In recent years, Machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT) are the topmost trending topics in the IT Industry. According to recent research studies, billions of IoT devices are used in smart application developments. As the title of this workshop indicates, these technologies contribute more to the revolution of the IT World.
The Information Technology Department of UTAS - Nizwa, has always believed in sharing knowledge on different platforms among faculty and staff members sequentially. Under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Duhai Al Shukaili, Head of IT Department, the department has continuously conducted technical and research activities for the staff members through different seminars, workshops, webinars, and training sessions.
Dr. Jehan Murugadhas, Lecturer of Networking/Internet and E-Security Section, Information Technology Department, conducted a workshop on 6th December 2022 on the topic titled “Machine Learning in IoT: Revolution of IT World”.
Dr. G Mary Amirtha Sagayee, Member of the SDU committee introduced and welcomed him to do the presentation.
Dr. Jehan, explained the technical concepts of Machine Learning, Role of Machine Learning and IoT, Fog and Cloud Services, IoT & Machine Learning Process and Research Focus using Machine Learning Algorithms in IoT domain with demonstration. In his presentation a comparative study of Market Size of Machine Learning and IoT in the world was also demonstrated. Further, he explained the applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the real world with various sample AI based project topics such as AI based Autonomous vehicle application, AI based Health care applications, AI based Agriculture applications and AI based cyber security applications. In addition, he explained different machine learning algorithms and research issues with examples.
Dr. Jehan also demonstrated the machine learning models using a web based tool namely “Teachable Machine”. He utilized the Light Sensor, LEDs and Arduino UNO microcontroller by using Tinkercad to develop the prototypes & circuit designs of real time applications.
Many IT staff participated in the workshop and interacted well with the speaker.
The session concluded with supporting and motivational words from Mrs. Sonia Soans, Head, SDU-Committee of IT Department.
