill out a feedback form after he finished his presentation. The workshop had come to a close.
The event will focus on artificial intelligence applications in space. The main goal of the event is to gain a general concept of what artificial intelligence is. Is there a place for it in the realm of space exploration? The scope of the project and a basic programming sample will be explained.
