    About the Event

    Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Image and video processing are different areas of great interest to academics and industry professionals. The areas of application of these disciplines range widely, encompassing fields such as text processing, medicine, robotics, industrial inspection, security and surveillance. In this age of information, many online businesses are built on the creation, modification, transformation, use, and reuse of information. Many online sources provide means for use of their data via APIs from which one needs to extract information. Web scraping is gathering data through any means other than a program interacting with an API or through a human using a web browser. To process the scraped data, some techniques comprising Natural Language Processing (NLP) are applied. Image processing Applications include medical/biological image processing, finger print/face/iris recognition, aerial/satellite image interpretations, inspection/sorting of industrial products etc. Some of the applications of video processing include video games, security and surveillance.

The aim of this workshop was to give a brief exposure to the students about various investment avenues and financial products and services.

Dr.A.Irin Sutha, Assistant Professor, Department of CS and AF elaborated the theme of this workshop.

                              The main motto of this workshop is new financial institutions, players, instruments and financial products are developed. Indian Stock Exchange activities are growing very fast. Investor’s perception is also changing and they are diverting interest from conventional mode of investments to new instruments and products. There is always a need to create awareness among the investors regarding the financial market and their rights.

                              After the formal welcome, the workshop was handed over to the resource persons for the day. Mr. Kishore Kumar, CEO of Trade Achievers Training Academy Pvt Ltd., talked about how important the need for strategic investment is, with his presentation focusing on how mutual funds work and how the investment should be diversified and handed over to experts instead of experimenting too much.

                              He also added how the need for the trading floor in India is increasing by the day and how his work in that department is important for the financial future of India, which is purely going to be dealt with in derivatives and mutual funds.

                              Mr. Walter Vasanth, ACS, Simpson Group of Companies, presented his views on “What, Where, Who and I”. This section was not only interesting but also informative, with the speaker mixing pop references and movie references to keep his presentation engaging and maintaining the decorum of the dais at the same time. He was very interested in explaining how investment is important for all of the future generations and how the investment should be made in arenas of profit where it would be helpful in the longer term than the short term. He also talked about how, why and where the investments should be made, with preference given on the financial market and its dips and increases. 

                              Dr.Padmaja Priyadharshini, Managing Director at M/S Home Plan Guru Civil Consultants Pvt. Ltd., briefed about “Entrepreneurship”. She explained the topic with some current examples and experiences. The sessions went on well.

                              The workshop was conducted smoothly with the help power point presentation adding more value to the talk. It revolved around various topics of grave importance in the field of finance. The topics discussed were mutual funds, regulatory authorities in finance and on investor interest and protection.

                              The afternoon session was taken over by Mr.B.S.Krishnan, Assistant Manager, City Union Bank, Kumbakonam, alumni of this Department. He stressed about various investment schemes in the Banking sector. This session was so interactive. He raised many questions with students.

                              The workshop was quite wholesome, detailed and rendered to exact information that was required by the students at the undergraduate level. The students were actively involved in the discussion and the whole session was very interactive.

                              Mr.S.Sairam, Assistant Professor in Commerce, ended it with the Vote of Thanks.

He welcomed SRM University gesture of engaging with rural community and doing what they can for village upliftment.

                              Mr. T. Elumalai, Ex-President thanked SRM for their commitment and relentless effort to serving his village. He was proud of his people who stand united as one community for any matter that concerns their village. As a token of gesture and gratitude, he presented all dignitaries on stage with a shawl. The UBA team also presented all chief guests with a shawl.

                              Mrs.Chitra, Assistant Head Master proposed the vote of thanks. She presented few requests for SRM Managament, one of which was to establish a 'digital classroom', which will be facilitated as per the Village Development Plan of Thenmelpakkam.

                              The programme ended with distribution of writing pads for students freely donated by NSS team, which had key message about  'Hand Wash' inscribed on it, a gentle reminder to students about keeping their hands clean at all times.

                              The function concluded with National Anthem.  Refreshment was served to all present and medical camp was formally commenced.

                              The student volunteers facilitated the medical camp and helped the villagers at each of the check up stands: dental, eye, general checkup, blood sugar testing and medicine dispensing. It was a coordinated effort by all general physicians, dentists, nurses and lab technicians.

                              In a well known quote by Warren Buffet, it is said “someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”. This is true in today’s scenario as greenery is required to balance the environment. The students and teachers of Government Primary and Higher Secondary School at Nattarasanpattu, Kundrathur block, Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu put forth a request to SRM Institute of Science & Technology for donation of plants, as there are no shaded trees in their school ground.

                              Tree plantation at govt primary school, Nattarasanpattu

                              On 26th February 2019, SRM Institute of Science & Technology organized “Tree Plantation” at Nattarasanpattu Government Primary and Higher Secondary School under the aegis of Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, a flagship programme of Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India with aim to accelerate development and growth in villages through participatory and appropriate technologies. A team of 50 enthusiastic NSS student volunteers and staff from Maintenance Department with required equipments, planting materials and manpower visited the schools. A whole day was dedicated to this event as it required levelling the school ground with mud, followed by planting 28 saplings of Albizia saman/rain tree and Peltophorum pterocarpum/yellow flame tree, fencing and watering. Through this participatory process, local residents, students and teachers actively engaged in cleanup of the school ground and tree planting. Under the instructions of Head Master, the students volunteered to form groups and each group pledged to look after and nurture one tree.

                              On the same day, the students also took part in plastic awareness drives in the vicinity of both the schools. This was in keeping with objectives of University Grants Commission’s directive to make swachhata part of education and also Swachh Bharat Mission to achieve clean India by 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi in 2019. There were interactive sessions with students on the importance of cleanliness, sanitation and greenery. They shared their swachhata-related practices at school and home. The students said “trees are literally the source of life on this earth. They help preserve environment by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide and are also responsible for keeping the air fresh and clean”
