The talk will apprise the audience to the recent advances in AI & Robotics in particular, to a specialized and upcoming field within machine learning i.e. Deep Learning. The talk will begin with some of the recent developments and applications in this domain as well as share some personal real life instances as a use case. Hereafter, the presentation will take a tangent and talk about robotics and a technique for intelligent vehicle navigation aka SLAM (Simultaneous Localization & Mapping). Allude to the importance and the need for autonomous vehicles and finally, discuss a possible convergence of both Deep Learning and SLAM. Finally, the lecture will be concluded with a short brief on entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship arising from R&D disciplines.
