Webinar on Introducing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the Non-Computer-Based Audience organized by ASME AUST Student Chapter

The ASME AUST Student Chapter hosted a webinar titled "Introducing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the Non-Computer-Based Audience" on February 8, 2023 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

Prof. Dr. Md Raisuddin Khan, Department of Mechatronics Engineering, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, graced this webinar with his remarkable AI-related insights and experience. The webinar was accessible to all students and faculty. The webinar provided participants with extensive knowledge about cutting-edge technology and its possible applications.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has evolved as a promising discipline during the last few decades.  The strength of AI lies in its learning and decision-making capability in complex data-driven environments. People from different existing disciplines either as individuals or in groups are contributing to this emerging field, specifically, people with computer science backgrounds are  playing a key role. This talk is mainly designed for the non-computer science background audience to help them understand AI. The talk will highlight a few types of AI techniques like Fuzzy logic, Artificial Neural Network (ANN), Genetic Algorithm (GA), and graph-based algorithms in robotics navigation. The talk will also try to shed light on mathematics and programming requirements for practicing AI through some examples.
