THE THEME for the year 2018-19

MACHINE LEARNING AND THE HUMAN INTERFACE

  • With its Theme, “MACHINE LEARNING AND THE HUMAN INTERFACE” Chaitanya is going to step right out into the Future. The academic year 2018-19 is going to be an exhilarating one for Chaitanya. Our lives are going to change so dramatically that as a society we will be experiencing the “future shock” which futurist author Alvin Toffler defined as “too much change in too short a period of time”. However, as Generation Next, our young students are going to take the change and developments in their stride and take the new world head-on.
  • Artificial Intelligence, Robots and so on, in their highly tech world will be by-words in their lives. Devices of increasing sophistication are becoming available to facilitate the human – machine interaction. Our children are going to have to make adjustments with digital and human transformation which Steven Van Belleghm talks about in his book ‘when digital becomes human’. He says it is important for us to define a human interface because computers are good at rational processes but creativity and emotion are still the prerogative of the human being. Perhaps we should strive to keep it that way.
    These are all the aspects that Chaitanya students are going to discuss and debate in the coming year.
