Seminar on “Brain Engineering: Future Opportunity and Feasibility”

Department of Computer Science and Engineering of University of Asia Pacific (UAP) organized a seminar on “Brain Engineering: Future Opportunity and Feasibility” on July 8, 2018 at UAP Central Auditorium.

Honorable Vice Chancellor of UAP, Prof. Dr. Jamilur Reza Choudhury was present as the Chief Guest and Prof. Dr. M. R. Kabir, Pro Vice-Chancellor, UAP was present as a Special Guest in this seminar. Md. Rashedul Islam, Additional Secretary (ICT Wing), ICT Division was also present in this seminar. Brain Engineering is relatively a new research topic incorporates almost every field. “Brain Engineering” projects will provide assistance in the work of cognitive and theoretical neuroscientists to unlock deeper insights into the workings of human brains. “Brain Engineering” projects aim to develop a new integrated strategy for understanding the human brain and a novel research platform that will integrate all the data and knowledge that can be acquired about the structure and function of the brain and use it to build unifying models that can be validated by simulations running on supercomputers.

The seminar focused on highlighting the role of brain and technology to enable high impact research and its scope. In addition, it helped to identify the product and technology, clarify fund in helping to plan and implement the research outcomes. Also topics related to “Brain Engineering” i.e: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics, Brain computer interface etc were discussed on this seminar. Speakers tried to develop interest among the audience about “Brain Engineering” job opportunities.

The guest speaker S. M. Mahabub Alam, MD & CEO, Massive Star Studio Ltd. & Massive Business Academy stressed on how the brain is one of the most astonishing and intricate parts of the human body. Prof. Dr. Abdur Rab, Vice Chancellor, IUBAT, talked about how brain engineering will revolutionise the world and engineers will further engage themselves in brain research.

The seminar began with the opening speech of Prof. Dr. M. R. Kabir, Pro Vice-Chancellor, UAP and Mr. Qayum Reza Chowdhury, Treasurer, BoT. Approximately 250 teachers and students participated in this seminar.
