Dr. Sanjay Shinde, IPS, Additional Commissioner of Police, Pune said that at a time when society is facing various challenges and threats related to cybercrime and criminals are using the vulnerabilities to commit crimes, students should focus on emerging challenges like these to address the real-world problems while selecting projects and paper presentation.
While delivering the keynote address Atul Kahate, Technology Expert, Cryptography & Network Security said while using technologies we all should be careful as the algorithms are being created by analyzing and studying all the actions carried out by us on the social media platform. Cybercrimes happen because of three major things fear, greed and lack of technology education. We take social media very casually. But the crimes happening in the virtual world are extremely serious. Try to apply it in real-life situations and work towards it.
Dr. Milind Pande, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, MIT-WPU said we are in the era of Information Technology. We need to keep practicing and bring innovation applicable to society. Areas in computer science where students need to research and work are quantum computing, language technology, robotics, etc.
The theme of this conference revolved around sustainable frameworks using technology and provided a platform to budding researchers to present their ideas and solutions in the form of posters and paper presentations. The conference brought together students, academicians, research scholars, and industry experts to present share and discuss technical work in emerging topics like Artificial Intelligence & Data Science, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing and IoT, etc. Symbiosis Centre for Information Technology, Pune.
