Aligarh Muslim University awarded project as part of NM-ICPS
Aligarh: At the initiative of Vice Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor; Aligarh Muslim University has started working on artificial intelligence and it has been awarded the BRAIN (Bio-medical Research using modelling, Artificial Intelligence and Simulation) project as a spoke (in collaboration) with the Indian Institute of Technology, Indore and National Institute of Technology, (Tiruchi) as a part of the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) programme launched by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
Under the NM-ICPS project, heralded as the next paradigm shift in technology to exponentially spur growth and development; AMU and its Innovation Council and University Incubation Center (IC and UIC) will be used as a Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) to carry out the BRAIN project in the Health Care area, said the Vice Chancellor, Prof Mansoor.
In the BRAIN project, AMU will be using system modelling, simulation and visualization techniques combined with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to develop technological solutions in bio-medical research particularly in the areas of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), coronary heart diseases, depression and Alzheimer’ s and Cancer Stem Cells. BRAIN is a multidisciplinary, inter-faculty project comprising members from the faculties of engineering, sciences, life sciences and medicine.
In the project, AMU will also be working on the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), defined by the National Science and Engineering Research Board (NSERB), Government of India as a new class of engineered systems that integrate computation and physical processes in a dynamic environment. CPS encompasses technology areas such as cybernetics, mechatronics, design and embedded systems, Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence.
AMU is one of the 15 technology innovation hubs and its spokes (TIHs) to implement the mission besides six sectoral application hubs (SAHs) and four technology translation research parks (TTRPs).
