Acadinnet has great pleasure in announcing a rare series of lectures, 'Insights in Science' for those seeking insight in science and its central role in driving modern technologies that form the core of the global knowledge economy.
These technologies address complex problems and their solutions require multidisciplinary knowledge.
They form the base on which the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) heavily rely upon.
The target audience includes Ph.D. aspirants, researchers, AI-rooted startup entrepreneurs, technologists, and science enthusiasts of any age group.
All inventions begin as an idea in the mind. There is no recipe for creating an invention; it can occur serendipitously (“out of the blue”; ending in an “ah ha” moment) or by following a plotted course or “prospecting” (the deliberate, tenacious, and laborious process of pursuing a winding line of work dotted with hope, desperation, and exasperation) or some combination of the two. Today’s economy heavily relies on the “plotted course”. Insights in Science focuses on the “plotted course” by showing how ideas from different scientific disciplines can be chained to solve complex problems. We live in a complex world of climate change, aging populations, and digital revolutions. The lectures aim to help businesses build their core AI group to face the future and identify the talent that can do it.
About the Speaker
About the Speaker
Professor Rajendra Bera got his BTech, MTech, and Ph.D. in aeronautical engineering from IIT, Kanpur, specializing in high-speed aerodynamics. He has been on the faculty of the University of Oklahoma, USA; IIT, Kanpur; IIIT, Bangalore; and Jain University, Bangalore. He has been a researcher, mentor, and inventor at IBM, India, and a researcher at the National Aerospace Laboratories, Bangalore. He has over 50 research papers in refereed journals, practically all are single-authored, and 28 US patents (all assigned to IBM) with him as the sole inventor. His research interests are interdisciplinary and include aerospace engineering, molecular biology, quantum computing, chaos theory, nuclear disarmament, international affairs, and intellectual property rights. He believes anyone can achieve this kind of diversity because it is all about connecting dots; it is all about watching the dots dance and tango according to mathematical tunes. He is listed in several Marquis Who’s Who. In his younger days, he was an amateur pilot. He is now the chief mentor at Acadinnet Education Services, India. He is currently writing a book on quantum computing.
His recent publications: Bera, R. K. Synthetic Biology, Artificial Intelligence, and Quantum Computing. Book chapter in Genetic Engineering Technology and Synthetic Biology, Madan L. Nagpal (Ed.). IntechOpen, London, (to appear in 2019). and Bera, R. K. AI Powered Society. Advanced Computing and Communications, March 2019, pp.59-85.

28 June 2019, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM How reliably can we compute? A correct computer program does not guarantee reliable results. How do errors creep in?
05 July 2019, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM The importance of symmetry in Nature A remarkable and simplifying aspect of Nature is the dominance of mathematical symmetry in the laws of Nature
12 July 2019, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM DNA, the book of life The amazing way the “molecular logic of the living state” is encoded in the DNA.
19 July 2019, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM The weirdness of the quantum world It is so weird that Erwin Schrödinger said, “I don’t like it, and I’m sorry I ever had anything to do with it.”
Subsequent lectures may carry a registration fee unless sponsored.
