Xtra Edge

In the early 90's, Information Technology related businesses flourished in modern India growing in leaps and bounds, India's young educated population was the RIGHT mix needed for the IT industry. Hiring large numbers of resources was a CRITICAL FUNCTION in every IT firm. Traditionally, the B Tech core curriculum across various universities designed once, has not been changed. The Core curriculum while being an excellent launch pad for students, leaves a large Gap when the engineers have to be assigned to a project in the industry. To bridge this gap many interventions have been initiated by the academia and the Industry such as finishing schools, boot camps, electives etc.

CLi has designed and developed a futuristic framework to address this GAP through a well-structured model along with Industry Partners IBM, global IT Leader. In an agreement executed with Industry partner and Universities where, the Industry partner defines the industry Needs (specializations viz. cloud computing , Mainframe, analytics etc), University develops the teaching curriculum and CLi provides the platform, Infrastructure & logistics support , governance in addition to high availability of SYSTEMS ensuring SMOOTH execution

With key inputs coming in from industry, the courses have been made more relevant, applicable and current to the knowledge requirements of the industry. Beside regular class room sessions, education is imparted through a well-designed online learning platform. With the support of various components available on the platform, it provides knowledge and experiences on various industry aligned available courseware, helps in developing applications on an Open Source platform, refreshes the knowledge on the latest development in technology, clarifies doubts on discussion forums, connects to the community for support and interaction, and recognizes meritocracy.

The aim is to make education relevant to the needs of the industry and provide a rich learning ecosystem to students by bringing together faculty, industry professionals and peers. Thus the knowledge imparted to the students enhances their employment prospects.

Along with Industry Partner, we have developed detailed curriculum and course content that runs parallel with the other credit courses commencing in the First Semester itself assuring that the student learn the technologies along with other subjects at appropriate skill levels.

Today the world is talking of the 5th Wave or SMAC (Social Media, Mobility, Analytics & Cloud)

One of the CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS of this program is availability of SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS (SME's)

These SMEs demonstrate a DEEP understanding of technologies including products / services built leveraging the latest technologies , many of them have an R &D background and ALL OF THEM share a High passion for sharing their learning by teaching and mentoring students in the Gen X/Y/Z and also millennials.

Our SMEs deliver the following:

Webinars: Informative, IT related webinars focused on how technology is applied for business needs. Webinars are scheduled based on the academic calendar of the university / institution. The topics are relevant to the Year and semester of the participating students. Typically webinars are followed by a Quiz and the participating students are awarded points.

SME visit to campus: Once every semester SMEs interact with the students at the campus by spending a day or two with the students and faculty. During this time the Students interact in large groups by year and semester or in some cases as open house.

Mentoring: Students are encouraged to interact with the SMEs through mentoring sessions. These are sessions where students can opt for group mentoring or individual mentoring.

Content development: Students are encouraged to interact with the SMEs through mentoring sessions. These are sessions where students can opt for group mentoring or individual mentoring.

Technical Papers

Making the learning process comprehensive and letting the students expand on the knowledge base is 'Technical Paper' .' Technical paper' is an online module within iCos which allows Subject Matter Experts and students to come together .Through this feature the students compete with their peers within college and outside. The students have a chance to showcase their in-depth knowledge of a core subject or domain area on a topic given by the Experts. Flexibility is provided to the students to compete individually or in a group.

What has got the students excited is the prospect of researching and adding to the latest trends changing the industry. Moreover, their submissions are evaluated by Experts from the industry and the few top-class Papers gets publicised throughout college. The winners can proudly talk about it as one of their achievement during college.

With guidance provided by iCos, this module goes a long way in initiating the professionals of tomorrow towards thought leadership!


Poster Competitions

Combining learning with creativity is the 'Poster Competition'. Here the students have fun and give way to their creative side while elaborating on an idea! The module makes it possible for the posters to be shared and evaluated online. Thus the student's thought and expression is not limited to their college wall but shared amongst a vast audience across geography.

'A picture is worth a thousand words' and we ensure that the students have an avenue to do so!


Student experience

"GuruKool was the best experience I ever had. And a lifetime opportunity that I have got. IT professionals giving talks about their ideas and IT experiences was something for the first time. As we were clueless of what IT really is. This helped me a lot.
Students from different Universities joined this event. The industry visit was one of the best of these. It was unbelievable that we saw a datacenter, the entire working of these systems. The practical aspects and the latest innovations were informed." - Venkatramanna pai
It was a good to attend ICOS training session today.

Has Turing Test really been successfully passed?

The month of Jun 2014 was an exciting month in the progress of Artificial Intelligence. For the first time since Alan Turing threw open the challenge to AI scientists and computer to pass the Turing Test, it appeared that the test will ultimately be passed.

The 65 year old Turing Test involves checking whether people can detect if they are interacting with machines or humans. It is considered as successfully passed if the participant is mistaken more than 30% of the time in recognizing whether the conversation was with a human being or a computer during a series of keyboard conversations of 5 minutes each. Till 2014 no computer had been able to successfully pass the test.

On 07 Jun 14 Vladimir Vladimir Veselov, a Russian, now living in the United States, and a Ukrainian Eugene Demchenko, now living in Russia conducted a test at Royal Society of London at an event organized by the University of Reading. They have claimed to have demonstrated that a computer could really imitate a human being, and pass the scrutiny of human judges without the latter realizing that they were interacting with a computer.

The event was organized by Reading University's School of Systems Engineering in partnership with RoboLaw, an EU-funded organization examining the regulation of emerging robotic technologies.

Other AI systems also participated, including Cleverbot, Elbot and Ultra Hal during the experiment.

During that experiment the judges and the hidden human control groups were kept in separate rooms throughout the test. The judges chatted on their computer terminals through a chat box with humans/chatbots not knowing which conversation was replied to by a human and which by a computer program, Eugene Goostman, which simulated a 13-year-old Ukrainian boy.

After the conclusion of the experiment, 33% of the judges was convinced that they were conversing with a human and not Eustane Gostman, the computer program, where as that was not the case. The judges included several celebrities.

The organizers claimed that it was a true Turing Test, as the questions and/or topics were not set beforehand. They also pointed out that that event had most simultaneous comparison tests than ever before, was independently verified and, most importantly, the conversations were not restricted to a specific topic.

However, some artificial intelligence experts have disputed the claim, citing that most probably the contest had been weighted in the chatbot's favor, and also noting the fact that the conversations lasted only 5 minutes.

Critics also point out that as the supposed chatterbox was only 13 years old, that ensured that the questions posed were very rudimentary and not a real test which Turing may have thought of.

The jury is still out whether the computer was really able to fool a human at least 30 % of the time.

Irrespective of whether the Turing Test was really passed or not, the event held in June 2014 was a great fillip to the discipline of Artificial Intelligence and has rekindled hopes of major breakthroughs in the near future in this field.
